What do you guys drink?

Postby ssandra » January 23rd, 2011, 3:16 pm


I am a big fan of water myself, but sometimes I want a bit of variation as well.

I know coffee is semi allowed (without sugar) but I don't really like coffee that isn't extremely sweet cappuchino ;) so that is out.

Tea the same. There are no good tasting teas here in Mexico :(

For now I have as options:
Water
"agua de jamaica" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agua_de_jamaica)
water with a splash of lemon (lime? The little green ones)

What other options do you guys have?

I used to not like coffee (no cream and no sugar) or green tea, but I built up the ability to drink it. It's worth it.

Water, and sometimes water with ice for variety... ;^)
I have been adding some fresh lemon juice to the water, and I'll have to try the balsamic vinigar! I do drink tea or coffee now every day for the caffeine, and have dot of fresh cream (if we have it) and some fresh grated cinnamon, which is helping me get over it not being sweet.
Have had a half glass of red, dry, wine some evenings.

I think anything light is best avoided, but if you really want to, to have no more then 500ml a day. At least, that is what Tim says about Diet Coke, so I assume that goes for every type of diet drink.
