I am a soda addict...It was hard to give them up. To help I switched to chocolate milk. I have low vitamin D. Drinking milk help with the absorption of vitamin D supplements. I don't seem to be craving soda's now. 224
Eating some greens with every meal (yes, breakfast, too!) makes for a better day. I get my greens in the morning with a green smoothie (1/3 fruit, 2/3 greens and a little green tea to make it drinkable consistency) or I add them to a breakfast sandwich. It really makes a difference for me. I feel better, I don't crave soda, and it just makes my world better!)
I use a Vita-Mix blender to make my smoothies as it has the power to liquify the greens and fruit and all I taste is sweet, cold goodness! Use spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine -- any dark leafy green will work.
