Looking for FOO creativity here.
I used to drink two cans of Pepsi a day. I quit cold turkey a few weeks ago. I don't feel better or worse. In fact, I don't feel different at all. All I have been drinking since quitting Pepsi is water. I used to drink lots of water before I quit pop, so the water habit is nothing new, either.
But, water is boring.
What can I replace my Pepsi habit with? My goal is to replace Pepsi with something healthier, otherwise what would be the point, right? I tried Hi-C lemonade, but the sugar shock I got from it sent me through the roof, and it's probably less healthy than Pepsi, anyway.
Here are some things that can NOT replace Pepsi:
--Other sodas. I don't want soda at all.
--Nothing alcoholic, obviously.
--Milk. I can eat cheese or ice cream, but even a few sips of plain milk sends my stomach into quasi-food poisoning reactions.
--Pure fruit juices. Pear juice, apple juice, etc all send me into a sugar-spike headache.
So, what is left to drink?
--I am open to teas, of course, but ideas for tea have to be very specific. A lot of teas make my throat tingle and hurt a lot, so I have to be careful.
--Packets that you add to water. Are these really all that healthy?
--Are there any soda-like drinks that are actually healthy?
--I like how Pepsi/Coke bites you as you drink them quickly; this is what I like.
