Kids going back to School?

Most of our kids are going back to school now! Lessen your worries and serve them this healthy iced tea.



As we all know, the silhouette of a strawberry helps on protecting the heart. It can increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.

Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium. Just one serving -- about eight strawberries -- provides more vitamin C than an orange.

Here is a different version of iced tea. The sparkling water and strawberries adds a nice taste.

Ingredients

6 teaspoons of loose tea (or 6 teabags)
1 quart of freshly boiling water
½ cup of sugar
6 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 quart of strawberries, sliced
2 cups of ice
mint, bunch
2 cups of sparkling water

Instructions
