Place baking soda, malic acid and taurine powder in bottom of glass. Fill with chilled filtered water and watch the bubbles. Stir if you like. Now, enjoy a healthy naturally carbonated beverage. Cheers!
Occasionally I reduce the baking soda and malic acid to 1/4 teaspoon each. See how much you like for your carbonated water.
What can I say; I like carbonated water. When I make my own, I know what’s in it.
It’s a cheap way to get a FIZZ FIX.

It won’t melt away that twenty pounds excess fat you carry around with you. But not everything has to be geared to losing fat. Sometimes you just want to enjoy something for what it is without having to think about your fat.

Grapefruit works as an excellent appetite suppressant as compared to many other foods. It is said that smell of the grapefruit reduces the feeling of hunger, which is the reason why people often include grapefruits in their weight loss programs. The high amounts of fiber in these fruits can also satisfy hunger, help people avoid overeating, and stimulate cholecystokinin to be released, a hormone that regulates digestive juices and acts as a hunger suppressant….
Rarely do I put ice into a smoothie. I don’t like the freeze on my throat and my blender doesn’t do ice well. So a shake it is. And a good one at that. I always did like milk shakes, till McDonald’s changed the landscape with their impossible to draw through a straw shakes that were more like soft-serve ice-cream in a drinking cup. How dare they!!
New breakfast and lunch regimen: After drinking a 12 oz. glass of filtered water taken with a capsule of red cayenne pepper for pain control upon rising (I think the capsaicin is helping to a degree so I keep on it) I make a milkshake. Today it is spicy so I’m thinking I’ll stick with this version for a period of time till it bores me, while subbing in various plant milks for variety. Give it a try; you might like it too.
Banana, cilantro and carrot juice blended till smooth with turmeric and low calorie almond milk! Sprinkled with nutmeg. Mild, pleasant flavors that make the throat feel good first off in the morning! It’s going to be a good day! I’m going to make it that way! Not much fat in this smoothie!
Let’s face it. Starbuck’s coffee is expensive. Especially when you want the specialty stuff. Well, Steve found a way around eliminating the dairy cream so he didn’t miss it, trimming down the size and cost, plus increasing flavor. This is it.
Or should I say this is how you order it. Although it’s in a short/small cup, it’s called:
Tall dark roast with steamed almond milk topper.
He then takes it to the bar and adds 1 packet of sugar-in-the-raw, plus sprinkles of dark chocolate powder, cinnamon and vanilla powder.
The last time we went to Target’s, which has a Starbuck’s inside, he invited me for one of his coffees. Very good. Just my style. Perfect fit.
If you juice, then watermelon and/or cucumber are good choices, especially when the melons or cukes aren’t in the greatest shape – off-season.
Although sometimes I’ll juice carrots if I find a good bulk price, usually I let Bolthouse Farms brand do the juicing for me. I prefer to juice items that produce a lot of juice, since I don’t find any use for the pulp that I would enjoy. If I’m going to use the pulp, then I might as well eat the whole carrot.
Okay, so I ask a bartender what she eats to stay slim. I said, ‘now don’t say pizza because I know you don’t eat pizza’. She agreed. I was looking for a tip from a slim person. After all, they must be doing something right.
She drinks a lot of water, and instead of the costly flavored mineral waters, she makes cucumber water.
Any cukes will do, just clean them well, peel or don’t peel, or partially peel and slice them or chunk them. Put them into a large container – I used glass. Then cover with filtered water to the top. Screw on lid and refrigerate.
She said it tastes more refreshing than bottled water and there are no calories, plus the cost is low. I tried it and I agree. It is refreshing. Buy only really fresh, firm cukes. I replaced the water several times before deciding to eat the cucumber slices and starting the process over again.
