Thirsty? Try these Alternatives to Soda!

All too often, we see people eating healthy, working out, but still drinking soda. Let’s kick the soda addiction together with some great alternative drink choices!

Infuse Your Water With Delicious Flavor

Flavored waters are everywhere these days, but many contain sugar or artificial sweeteners. A healthier choice is natural flavoring: Just add slices of your favorite fruits and veggies — lemons, oranges, watermelon, cucumber, mint, or limes — to a pitcher of ice-cold water for a refreshing and flavorful drink.

Go Natural With Green Tea, Hot or Iced

Studies of green tea suggest that it may help reduce the risk of several types of cancer, heart disease, obesity, kidney stones, and possibly even cavities. In addition to this, green tea is calorie-free (if you have it without milk or sugar) and naturally high in antioxidants.

 

Add Juice to Seltzer

There’s no need to purchase sugary sodas or pricey vitamin-enhanced waters — which also pack calories. Instead you can mix 100 percent, no-sugar-added juice with seltzer. A thick, tart juice, such as pomegranate or grape, makes for a great jeltzer base, in addition to supplying health benefits.

 

How do you like to mix up your drinks, without packing on the calories? We’d love to hear your latest drink obsessions and recipes!
