Ways To Save …. Calories

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for ways to cut a few corners when it comes to calories. Today’s calorie saver… The Cranberry Spritzer. I have been trying to eliminate soda from my diet over the last month. For the most part, this is not really that hard. Still, when I get home from work, one of my guilty pleasures is to pop open an ice cold Cherry Pepsi. It’s been a little difficult for me to give this up until I started making myself Cranberry Spritzers instead.

8 oz. Light Cranberry Juice (40 calories)
5-6 oz. Club Soda or other carbonated water
Splash of Lime Juice

This concoction is so refreshing I hardly even miss my Cherry Pepsi. And for just a fraction of the calories, I can drink as much as I want and my waist line will still thank me in the morning.

Ways to Save While Going Green – #1

Do you currently use a liquid additive in your dishwasher to help clean glass, cut grease, or prevent spots? If you do, STOP wasting your money now. Those additives cost $2-5 a pop and are doing the same things you can get by simply adding an ounce of distilled white vinegar instead. Start adding 1 oz. of vinegar to your dishwasher’s liquid compartment today and you will immediately see the difference. Squeaky clean glasses, no more greasy residue, not to mention the fact that you’re saving a few bucks and helping the environment. Go on, try it. You’ll be glad you did.
