That doesn’t mean anything (even if you speak Snoop Dogg). I just like the way it sounds and it’s appropriate to go with our Freebie today—a DIY bubbly maker.
The American Heart Association (AHA) has some of the strictest guidelines for the amount of added sugars (sugar, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, agave, etc) we should have in our diets because diets rich in added sugars increase risk for obesity, type II diabetes and therefore, heart disease.
[sws_pullquote_left] The AHA says women should not have more than 6 tsp of added sugars a day and men should limit sugars to no more than 12 tsp. For some perspective, a can of soda has 9 teaspoons of added sugars. [/sws_pullquote_left]
Since soda is the leading source of added sugars in the US diet, we’re always on the lookout for ways to help our readers cut back on soda.
One product that we think is perfect for doing this is SodaStream. It’s your personal fizzer, er carbonator, that turns flat beverages bubbly. You can turn tap water into fresh seltzer, 100% juice into a sparklers or wine into champagne (so to speak).
I also like that carbonating your own water means you’re not buying bottled water or other cans or bottles that need to be recycled and not as environmentally friendly. There aren’t any “empties,” to deal with. It will also save you $ when you fizz your own beverages.
One lucky reader will win a SodaStream machine today.
