I am trying to drink more water and eat fewer sweets.  But it’s hard.  I am sure you all remember my experiment with doing the 40-day sugar fast!  So I have found an easy way to get them both without all the calories.

Crystal Light.

I buy the tubs, which, if you follow the directions, make 2 quarts.  However, that is too strong for me.  So instead of adding 2 quarts of water, I add a gallon of water.  This dilutes by half, which is perfect and tastes so much better to me.  This has really helped me drink more water.

There are so many flavors to choose from.  We have found that the cranberry flavors are too tart, though.  Our favorite is grape.  I didn’t want to try it because I am not a big fan of grape juice.  But it’s the flavor of grape soda!  It is so yummy!  I also like the orange, apple, and raspberry lemonade.

Yum! We buy the off brand at Walmart and I LOVE the Cherry Limeade. It's a family favorite.

Yeah, we buy the off brand too. But if I wrote "Great Value Drink Mix," no one would know what I was talking about! LOL

Grape is my favorite, too! There are a couple of amazing ocean spray flavors that have not yet transferred into off brand ones...so I only enjoy those when I visit my mom.
