Tip of the Day
Cool Down with Guilt-Free Beverages
Looking for a healthy, refreshing drink to keep you cool and hydrated during the hot summer months? While just about any cold drink seems to hit the spot, you might want to rethink your options. Sodas, energy drinks and sugary fruit drinks offer empty calories from added sugars and easily can be replaced with healthy and refreshing options.
- Ice Cold Water or Sparkling Water
Add lemons, limes or cucumbers for a twist. Make sure to check the nutrition label on coconut water because some can be high in sodium.
- Low-Fat or Fat-Free Milk
Try over ice for an extra-cold beverage.
- 100 Percent Fruit Juices
Create your own concoctions by mixing different fruit juices or adding fresh fruit to them.
