Alternatives to soda and coffee.
I’m going to quit drinking soda and coffee because they’re not good for my teeth or anything else in my body. So other than water, tea, and fruit/vegetable juice, what are some other options for me?? There has to be more out there… I’m not too crazy about these.

@wareagles5o, I see your point, but you’re being a hypocrite. You say we should be allowed to post what we want without criticism, then why do you criticise what he posted? You say you hate when people think they’re entitled to deem others’ ideas stupid, yet that’s what you do to Sasho. You say he should look the other way and not waste time on negativity, yet you don’t look the other way and you do waste your time on negativity.
You’re better than that. Just drop it, will ya?
(And if you can’t deal with negging people or schizoids, then an internet forum is no place for you, cuz they’re all over all of them.)
Kombucha man. I brew it myself, 3 gallons at a time. It’s bubbly, sweet, and acidic like soda but it’s damn healthy. It has B vitamins and probiotics too, and detoxes, flushes, and revitalizes your whole system.
Oter than that I like to drink spirulina, chlorella and BGA. Outrageous if you’d like your lymph system clean, your heavy metals chelated, and your brain to work at light-speed. Pretty much the healthiest, cheapest food I can think of.
If you still like coffee they sell green coffee bean extract. it’s raw and the caffeine treats your body better in its unaltered state (from what I hear, I haven’t tried it personally).
To finish off I would recommend good water. Findaspring.com is a great resource, and there are machines that will structure/clean/alkalize your H2O, though they tend on the expensive side. You might be able to find a health store that has one, or that could point you in the right direction.
@beyond, Who gives a FUCK if you think its stupid? Are you like trying to audit everyones fucking thread’s? you did this to my thread, keep your unhelpful comments to yourself none of us care to read your shitty comments, this guy was sincere on something real that alot more people than you might think care about.
RAW MILK! Tastes wonderful, super duper nutritious and healthy too. I love goat milk, it’s so fucking tasty and it’s very suitable for the human body. Can be a bit expensive though, but it’s totally worth it. Processed milk is poison, raw milk is the drink of drinks.
Yerba mate and Macha are awesome too. Energizing, full of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, tastes great. Macha can be a bit expensive, but decent quality Yerba mate is available for cheap, and they’re both totally worth it.
Mead is nice too, in moderate amounts it’s a nice health drink but in excess it’s plain bad. It’s high in sugar though, but that’s easily remedied by eating less sugar. It tastes wonderful, especially if there’s blueberries in it. Mead works wonders against bacterial infections, the honey and the alcohol kill the bacteria while the antioxidants refresh your immune defense, and the natural sugar helps your body replenish the good bacteria. Authentic mead can be tricky to get your hands on, but making your own is easy.
But best of all is good ol water. Get a proper water filtration system, and you’ve got nice, clean, fresh water that barely costs anything at all. Add a pinch of sea salt or dried spirulina to harden it just a little bit (most tap water is too soft and thus cannot be optimally utilized by the body,) and enjoy.
You should be drinking 19 glasses of water for every glass of anything else. Once you get to this point you will only crave water and you will definitely not get bored with other things. Don’t drink anything with corn syrup. Don’t drink anything with caffeine.
My two favorite that I have seen on this thread were kombucha and raw milk.
A balanced healthy diet..check out “honest food guide pyramind”…enough sleep..& big first meal of the day..& apples are said to wake you up more than coffee..I believe it I’m pregnant and had to stop drinking coffee & I switched to apples on days I was still feeling groggy and within a half an hour I felt like my day was started. Good luck! Good life choices
@brandonphillips, “So other than water, tea, and fruit/vegetable juice, what are some other options for me?? There has to be more out there… I’m not too crazy about these.”
Seriously? You are not too crazy about all the kinds of tea and fruit juice? I feel you brother. You have to be crazy or you’ll die.
What a stupid fucking thread.
@manimal, No lol no im not a hypocrite, people love to use that word when looking at a voice of reason. I only wasted my time on him this time is because it was just utterly direct and demeaning. Trying to be a voice of reason for as far as it goes. Oh yeah ive already dropped it with him I just like for my point to be seen. Just dont worry about it if you dont like it. And he did post on something I liked so i felt the need to defend it a little bit.
@brandonphillips, Damn dude! Besides water, tea, juice, soda and coffee what are you expecting? Liquid hamburger meat? I mean like…what other kind of fluids are there besides water, fruit/vegetable juice and thousands of different kinds of teas. Smoothies? Egg nog? Oh, I got it.
Vodka. Edit- which has apparently been said.
There are tons of healthy juices out there on the market competing for your attention. I really don’t see any other categories of liquid that you didn’t put down. Water would be the best of all, I love my water from my refrigerator. I actually dehydrated myself when the water wasn’t working for two days haha. It’s quite easy for me to stay away from soda and coffee since I’m a college student and there are vendors all over campus offering juice. One thing my sister, not myself, does if the juice is too sweet, is drink some of it/pour some out and then water it down a bit from the water fountain. Just a small tip if you’re watching sugar as well.
To our health! :)
@wareagles5o, No lol no you’re not a voice of reason, people love to use that word when they’re backed into a corner and can’t find a real argument to prove their point because the point is fallacious. And now you’re making up excuses too.
It wasn’t direct and demeaning, it was a fucking opinion mate. And you haven’t dropped it, since you keep trying to justify and defend your drama.
Oh, and you obviously posted on something he didn’t like too, so he probably felt the need to call it out a little bit.
You ARE being a hypocrite. Even your excuses validate your hypocrisy. Oh and let me predict your next action: calling me a hypocrite. Well technically no, because I never complained about anything or anything to that manner. But of course I am a hypocrite sometimes, that’s unavoidable, however I do not make up a bunch of excuses or deny my hypocrisy.
Because, guess what, it makes you a liar too on top of being a hypocrite. That’s not a good way to go about discussions.
Now, this has gone off topic. If you want to keep this argument up do it with the involved people through PM, because it’s got nothing to do with police stuff. However, I’m done now and won’t be wasting more time on this.
@manimal, I simply explained myself im not trying to be more than that and i can see how you would think that im backed in a corner, you simply assumed i was something I wasnt and then it turned out you were wrong. And by the way mate it was a thread i created. And you just made yourself look like a fool for trying to call what i was going to do next and then went off on a tangent about it. And you tried to end the discussion without waiting for me to reply to you. So lets not comment anymore on this :)
