say what?

So, I realized that I've been drinking too much coffee and not enough water. Not really a great thing for my body, or my level of jittery-anxiousness. When I was at the grocery store last week, they had a sale on some new flavoured water stuff. The kind where you add the little packet to your water. In fact, they had a new flavour! Raspberry Peach. Those of you who know me, know how excited this would make me! So I snatched it up.

When I got home I read the package more closely, not only is my water now yummy Raspberry, but it contains both prebiotics, and 3grams of fibre. Excessive much? I mean, it's my water! Everything I buy now has something added to it. Bah. I mean, I'll agree, I could probably use all the good bacteria I can get considering the number of times a day I use hand sanitizer at work, but still. And seriously, making fibre your friend is a definite good thing. But wow. I just can't get over the way food is made these days.

Oh, and did I mention my beverage is BRIGHT RED? Yes, because after we add all this healthy stuff, somehow we still feel the need to add a whole bunch of red food dye. Bah. I love the idea of flavoured water. It tastes good, and I enjoy drinking it. But honestly, I would drink it no matter what colour it was. Stop dying my water!
