|WORST: Lemonade |
Most store-bought versions are made from the same sweeteners used in soda, combined with preservatives and artificial color. At 100 calories per cup, and with the equivalent of 6 teaspoons of sugar and zero nutrients, you're essentially drinking liquid candy. Definitely not refreshing.
|BEST: Infused water|
Nothing beats plain water for health and hydration. But if you find plain H2O a bit blah, reach for a flavor-enhanced version. Just make sure it's made without artificial sweeteners, which can actually stoke your sweet tooth. The ingredients list should contain only water, and natural flavors. Nothing else.
