Sometimes people don’t realize they’re drinking their calories when trying to eat healthy.
Here are my favorite healthy alternatives.
-Chocolate soy milk. Although it does pack a lot of sugar, chocolate soy milk is great. It has the same benefits of dairy chocolate milk including isoflavones and no cholesterol.
Personally i would rather treat myself to sugar every now and then rather than live on diet drinks and fill my body with chemicals.
-Cranberry juice. 100% cranberry juice boasts lots of benefits and, to me, is delicious. Not only does cranberry juice help with UTIs by producing hippuric acid that acidifies the urine and stops bacteria sticking to the walls of the bladder: it also has similar effects on the gut, keeping your digestive tract healthy. Cranberries are also packed with antioxidants that help prevent dental plaque and cholesterol-based plaque in your blood vessels and lower your overall risk of heart disease.
Drink a glass a day to keep UTIs at bay :)
-Kombucha. Sounds gross but kombucha is a fermented drink made of tea and bacteria. Its said to boost your metabolism and immunity while also keeping your gut healthy.
Its definitely an acquired taste but i’ve grown to love it.
-Of course water.. need i say more?
-Green tea. I swear i cured an awful throat infection once by drinking nothing but HOT green tea, it was the only thing that soothed it and felt so much better the next day.
Its thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, periodontal disease, cognitive diseases and both viral and bacterial infections.
Whether you believe it or not, isn’t it worth a cup a day?
