Add a drop of 100% apple juice or grape juice (my favourites) or any other juice with no sugars added (check labels) that you like, on top of your glass of water to have a change of taste now and then (when you get bored of your normal water). It adds just a tiny bit of calories but is so worth it! And sometimes i like my good ol' water just fresh and plain!! 22427491
Once a week I clean the bathroom, really get in and scrub out the tub, wash all the towels. While I am working I light a relaxing candle to make the room smell delightful and when I have burned off a couple hundred calories cleaning I pour myself a glass of sparkling white grape juice, pour bath salts and treat myself to a bubble bathinstead of my regular exercise.
These Jams are made with Grape Juice instead of Sugar and are recommended by the French Diabetes Association.This method of preserving Fruit was devised during the First World war by the present owner's Grand Mother due to the shortage of Sugar---since they had extensive Fruit Orchards and Vineyards,she devised this method to preserve the Fruit.I use this on my Toasts and in my Trifle Puddings and eat it without guilt----tastes yummy and is 100% natural-no additives!A bit expensive but worth it!
The Story behind this was published in one of the Magazines I buy---it caught hold of my Imagination and I bought my first Bottle!!The taste is so delicious that both my husband and I are hooked on it for Life!!I use it to spice up my Whole Wheat Toasts and use it sparingly----just to satisfy !!!
