Soda Substitution

This Sparked Me!

I used to always feel the need to stop for a diet soda whenever I stopped by a convenience store for gasoline. Now, I go ahead and get the ice, and then fill with water. I am saving not putting the chemicals in my body and getting 4 glasses of water by the time it is done. I still feel as if I have bought myself a treat!

    Try mixing it up. Put lemon in it. It's also good to add cucumber slices to it :)

    I've heard (but not tried yet) that putting some fresh fruit in the water such as oranges makes the water really good!
