Water Alternatives

WATER ALTERNATIVES

C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

A huge number of people tell me they do not like water! I have to admit that after 6 or 8 glasses of water daily, I prefer something else. Some tasty suggestions, hot or cold:

  • Peppermint Tea
  • Spearmint Tea
  • Ginger Tea
  • Lemon Ginger Tea
  • Decaffeinated Tea
  • Gano Decaffeinated Coffee
  • Green Tea
  • Lemonade
  • Limeade
  • Mango Green Tea
  • Peach Green Tea
  • Lemon Green Tea
  • Raspberry Green Tea
  • Strawberry Green Tea
  • Lemon Grass Tea
  • Black Cherry Tea
  • Blackberry Tea
  • Cinnamon Tea
  • Clove Tea
  • Spice Tea
  • Ginseng Tea

 

MUCH less expensive and far healthier than flavored water drinks, or, UGH, pop!. You can sweeten with stevia or a minimal amount of honey. Ideally you should drink in ounces one-half your body weight in pounds. 150 pounds means 75 ounces! Coffee, pop, black tea, fruit juices and milk do not count!!
