Soda can be a hard habit to quit. Despite all the negative evidence stacked against it, kicking the soda habit is not an easy thing to do.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you this, but soda has an extremely high sugar content. Because of this, drinking it can lead to insulin resistance, metabolic dysfunction, and chronic inflammation in the body. Not to mention, soda literally has zero health-promoting qualities. There are no vitamins, minerals, fiber to be found in a can of this stuff. It’s also incredibly processed. It’s loaded down with a bunch of ingredients that I don’t even know how to pronounce. Because of these reasons, it’s best to avoid this stuff at all costs.
Thankfully, substitutes like this citrus spritzer can help ease the transition to a soda-free lifestyle. With sweet orange and mango, this spritzer is not lacking flavor. Add in the sparkling water, and the bubbly component is there as well. There’s nothing you can’t pronounce, no added sweetener, and the fruits are packed down with vitamins and minerals. Drink this concoction and never miss soda again!
Sweet, fruity, and fizzy, this easy to make drink will be a lifesaver when you’re craving a diet-killing soda.
