The definition of “being healthy” means something different to each and every person. For some, it’s working out obsessively or cutting out all carbs. For others, it’s something a little simpler, like substituting a cookie for a yogurt or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Personally, I think that as long as you’re making strides to be healthier in your own way, kudos to you!
Everyone has their vice: sleeping in past their alarm, eating chocolate, drinking soda… You don’t have to completely cut these things out of your life (after all, I could never live without a little chocolate), but just make some healthier changes. Today I’m going to show a few ways to make these indulgences a bit healthier- without giving them up entirely. First up? Soda.
Did you know that each serving of the Core Four TEN products (7UP, Sunkist, A&W and Canada Dry) only has ten calories? Soda lovers can still enjoy the occasional, full flavor beverage by choosing to purchase one of these products. While making a short trip to Walmart recently, I picked up these beverages along with a few other healthy snacks. Here is a fun drink recipe that shows how your favorite foods/drinks can be made a bit healthier.
7 Up Mocktail Recipe
What better way to treat yourself to a soda then by infusing it with some fruit? This easy “mocktail” only requires a few ingredients: 7UP, lemon juice and your favorite fruits. First, pour yourself a tall glass (or pitcher, in my case) of 7UP. Then take your choice of fruit (frozen or fresh) and add a few pieces to the glass. Finish it off with a squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice. If you leave the fruit until the end, it will be soaked with the fizzy, lime-flavored soda, which makes it extra yummy. I chose lemons and strawberries for this example.
Right now, Walmart is offering $0.50 off of the purchase of TWO 2 Liter bottles or TWO 4-pack cans of 7UP TEN, A&W TEN, Canada Dry TEN, RC TEN or Sunkist TEN soda. This offer is available while supplies last, from 3/27-4/17. Click here for the coupon. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more deals!
James and I like to snack- I mean, who doesn’t? I happen to have a sweet (and salty) tooth, so the challenge for me is to get a little of those tastes while still eating healthy. My go-to healthy snacks are organic popcorn and salsa with whole-wheat chips. James’ favorite snacks lately is Sabra hummus and flavored almonds (the vanilla ones are to die for!)
What are your favorite yummy, but healthy snacks?
