I was looking for a Healthy Alternative to drinking water because I was getting a little bored with Athletic Greens, Green Tea and plain water on the Diet Depletion.
So I asked the by members on my Turbulence Training Facebook Page. Here are some ideas for drinking water that don’t include adding a bunch of sugars that there are minimal carbs involved, unless you add them yourself.
Natural Infused water….add sliced strawberries and kiwi in a mason jar, chill…or whatever fruit you like. – Kimberly
Agreed on the Poland Spring seltzers…tons of flavors..no sugar..On occasion I do like 0 Cal Lifewater..espec the blood orange flavor….I do cut it with water so basically i’m just flavoring the water a little…it is made with erythritol so that might not be agreeable. – Dianne
Iced tea….. make your own….refreshing or Iced coffee and you can make it decaf, throw in some almond milk, stevia blend, then pour over ice or crush ice with it. – Lisa
Green juice! spinach+cucumber+watermelon blended with 2 cups of water. Strain and drink! – Norah
Club soda with lime juice, tazo Zen green tea iced – Suzan
NIce Kimberly Nickel! Great one Norah Lorway! – Turbulence Training
Bone broth – AJ
Unsweetened, plain almond milk with a little Stevia or nectar, if you prefer. – Jesse
Cucumber, lemon and mint water. Throw it all together in a big pitcher and let it sit for a few hours. Refreshing. You can sweeten it up with stevia if you want. I freeze it in water bottles and take it on bike rides and hikes so it defrosts as I go. – Dori
Same here but i started putting lemon on it not lemonade cuz its not sweet it just has a diffrent flavor and at this point some flavor is better than no flavor – Mark
Seltzer – J Michael Jr
Sobe lifewater. Lots of good flavors. Zero calories. Natural sweetener. Fuji apple pear is my favorite flavor- Hunter
Cooke go to drinks for me are – Coffee with coconut oil, grass fed butter and coconut milk, or, pint of water with 2 good glugs of apple cider vinegar in – actually tastes rather nice – Lewis
Natural Infused water with mint, lime and cucumbers – Liza
