Giving up sodas I think is a big part of getting healthier and losing weight. This means diet sodas too. Just reading the effects of saccharin is scary. Its been PROVED that it causes cancer. I hate knowing they had to test this on animals :( So that alone should scare you away!
But sometimes I do want something bubbly! So thanks to my wonderful health coach Carol Nees, she shared with me a way to make homemade sprite! Which is really about the only "soda" I want every once in a while.
So here you go, maybe this will help break the soda cycle for you!
Glass ( 8 oz or so) of Sparkling Mineral Water
Half of a FRESH squeezed lemon ( you can add some lime too)
Packet of SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetner ( I used half a pack and thought it was plenty sweet)
** Please note I said a fresh lemon. Already made lemon juice has been pasteurized which kills the goodness of the lemon. ( Learned this from my sweet friend Marlaina !! )
