Alrighty then. This is the third year in a row that I’ve given up alcohol of any kind for Lent. Ok, please get up. You’ It’s not the end of the world, but it’s definitely challenge. I do it for myself but also for the kids. They know dad likes his beer and to give it up means something. I’m not giving up African safaris or space exploration. So, a man must subsist these days on the softer side of the beverage spectrum. ‘Tis a challenge on some of the more frustrating days, but challenge is what life is all about (or something like).

Whole Foods Italian Sparkling Moneral Water CollageOne of the best drinks I’ve had in a LONG time is Whole Food’s Italian Sparkling Mineral Water. Here’s what I think:

  1. The Italians know about food and drink, period)
  2. I generally really like flavored sparkling water/seltzer because it’s non-caloric and tends to be very refreshing (and not sweet)
  3. Mineral water can go either way but this is not too aggressive but offers a great mouthfeel that is nicely matched with the carbonation to cut it a bit…really a big point for me
  4. The strawberry flavor is actually awesome…it’s so good, it may be the best flavor (in this ilk) I’ve ever had, really

So there you have it, but I just checked WF and they only list Lemon and Lime. I’m sure these are great, too…but keep an eye out for the strawberry version too!

Pray for me.
