1. Can I say beer?

The right answer, of course, is iced coffee!

2. I loved beer. But I'm looking for ideas for myself on my diet. Iced coffee

sounds like a plan for during the daytime. Thanks

3. Unfortunately, it is still diet mt. dew or diet energy drinks.

Having trouble staying awake in the daytime, so drinking too much caffeine yet.

At least I gave up the full-sugared version earlier in the summer. Only diet now.

5. I like plain seltzer water (NOT club soda -- that has added salts)...

.
.
.
... usually (but not always) with my own added flavorings. Kroger's has a diet lemonade
powder (near the Kool-Aid and CountryTime powdered mixes) that's excellent with bubbles...
and I'm trying those new Mio flavorings -- no sugar or calories... the fruit punch is good in
many beverages. They're expensive, but powerful... so very little is needed for flavoring.
.
.
Near the hot chocolate offerings are boxes of 10 packets of instant hot cider -- regular
or diet. I get the diet and it's GREAT -- puts me in a countryfolk Fall hayride mood
immediately.
.
.
.
And that Constant Comment Green Tea that I keep harping about.

6. Honestly, coffee is the only thing that tempts me to believe in God.

Something that wonderful, that has no real health deficits and no calories? I tremble before its magnificence.

Addicted? No, not me.

8. Mugicha



Roasted barley tea is a caffeine-free, roasted-grain-based tisane made from barley, which is popular in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cuisine. It is also used as a caffeine-free coffee substitute in American cuisine. Barley water is a popular traditional soft drink in Britain.

9. Iced tea (sugary/fake sugary stuff) - but it often tastes like somebody added brandy to it.

10. I like

Gold Leaf Iced Tea, unsweetened but add lemon or lime juice and stevia (natural, no calorie sweetener). It's expensive though, so I've been making my own iced tea lately that tastes similar, which is three bag orange pekoe tea and one bag of green tea. Boil 4 cups of water, turn off heat and place tea bags in water for ten minutes. Add four cups of cold water.

I also like all kinds of seltzers, they are zero calories and zero sodium. They have a nice "bite" to them, which to me is somehow reminiscent of beer, therefore I don't miss drinking beer when I have these on hand.
