Tiffany, Week 6: How We Got Hooked on Sparkling Water

As part of the Healthy Family Challenge, SodaStream sent us one of their soda makers and a supply of flavorings (with no sugar or sugar substitute added) to mix into the water. What a cool machine this is! Its biggest fan is our daughter, Anna. She loves making healthy “sodas” for her friends and for us after school and on the weekends.

The neighborhood favorite is the lemon/lime. It reminds them of Sprite or 7-up. I really like the mint mix in. It’s refreshing and reminds me of a Mojito with out the added calories of alcohol.

Once you learn how to use the SodaStream, it’s easy to get hooked! We drink a lot of water anyway so this makes the water even better. All the different flavors are fun to experiment with mixing and just trying flavors we’ve never had before.

The SodaStream isn’t the only freebie we got this month. Family Circle also had the kids pick out super cute water bottles from Sigg to help them consume as much water as possible. They also sent Andy and I wine glasses from WineTrax with discrete markings of 4 ounces, 6 ounces and 8 ounces. All of them will help us towards our goal of winning the challenge!
