    ya i just got a cool blue gatorade which taste pretty good. i thought that people with lupus can't drink that much gatorade lol. i dont want to end up with diabetes 2 at an early age because of just drinking gatorade. my rhuemy suggested that i should drink like cranberry juice because it cleans my system.

    cranberry juice is VERY good for you. Unless you are on a medicine that it doesn't mix well with, like Cumiden, or if it has hgh fructose corn syrup. I like to mix a splash with seltzer and twist of lime. There is also a sugar free gatorade-like drink (i forget the name of) if you are worried about your BGL but I don't like it b/c it has a funny aspertame taste to me. Cyrstal Light is sugar free and yummy! I particularly like the raspberry iced tea.
    As long as this body works, I am going to enjoy life to the fullest for each second of every moment that I can.

    I've never tried Fresca. Can we get it in the south? I don't think I've ever seen any to buy. lol. I'd like to try that. I LOVE the taste of grapefruit but often can't tolerate it on the GI tract for some reason.

    Micromedic...I love the Vitamin waters too... I love the XXX version with all the antioxidants in it. It's my favorite!

    My daughter has a ton of recipes for fruit smoothies and fruit drinks mixes that are so good. She made this one for me once with strawberries blended in it that was so SO good. Hmm. I wonder if she still has that recipe.

    This thread is making me thristy! lol. I'm glad this was brought up...good discussion!

    When i'm thirsty I drink squash (cordial) like blackcurrant usually. I tend to avoid soft drinks cus they make my stomach hurt, and the tap water heres not too great, so it's a good option

    Yes, the G2 is really good, and I also water it down to take away some sweetness.

    I agree with the Gatorade, and I also drink a lot of organic tart cherry juice. It tastes good, and it seems to help my joint & muscle pain.
    Love...faith...joy...hope...strength...

    Another green drink for those who can have an alcoholic drink is a grasshopper.
