June is just about OVER. Time for a new month, new goals, new challenges. I’m excited. We’ll talk more about that later. For now, here is my round up of days 22-26 of Powercakes‘ Clean Eating Challenge:
Day 22: on the go (tempeh, miracle rice, veggie stir fry)
Day 23: out to eat (pizza date night )
Day 24: meal for two (not really a meal…but a “treat” for Dean’s birthday – mint chocolate chip ice cream!)
Day 25: meatless meal (all of my meals are meatless but this was good – amande yogurt, Love Crunch granola, raspberries)
Day 26: fruit (MANGO!)
Now I want to know your thoughts on water enhancers. There are some people I know (hi, mom!) who hate water because it tastes like nothing and need to spice it up a bit in order to drink it. My mom is a Crystal Light fiend. She can probably drink gallons of water if it’s spiked with that pink powder that turns her water into a quench thirsting pink lemonade. I won’t deny that it’s good…almost as good as this new fancy item Dean introduced me to:
Who else has heard of MiO? OH MY WORD. Okay, I love water as it is. I can drink it plain, all day every day (and I usually do). But these MiO things just take water to another level. They come in so many different flavours too. So far I’ve tried berry pomegranate and mango peach (both equally delicious). You just pop the cap, squirt it into your water and voila. Problem is they’re sweetened with sucralose. Dang it. Why can’t these companies use natural sweeteners?! Crystal Light just got on board with their new product Crystal Light Pure, which is sweetened with stevia. I have yet to come across it but am curious to see what it tastes like. Maybe other companies (hint hint, MiO) will follow suit?! I hope so.
Do you use water enhancers?
Do you use any sugar substitutes/replacements?
