I have a weak spot for sodas or sweet drinks. Does anyone have any alternatives?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I usually drink coke (I know it's awful) or like Linton tea. But I know that it's got to stop. The best thing to drink would be water but I have a hard time getting through 2 bottles a day.

    I like to squeeze a half lemon in my water every morning. You could try to buy those water bottles that have a spot to put fruit in the middle like strawberry oranges or lemons. It sweetens ur water and gives u some vitamin C.

    Kotie, I can't find where to send you a PM and I posted my email to you last night but it wouldn't post because I guess we aren't allowed to send links. I do suggest you go to Faebook and join the group Hidrenitis Supportiva Support Group. It has 7890+ members and we all share our pain and pics and what helps us. Look me up and friend me.

    Tea Soda: steep 2 tea bags of your favourite herbal tea in 3 cups of boiling water. Chill. Add 1 cup of sparkling mineral or soda water.

    Soda water with Apple juice: Best if you juice your apples yourself. I always do 3 parts sparkling soda water & 1 part apple juice. You can also replace apple juice with orange juice or any other juice if you prefer. 

    Chai Latte:Steep one or two chai tea bags in a cup of unsweetened almond milk, and spice it up with cinnamon and black pepper for an extra flavor kick.

    Lemonade: Mix water, fresh-squeezed lemons, zero-calorie sweetener, and ice.

    Home made Ginger Ale:  add a spoonful of finely grated ginger to a glass of seltzer water. If you want you can add zero calorie sweetener.

    Coconut water: Buy the unflavoured and unsweetened coconut water.
