drink kombucha instead of soda!
mmmmmmm, i am addicted to kombucha. when i was pg with ds and worked at the co-op, i bought it by the case and drank 1-3 of them everyday.
now i make my own and save about $100+/month.
here's a GREAT recipe for the double fermentation method, so you can have that yummy fruit juice flavor that the synnergy organic raw kombucha has. kombucha recipe
oh, and jmo about soda: natural soda is definitely way better than regular, but if i was dying on a desert island and had only reg and diet soda to drink, i would never, EVER touch the diet! the fake sugar is really, really bad for you. also, most people who are drinking diet soda with the thinking that they won't get fat from it, are dead WRONG. the sweet taste of diet tricks your body into thinking it's real sugar, and so not only are you not dong yourself any favors calorie-wise by drinking diet, you are loading your body with some deadly chemicals.
