Vitamin Water is a Rip Off

Those expensive bottles of so called Vitamin Water are a rip off. Yes, I like their convenience, but they're just as environmentally damaging as regular bottled water. (Even if you are a fanatic about recycling, some of them slip through to the landfills). Yes, they taste good. Yes, they have vitamins and minerals and are made with fruits that sound exotic and enticingly delicious.

But, you can make them yourself for much much cheaper. Simply splash 100%, no sugar added juice into your ice water. Yep, it's as simple as that.

And you've got a delicious, extremely low calorie, "Vitamin Water" without the guilt about purchasing the plastic and without the expense.

Make sure your juice is 100% and that there is no added sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, or other additives. Avoid artificial sweeteners like the plague (I think they're the source of all sorts of problems). I love to use cranberry juice.

This makes getting in all those extra glasses of water, required by Weight Watchers, much easier for me.


  1. I would love to agree with you on this one BUT my husband would be out of a job if I did!!

  2. I consider your blog as an informational one because it contain some tips to all girls that dreams to have a fit body through drinking antioxidant water.
