Default what do you drink?

As the title suggests, what do you drink?

Im thirsty, but i dont want water... i really dont. I have that lower calorie powder stuff (like crystal light, but cheaper) to add to my drinks but im getting fed up. What other options are there? for a while i was drinking coke zero vanilla - but then walmart stopped selling it, so i stopped getting "0 calorie" soda....

So what else is there?

I buy several different tea flavors and make big pitchers full of iced tea that I keep in my fridge. The flavor changes keep me from getting bored. I also keep a pitcher of various flavors of Crystal Light going all the time.

I drink mostly bottled water at work, switching to flavored stuff when I get home. I stopped drinking soda entirely about a decade ago.

1 iced coffee (plain black coffee poured over ice) first thing in the morning and then lots of water. That's it.

I occasionally add a slice of lime, lemon, or orange to my water for a little kick.

iced tea! There are so many different flavors and varieties, it is hard to get bored. Celestial seasonings black cherry berry is an awesome herbal iced tea.

I make pitchers of fruit water at home... much like those Dasani flavored waters, but much cheaper! Whenever you find fruit on sale that you like, buy a bunch of it and freeze it, and when you're ready, fill up a large pitcher full of water and drop some fruit in (you can also add Splenda, but I think the fruit alone is sweet enough). Let it sit in the fridge for at least a day or two, but the longer it sits, the fruitier it gets. My fav combo is strawberry water with a spritz of lime!

Seltzer!! When I gave up soda I still craved the fizziness. I stick to the plain seltzer and add lemon but there are tons of flavored seltzers out there with zero calories.

I also like to make pitchers of decaff green iced tea.

I am boring. I drink water 100% with the exception of 1 20oz diet coke a week.


I guess I shoulda added that I normally have 3 cups of coffee in the morning.

Water and teas.

I do keep a case of diet root beer and a case of diet coke around in case I want something carbonated, but I try not to drink it too much 'cause if I don't pay attention I can pack that stuff away quick and I don't wanna unintentionally start drinking less water.

I drink water. I keep two pitchers in my fridge so I always have cold. Our water here is pretty good so I don't filter it.

In the mornings I drink 1% milk {I don't like coffee} and sometimes in the evening I'll add some Nesquick to milk as a snack.
