    Try to think of healthy and tasty options. Many things are simple to make but also nutritious: fresh cut vegetables with a dip, hummus with pita bread, cherry tomatoes (especially if you grow your own!). Drinks: don’t forget water with citrus slices, or fruit and/or vegetable juices. These can be homemade, healthy, but also tasty!

    When making lemonade from the canned frozen concentrate, using the proportions on the can it comes out tasting too sweet for me. What I do is pour the concentrate into a gallon jug and then fill it with tap water to an inch below the neck. Shake well and pour into two half gallon jugs to mmake for easier handling. I think it turns out to be a more refreshing drink and it’s cheaper!
