GIVEAWAY: SodaStream Fountain Jet (Open to US only, ends 9/21)


Sponsored by: Soda Stream

I used to hate drinking water. Hated it. Even as a toddler I would tell my mom "I wan' pop!" when I was thirsty. I mean, who wants to drink plain, boring water when you can have the awesome, fizzy sensation of pop quench your thirst?

Unfortunately, I am prone to getting dehydrated. Even though pop can hydrate your body, there's nothing better than water. According to Mayo Clinic's website, "The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day." Surprisingly, the fact that I did not like drinking water did not change these facts.

A couple years ago I decided that I was only going to drink water with my meals in order to keep myself hydrated, healthy, and on track with my calories. Ever since making that decision I've noticed that I've felt less bloated, my skin is clearer, and I don't experience dehydration as much as I once did. There are many other reasons why you should drink more water, and you can check out some of the reasons here on webMD. 

Because I was once a water hater, I know how hard it can be to drink enough water. My brother wouldn't dream of only drinking water with his meals. SodaStream offers a solution for people like my brother by allowing you to create your own fizzy, flavored beverages from regular tap water. Although they're not AS healthy as plain water, there are options offered by SodaStream that are definitely a better choice than other fizzy, flavored beverages.

  1. We love Soda Stream!!!! We mix it with fresh squeezed lime juice and a simple sugar syrup made at home. SOOOO refreshing! No additives, just the sugar. But I justify it with the vitamin c from the lime juice. :)

    1. Sounds yummy! I can't stand additives, so I'm very happy that SodaStream offers Stevia sweetened flavors. I bet your concoction tastes even better!

  3. I would make what Karen suggested! That sounds so good! I think I'd add the Stevia Syrup I won!
