Want to kick the soda habit once and for all? Try swapping for soda water to get that pleasant fizzy buzz without the sugar and additives in soda and diet soda. Soda water even has some surprising health benefits….
As a kid I drank copious amounts of sprite, fanta, pepsi…you name it I probably drank it. Then in high school, fancying myself to be somewhat health conscious, I switched to diet coke to cut down on calories. Little did I know that diet soda was just as bad….
As you can see, soda = bad. Now soda water, on the other hand, is a fabulous drink. It relieves symptoms of indigestion and constipation, and drinking carbonated mineral water has been found to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol in women. It poses no risk to tooth health, is calorie-free, phosphorous-free, sugar-free, and best of all, is bubbly and delightful to drink.
So if you’re feeling inspired, pour that coke down the drain and try this recipe instead for a perfect cooling summer drink:
ice cubes + soda water + a tiny bit of juice for flavoring = Yum!
