LIVINGBYGRACE commented about sugar in the smoothies. Who puts sugar in smoothies? Not I. I do once in awhile put a tablespoon of honey in for the nutrient benefits of the honey. I have also found that cottage cheese is nice in a smoothie instead of yogurt. Makes a nice thick smoothie.
I rarely drank soda to start with, but there are just some foods out there that beg for a soda, then I will have a diet one, but not more than once a week. I do like V8, or my plain home canned tomato juice with no salt is tasty chilled, but no substitute for soda. I really like it with some baby carrots and peanut butter for a snack.
My big thing to give up is sweet tea, and I just have not found a substitute for it. But it is a rarety anymore.
Water for me - almost always!
