One of my best friends... my SodaStreamer, what an excellent invention! I love sparkling water, and I think it's the next best thing to have with dinner,taste wise, red wine comes first of course :)

I usually make a big bottles, and over carbonate it so that it is super bubbly, then take some frozen berries from the freezer and add a dash of lemon juice -Yum!

Very often we forget how unhealthy the drinks we have can be, and only look to what we eat. Juice for example, has an undeserved reputation of being super healthy and full of vitamins, which is not true at all. Well, it might be full of vitamins, but no vitamins that you won't get from eating meat, eggs, fish and vegetables, and it is definitely not healthy when you see how much sugar it contains.

Just to give you an idea of how much sugar some drinks contain, see below:

Orange juice, 10,6 g gcarbohydrates/dl - Usually you'd drink a lot more than 1 dl
Coca cola:  36,4 g carbohydrates/33 cl can
Full fat milk 3%  4,8 g carbohydrates/dl
Red wine 0,8 g carbohydrates/dl
Water 0 g carbs :)

Not as shocking as this though:

Frosties cereal 87,5 g carbs per 100 g - almost only sugar!!
