    Sugar Free Limeade

    Sugar Free Limeade

    One of my favorite drinks during the summer months, especially when it’s hot, is limeade or lemonade. Making it with the sweetener, Truvia, tastes better than I thought it would. Also, making limeade with real limes gives you that extra vitamin C with antioxidants plus the water we need every day. Most people buy the dry artificial lemonade that has a lot of additives with artificial flavors in them that can be harmful to your health, as well as your children’s health..

    Making real limeade with real limes is better for you and your children. It tastes better than the artificial kind plus it gives you that refreshing taste as well. I especially enjoy drinking limeade after taking an hour walk because it refreshes my thirst. When I was a kid, my mother used to make lemonade with fresh lemons with lots of sugar added to it to give it that sweet taste.

    Today, we don’t want to spend the time and money on limes or lemons instead, we would rather buy the dry artificial kind of stuff that doesn’t have nutritional value and has additives to it because lemons or limes are more expensive and it takes more of our time to make lemonade or limeade.

    In my opinion, I would rather spend more money on real limes or lemons for health reasons. Also, lemons and limes have a lot of vitamin C that helps to protect against colds and the flu. It helps keep you hydrated and refreshed too. Making an investment in our health and our children’s health as well, will help fight against diseases as we get older, so taking the time to make real limeade is worth the time and money.
