I am Changing
Instead of drinking sodas, I started purchasing carbonated waters as a healthier alternative. I just started and so far, I like it. I made homemade lemonade and added sparkling seltzer water- raspberry flavor (Kroger brand). It had a lot of fizzy and flavor. I only poured what I wanted to drink at that setting. As with any carbonated beverage, it lost its fizz after a couple of days. I also purchased club soda caffeine free (Kroger brand), and it works just as well.
There are so many flavors that can be made. You could add a twist of lemon or think outside the box; lime, cranberry juice, blueberries, strawberries, orange juice, cotton candy, or anything you can come up with for a new beverage flavor. Make something that grabs your taste buds.
I am still trying to convince my husband that he should stop drinking sodas. So far, my pleas have gone unnoticed. I will keep trying though.
Club soda- carbonated water, sodium bicarbonate, salt, potassium sulfate
Sparkling Seltzer Water (Raspberry)- carbonated water, natural flavor
