What's In It Wednesday

THE BIG REVEAL. This is what you would be drinking if you bought this product and you may want to “lighten up” your sipping on this.

What's In It Wednesday

Natural?  Hmmmm. W HA T ?


1. Fresh water with fresh lemon , lime and orange slices (soaked overnite)  – So pretty! 

2. Water with 2 cup frozen mixed tropical fruit – frozen fruit acts like ice!

3. Water with sliced cucumbers- detoxifyingly delish!

**If you want sweet, add 1 tbsp raw honey or stevia to taste

**If you want sizzling use sparkling water


Just because it’s in a box, on a shelf, in a grocery store, does NOT make it fit to eat.

  1. What an eye opener!! I used to drink Crystal Light up until 2 years ago. I just naturally stopped and started drinking more water instead.

    I have always liked lemon in my water but now I add it to the water I take in my travel cup. Trader Joe’s turned me on to cucumber in my water a few years ago.

    After your suggestions, I will make some in my frig the night before. I am looking forward to starting my day with a chilled ‘good for you’ drink ! !

    Thanks, Rosie

  2. I KNEW it was some sort of lemonade that was sugar free. YUCK! I truly can’t imagine why anyone would even WANT to drink such a thing. The label reveals all sorts of disgusting ingredients, and why? Why does there need to be all that in there? Personally, I love drinking water with lemon squeezed in, no sweetener at all. Very refreshing. But I like your suggestions for other options, too, Rosie. Thanks! 🙂

  3. That is just crazy! Thanks for the reveal…I knew it had to be something sweet but soy? Why after all those crazy chemicals there is soy in there?
