Nestlé Waters Canada is Challenging Canadians

Néstle Waters Canada has a commitment to helping families live healthier lives. They are currently challenging Canadians to swap one sugared beverage for a Néstle Pure Life Sparkling Natural Spring Water. They have some great tasting flavors that are better for you than having a can of pop. These drinks help reduce your sugar intake. If you are like me, a diabetic, that is what you look for in a beverage. 
Did you know, moms consume on average three to four soft drinks a week? With the average soft drink containing more than 10 teaspoons of sugar per drink, whereas orange juice in the same 355ml format only contains 8 teaspoons of sugar. As moms, we should be looking for healthier options. It benefits our bodies and minds.
Staying properly hydrated is important for us to function normally. Sugar is not great for hydration. Water is the best source for getting hydrated. 


LIVE HEALTHY. LIVE BUBBLY.


They have provided me with some great drink recipes to share with you. I can't wait to try them myself!

I urge you to take the 7 Day Challenge and kick-start your efforts to reduce your sugar intake. I plan on taking the challenge too! 





Here are some tips on food cravings and how to curb them, as well as staying healthy at a desk. Which if you're a blogger like me, this is beneficial information. I spend most of my time in an office chair, and plan to implement these tools to stay healthier longer.

  1. I love that Nestle Canada is encouraging Canadians to take the challenge! We have avoided high sugary drinks (especially sodas) for years now, but I wish more people would. Makes a huge difference on your health :) I'll have to check out these Nestle Pure Life beverages!

  2. Sounds good to me, I used to drink way too much soda pop. I have only one a day now if that. This looks like an interesting alternative. Thanks for sharing!

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
