Finding True Diet Drinks

(Image Source)

There are loads of companies out there which market their drinks are diet and light options. It doesn’t matter how bad they are for you, these products are often advertised as being good, and will often promise the idea of a healthier lifestyle. Of course, though, when you’re drinking these chemical cocktails, you could be doing yourself worse than going for the full sugar examples. Instead, it’s a better idea to work on the other drinks you like, working towards making them as healthy as possible. With all of this in mind, it should be possible to avoid the diet drinks entirely, giving you the chance to look at other areas of your health.

 

  • Coffee

 

A lot of people find it almost impossible to start the day without the right mix of chemicals to get them going. Coffee will play a large role in this, giving people the caffeine they need while also providing some much needed morning warmth. For a lot of people, the healthiest part of a drunk like this is the milk which goes along with it. Being high fat, this part of the drink can be hard to avoid, unless you know what to ask for. For those unwilling to get rid of the stuff, soya alternatives can be great, and will give very similar results to the normal coffee you drink.

 

  • Juice

 

Of course, along with coffee, having a glass of juice with your breakfast is a tradition a lot of people struggle to live without. These drinks are often incredibly high in sugar, though, and this makes them bad to consume each and every day. To avoid this issue, creating your own juice is a great way to ensure that you’re only getting the good sugars, and you only need to find a list of the best juicers on the market to get started. Whether you like bits or no bits, you should find it easy to get your hands on a morning drink which you can enjoy.

 

  • Tea

 

Finally, as the last area to consider, it’s time to think about tea, and the most common ways for it to be consumed. Iced tea has made a resurgence in recent years, promising a healthy alternative to other drinks out there. In reality, though, the companies making these options aren’t doing so with fitness in mind. Instead, they will produce options with extremely high sugar content, even if it ruins the taste. Thankfully, drinks like these are easy to make, and you’ll only need to read some reviews before you can get started.

Hopefully, with all of this on your mind, it should be a lot easier to start cutting out the unhealthy drinks from your life. Of course, it’s always worth making sure that you give yourself the chance to enjoy this part of your diet. Treats are alright, as long as they are had in moderation, but a lot of people find it hard to achieve this, finding themselves drinking badly all the time.

How to Stay Hydrated During Active Days w/ BODYARMOR LYTE #Switch2BODYARMOR

This post was sponsored by BODYARMOR and  I’m part of the Mom It Forward Influencer Network. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Most of our body aches and pains result from being dehydrated. The body is composed of 70% water. During active days that include a gym workout, running, cycling, swimming, hiking, etc., you flush out water faster not just through urine, but also perspiration. When your body goes dry, body functions perform less efficiently.  Drinking a glass of water has become more difficult nowadays unless you are at home with easy access to the bathroom.  Unless you make the conscious effort to remind yourself, and be actually excited to drink, you will not get far drinking when you should be.18765672_1463709590358770_8976003606620949659_n

Our solution is BODYARMOR LYTE, which contains electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins for super hydration.  It also has less calories (20/cal per serving only). Also, this drink provides a natural sweetness due to the taste of coconut water, so I tend to drink it more when compared to water. I can now bring a bottle or two to the gym with me and make sure I have enough for a couple of hours.  It is also ideal when I join a fun run. The problem with plain water during my gym workout or run, is that I tend to down all the water I have due to the thirst. With BODYARMOR LYTE, my thirst is quenched faster and my body recovers quicker, even with fewer gulps, mainly because of the ingredients that will make sure I stay hydrated.18765693_1463713363691726_6043216958290253884_nDehydration is one of the main causes of many aches and pains. With proper hydration, the mind is clear, the body is well and our cells function they way they should. I make a tally sheet to see I have several glasses of water a day during inactive days. I just make sure to have a few gulps at a time, but more frequently so that the water is retained in my body. (That makes me urinate less.) During active days, I add BODYARMOR LYTE to make sure I stay hydrated naturally since nothing in their drink is artificial.

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

We cannot deny the fact that tea plays an important role in our lives. Unfortunately, we tend to ignore many things about it and the biggest one is that the tea is harmful for our health. Yes, a huge intake of tea on a regular basis can cause a number of problems including the weight gain and others. However, you do not have to worry about anything now because the PIQUE has the best tea for you: Earl Grey Organic Black Tea. This black tea is the best because it makes you feel refreshed. After a long tiring day, the Earl Grey is the best drink to give me energy.

The Earl Grey Organic Black Tea is made from organic whole leaves. We can say that, unlike most of the other teas, one sachet of the Earl Grey Organic Black Tea contains almost all the nutrients that are required by our body. Not only at night, I drink the Earl Grey in the morning as well, evening or whenever I want to. It does not only make me feel fresh again, but also makes me motivated to do my work. The best part about the Earl Grey is its taste! You must have tried a lot of teas, but they all taste very much the same. However, the Earl Grey tastes so good that you will forget about any other teas. This is what happened with me!


Furthermore, the Earl Grey Organic Black Tea is so easy to make. All you have to do is to open the sachet, pour the tea crystals in a cup of hot water and then enjoy.

How much do you know about wine? Are you aware of Myka Cellars or Buonocore Zinfandel? Wine is good for the heart. Just drink moderately, though. Anything in excess can be harmful.

For example, if you are just starting to explore, you can choose the Explorations Wine Club which is only $40 per shipment. It includes 2 bottles of wine, 1 red and 1 white. If you are not new to wine tasting, the Special Selections Wine Club may suit you better, which includes 2 red wines per shipment. These wines are limited in production, yet they are high demand wines. It is only $95 per shipment.  The Reserve Selections Wine Club is for those who only drink the finest of wines, which are highly prized and are cellar worthy.

The great thing about the Wine Club is you get to taste a variety of wines over time without even leaving your home. If you are just starting to be a wine enthusiast like me, this is a great way to get started.

Taste of Good Wine

One of the secrets why the French people in general are not obese, is that they incorporate the drinking of wine in their dinner. Wine, drank moderately, is a healthy option. For those who are not used to the idea, occasional drinking of wine suffices. Since it is not a habit, not drinking enough will not benefit the health. It is not the quantity that makes wine-drinking healthy, but the frequency. One of the solutions is to join a wine club. At Uncorked Ventures, you can choose the kind of membership you want to subscribe to like the Explorations will give you 1 white and 1 red wine every shipment.

The Special Selections membership will give you 2 red wines which are limited in production. This option is perfect for people with a discerning taste or like trying different quality wine. The Reserve Selections only give highly prized, cellar worthy wines. They are respected fine wines that you will receive 2 to 3 per shipment.

I have tasted the Vina Robles Red4 2010 which is a great tasting robust wine, but I like the Lennox Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay from 2010 even more. The great thing about the wine club is you get to taste a variety of wines over time without even leaving your home. If you are just starting to be a wine enthusiast like me, this is a great way to get started.

My choice of Tea Lemonade

One of my favorite drinks at Starbucks is the passion tea lemonade, sweetened. I usually order with no ice or just a little ice at all. Since I love it so much, I tried to search for the recipe so I can make it at home. Also, it’s decaf so I can let my daughter have a taste, too! For now, I’m still searching for a good recipe, maybe I can make it this weekend!

Iced Caffè Mocha

My hubby got home early today and bought me my favorite cafe mocha from Starbucks. I was surprised and it seems like almost everyday he brings some yummy drink home for me. I was happy even though I wanted ice coffee since it was kind of cold today and I was inside with Rachel all afternoon. Anyway, I’m still thankful for my hubby being so thoughtful, as always.
