I’ve talked before about how tough dieting for a competition can be. One way I’ve coped with such a bland, joyless diet was to binge on Grey’s Anatomy instead of on food.
Another way is to keep flavorful but guilt-free beverages around the house. It’s nice to be able to sip on something when I’m hungry between meals or when my friends are all having beer, wine, and cocktails and I can’t. ??? I prefer something carbonated, because somehow it feels more like a treat.
My new favorite is LaCroix Cúrate sparkling water. LaCroix sent me three new flavors to try from this new line: Cantaloupe & Pink Grapefruit, Kiwi & Watermelon, and Blackberry & Cucumber.
All three flavors, just like the other sparkling waters from LaCroix are sodium-free, caffeine-free, calorie-free, and contain no artificial sweeteners. They are simply flavored with fruit oil essences. That means they are 100% Chanelle diet approved! Plus, they make me feel like a very fancy lady.
Cantaloupe and Pink Grapefruit: This flavor was my favorite and I finished off this 8-pack the fastest. The flavor is a good balance between both fruits and it was extremely refreshing.
Blackberry Cucumber: It took me a while to acquire a taste for this flavor, but now I’m hooked. It has a crisp and cool cucumber flavor, and you pick up the blackberry more in the scent than in the taste. It’s sophisticated and would make a good complement to gin in a cocktail. Hey, that’s not a bad idea…
Kiwi Watermelon: This one tastes more like watermelon than kiwi and has a delicious, summery taste. Of all the flavors, I would expect that kids would like this one the most.
I enjoyed all three flavors, and I would certainly purchase these on my own to help me get through those diet cravings.
