Health Tip: Quench Your Thirst in a Healthier Way

Avoid drinks that offer little nutritional value

(HealthDay News) -- If you're thirsty for a more nutritional drink, the American Heart Association offers alternatives to sugary beverages:

  • Brew a glass of plain iced tea. Skip the sugar and use a squirt of lemon, some berries or a calorie-free sweetener.
  • Enjoy a cold glass of club soda with some sliced fruit.
  • Skip the huge mocha with whipped cream. Instead, opt for a small latte. Ask for nonfat milk, and add a sprinkle of cinnamon.
