I'll meet with my coach this week for the first time. My initial meeting was with my doctor. I'm hoping Kool Aid is okay, I was a little unsure because of the acidity. But I've looked everywhere and can't find any indication it wouldn't be allowed.
It 'seems' ok, but Im sure no expert...Would love to hear what others think.

Here is the list of ingredients...

The various unsweetened Kool-Aid sugar free powdered drink mixes have virtually the same nutritional information listed on the 2-quart envelopes with only a small variance in sodium between flavors.

Isn't the lemon a no-no?? I'm worried about the juice of that so usually bypass that!

I just found the Torani sugar-free syrup (s/f raspberry and s/f strawberry)used for coffee and have lately been using a few squirts of that with decaf green tea and make it into an iced tea drink...It's been yummy! I can even have the caffeinated version in the morning at the local coffee bar! I've also put a squirt of s/f peppermint in it too! I'm having a ball with it!

These are sweetened with Splenda - so it's a bonus. Found a generic version at Sam's Club of the Caramel. The raspberry had to be purchased from the coffee shop since I couldn't find it...but I see that Amazon has 6-bottle sampler of the s/f which I would have purchased if I saw it first! BTW, I love adding the s/f caramel to my IP vanilla drink with a sprinkle of cinnamon....yummo!

Make a big pitcher of this, run yourself a hot bath and relax you will be feeling better in no time.
Makes a Pitcher-
1/2 Lemon thinly sliced
1/4 Cucumber thinly sliced- save 2 slices to place on your eyes
Ice
Water
In a large pitcher add the lemon and cucumber, then the ice and then water. Let sit in the fridge for a few minutes before serving. Pour into a large wine glass, put your feet up and relax. Once the water is down to only 1/4 full refill with water. You can do this several times, keep in the fridge.
The cucumber acts as an anti-inflammatory and the lemons boost immunity. Once you are done with your bath pop in your favorite Yoga DVD, you will be feeling back to yourself in no time.
Wuv,

I'm going to try this tonight! Thanks for reprinting the recipe. I had seen it before, but then forgot about it. Great advice. You have come a long way, baby! You are an inspiration! I'm loving this diet(most of the time)
