That’s right. SodaStream has gifted us with a few of their amazing fizzy drink machines ($150 value each)! The Genesis machine features a sleeker, more modern design that I just love. Three lucky Appetite for Health readers will win—will it be you? See below for entry information.
Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those people who tends to run on the dehydrated side of life—it’s something I’ve been working on for years. I like water, but not enough to get the amount I really need. I also adore carbonated beverages, but gave up sweet sodas years ago (soda is still the leading source of added sugar in the US diet, don’t cha know?). I also eliminated the diet soda that was my compromise drink, all in an effort to train myself to drink more water. It worked, but I still missed the bubbles.
The SodaStream machine is the cure for my dehydration ills. These machines make it soooo easy to create exactly the bubbly beverage you want by combining juice, tap water, the SodaStream flavorings that are available (there are over 50 flavors!)—really, whatever you want to combine to make your drink of choice. (Julie has even used hers to create white wine spritzers for parties!)
Using a SodaStream means your drink is completely customizable! They’re also a great tool to help you cut calories. First, with them, you probably won’t drink as much regular soda and I find that if I want an “adult” beverage, I can dilute the calories by adding some fizzy water to it. I also cut all of my orange juice with fizzy water too so that I’m constantly diluting my liquid calories. It’s a really, really good tool to help you reduce calories in your diet–and your family’s as well.
Plus, no more buying plastic bottles of water or soda—saving money and the planet at the same time, Yay!
The SodaStream machine requires no electricity and there’s really no clean-up whatsoever. Plus, it’s relatively small at 5′ wide, 17″ high and 8.5″ deep. Even in a small kitchen, there’s plenty of space for it. What’s not to like, right?
