The most economical beverage just happens to be the best one for you—tap water. Filtering systems and reusable water bottles help keep costs in line and are great for the environment. If you’d like a little flavor in your water:
- Infuse tap water with fresh fruits and vegetables for a subtle flavor. Keep a pitcher in your refrigerator to encourage consumption.
- Make your own Kool-Aid buy purchasing unsweetened packages and then adding your own calorie-free sweetener to taste. You can make your own popsicles this way too.
- Use bagged tea to make your own iced tea. Add your own calorie-free sweetener to taste.
- Refrigerate leftover coffee and use for iced coffee drinks. You can also freeze in ice cube trays for frozen concoctions.
Now you’re ready to put your grocery store game plan in place. It is well worth the time and effort to make sure you have the right foods for you and your family.
