Healthier Alternative to Crystal Light
I put up a video last week with tips for getting in your daily water intake.

Another tip that I didn’t include in the video is to flavor your water.

For those of you who love Crystal Light, I would encourage you to consider switching to True Lemon or True Lemonade. It doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners and tastes just as good as Crystal Light. Most of the time I just add a little bit of lemon juice to my water, but on days that I want something a little sweeter I use some True Lemon. You can find it right by the Crystal Light packets at any grocery store (I have gotten it at Walmart, Wegman’s, Safeway, etc.  You can also order from  or directly through the True Lemon website). I really like the raspberry lemonade flavor.  I also have added this to my homemade protein bars before (click here for that easy recipe) and it tastes great.  I also feel comfortable giving this to my kids on occasion in place of juice.
