57. Don’t assume that “natural” sodas containing fruit juice are lower in calories than regular sodas. Sometimes they actually have more calories—and only a modest amount of added nutrients. If you’re trying to cut calories, stick with plain or flavored seltzers, or mix them with juice.
I have not thought about soda for a long time. If/when I have one it is usually diet Pepsi when out and about. I have made grenadine and diet 7-Up in the past but for some reason fruit juice is not on my list of things to have in the house. That MIGHT change end of March when granddaughters are visiting, though
I don't drink soda at all anymore and sometimes buy the Poland Spring flavored seltzers - no sweetener real or artificial. I was on a kick for a while making a drink with Pom juice, seltzer, and orange juice. It was lovely. The Pom juice is costly and I do't drink fruit juices anymore either so I haven't had one of my "cocktails" in a long time. I made them for the ladies in my Book Group once too and they loved them. I do like kombucha and sometimes I "cut" it with seltzer to make it last longer.
Just back from seeing my grandsons. I was off all of this past week for Presidents Week. They were adorable! You must be looking forward to your girls coming, Cathy. It's the best!
It's been many, many years since I've drank soda regularly. I was drinking the 'flavored carbonated waters' for a while. But those were really just diet soda without the coloring. Now I often drink flavored seltzer without any sweetener at all.
