Healthy Homemade Italian Sodas
Sodas are fun to drink, but the large amount of sugar, high fructose corn sweetener (did you know there’s mercury residues in high fructose corn sweetener -HFCS?), and other chemicals and additives, make sodas a terrible idea when it comes to making a healthier body.Personally I was never big on carbonation and didn’t grow up drinking soda, so it was never difficult for me to avoid. But I’m frequently asked about soda ideas from patients and I’m happy to share this new family favorite. Some people actually will drink more water if it’s carbonated and flavored. I’m happy to get creative if it makes you drink more water, so the recipes below came from that desire. Get creative and make any flavor you want; let me know what you come up with.
Does this help you to drink more water?
I’d love to hear from you.
