Sometimes at night I get a hankering for something sweet. Instead of grabbing sweets or even fruit, I make a strong cup of fruity (decaf) herbal tea. I especially like tea that has a bit of a kick to it, like the various Zinger teas or minty teas. I don't add sugar because the tea is naturally fruity. An added benefit: it helps you to relax at the end of the day AND it counts as water.

Water at work tastes AWFUL, even with Brita pitcher, so I steep fruit/herbal tea in 8 ounces of water until it's dark, then pour over ice with cold water -- better than crystal lite because there's no artificial sweeteners, no caffeine. I'm drinking much more water this way.
Herbal, caffeine free teas work bets -- Right now I'm working through a box of Celestial Seasonings Fruit Tea Sampler.
