Carbonated water?
Thank you for your input everyone Smile.

Carbonated water?
Random question: Do you count carbonated water (ie Perrier) towards your water goal? It has the same carbonic acid issue as soda but it's just water... so I don't know.

New Vegetable to Try
I love beets! A fresh roasted beet sliced with a little butter... incredible. Of course borsch is my favorite use of them.

Try jicama in a salad. It's so crisp and refreshing Smile.

Greek yogurt is a staple in my diet too, especially since these super high protein versions came out. Homemade greek yogurt is made by straining out some of the whey, resulting in a thicker, creamier product for no more fat. If you read the labels on "traditional" greek yogurt products, you'll find it reflects that (6g of protein per serving, no fat). The little greek yogurt cups have concentrated whey added back in to boost protein (15-20 g per serving).

Which is hardly natural... but highly nutritious Smile.

Sugar Free vs. Fat Free
I tend to be a little anti fake food. I take coffee with actual milk and real sugar. I refuse to use most artificial sweeteners, but regularly use stevia. I tend to miss fat more than sugar, so in an ideal world I would say I'd choose the sugar free version, but really I'd just opt out.
