As we wave goodbye to June, it’s the perfect moment to set our sights on new aspirations and experiences. I’ll be delving deeper into my goals for the upcoming month soon, but first, a quick reflection on days 22-26 of Powercakes’ Clean Eating Challenge:
- Day 22: Quick Grab (A delightful mix of tempeh, miracle rice, and veggie stir fry)
- Day 23: Dining Out (A savory pizza evening)
- Day 24: Shared Delight (A special mint chocolate chip ice cream treat in honor of Dean’s birthday)
- Day 25: Plant-Powered Plate (Featuring amande yogurt, Love Crunch granola, and raspberries)
- Day 26: Fruity Fixation (MANGO!)
Switching gears a bit, let’s talk about jazzing up our hydration. I know some folks (yes, mom, I’m looking at you!) who find plain water uninspiring. My mother’s go-to solution? Crystal Light. Infused with this vibrant powder, she’s more likely to stay hydrated. But recently, I got acquainted with another intriguing product: MiO.
MiO offers a transformative experience for your everyday water. With flavors like berry pomegranate and mango peach, they’re hard to resist. However, there’s a catch: they use sucralose as a sweetener. Why can’t we have more natural options? Thankfully, Crystal Light introduced their ‘Pure’ variant sweetened with stevia. I’m eager to try it and hope other brands (yes, MiO, we’re hinting at you!) will prioritize natural alternatives soon.
- Have you dabbled in water enhancers?
- Any experiences with natural sugar alternatives?
