When I found out Nestle Waters Canada was challenging all Canadians to take the Live Healthly. Live Bubbly. 7 Day Challenge I was totally in! All I had to do was trade one sugared beverage with Nestle Pure Life Sparkling Natural Spring Water…easy right? No. Not for me actually.
It was pretty hard at first. I love soft drinks. I always had at least 1-2 a day- 1 for lunch and 1 for dinner. I knew it wasn’t good for me and water was the better option, but I find water so plain so I don’t really like to drink it. As soon as I took on the challenge, I replaced all my soft drinks in the fridge with Nestle Pure Life Sparkling Natural Spring Water. That way when I felt like grabbing a soft drink it wasn’t there.
I am not going to lie. Half way through the 7 day challenge I really wanted a coke, but when I learned an average soft drink contains 10 teaspoons of sugar it really put things into perspective. World Health Organization suggest an adults daily sugar intake should be 6 teaspoons. I couldn’t believe everyday I was doubling that – just with soft drinks!!
All 3 flavours taste so refreshing, but my absolute favourite is the Raspberry Lime. It’s so good! I even got my husband hooked on them as well.
I am so glad I took this challenge. To this date, I haven’t had 1 soft drink. I am so proud of myself. I haven’t even been craving one either. I don’t even stock soft drinks in the house anymore. My guests now have the option of drinking Nestle Pure Life Sparkling Natural Spring Water, regular water or milk.
