Soda-Pop Snack

Here’s a tip for you pop-o-holics: Consider soda a dessert, or as something extra to treat yourself to. Sodas are basically all sugar and high in calories. If you had one 8-ounce soda every day, you could gain up to 10 pounds a year. An easy substitution would be to switch to diet sodas with zero calories and zero grams of sugar, but remember that diet sodas do not have any nutritional value. Making your own juice spritzer is another way to get your sweet and bubbly fix. Simply mix a 2 to 1 ratio of mineral water (or seltzer) and juice.
