Putting Soda on the Bench

All things in moderation is the battle cry of the well-balanced diet, but when it comes to sugary drinks, moderation looks more severe than we often realize. One way to minimize the damage we take from indulging in things like soda and fruit-flavored drinks is to swap them out with juice-based alternatives. Although juice lacks the filling fiber of fruit, it does at least offer many of the micronutrients our bodies need. When you’re putting together your party menu, use these recipes and ideas to indulge more healthfully in sugary drinks.
