Try the fruits/herbs that you were talking about with the seltzer water...even maybe a little club soda (still better than alcohol).
I always like smoothies too...and I find that I don't really miss the alcohol in the icy beverage if I get it tasting just right! Like a virgin margarita! You can still line your glass with salt or sugar (or stevia if that's what you prefer). Probably want to cut back on that as time goes on, but to get your taste buds in gear, start with cutting out the alcohol!

Hi. My name is Sallie. I work out a few days a week with three other girls in their forties. We drink alcohol most days. We know it is bad for the nutrient component. I want to stop Monday thru Thursday. If I can come up with delicious alternatives I may be able to persude them as well to take a "breather". I am thinking of using ginger, cucumbers, mint, limes, lemons, oranges and maybe kiwi as a base and then stirring in stevia and toping drink with seltzer water. Using a combo not all at once. Anyone have non alcoholic low cal drink ideas? Thanks
