One of a pregnancy diet's biggest challenges has mom trying to kick her soda habit. Full calorie sodas are complete with useless calories. Diet sodas contain a cocktail of artificial sweeteners discouraged by doctors and nutritionists. This pregnancy diet idea helps mom find alternatives for soda.
Part of the soda experience is clearing a dry throat with the zing of carbonation. Carbonated waters will give the same bite without the calories. When the urge hits, pick up a Perrier, San Pellegrino or any other carbonated water brand found at the grocery.
Besides the bite of carbonation, a soda provides a pungent break from the ordinary. Squirt, Fresca, Mountain Dew and Mellow Yellow all offer this type of taste retreat. Recreate a similar taste by adding lemon or lime juice to carbonated or non-carbonated water. Choose your own dosage of fruit juice.
Use your hunkering for a soda to take in a little nutrition. Choose from the many types of carbonated fruit juices found at your finer grocery stores. These fruit juices pack a flavorful punch.
Substitutes are your best tool for breaking the soda habit. Consider making these a permanent substitute for your soda habit.
