Summer heat got you down?  There's nothing like the tangy, sweet taste of lemonade.  Following is the lo-cal recipe for lemonade from my book, Eat All Day - Drink All Day, the Never-Hungry way to get slim and stay slim.
                                                 DRINK ALL DAY LEMONADE

Fill a tall glass with water, add 2-3 T. fresh lemon juice (depending on your love for tartness) and 1 packet stevia powder.  Stir it up, add ice and enjoy all you want for about 2 calories per glass.

Since, as you all know, I am unable to leave well enough alone, here are a few suggestions for additions to the basic recipe.  Choose your favorites, or combine 2 or 3.

ADD A BERRY OR TWO: Mash up some raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, etc. and stir in (mash 'em through a strainer if seeds get stuck in your teeth).

POMEGRANATE JUICE:  Stir in 2-3 ounces.  Full of polyphenols and good for you.

MANGO: Pop some fresh mango into a blender with your lemonade.  Yum

PINEAPPLE OR ORANGE JUICE:  Or both, your choice.

FRESH LIMEADE: Substitute limes for lemons.  All the above additions are equally delicious.

PARTY - PARTY!:  Finally, all of the above are super good (although not as healthy) with a shot of vodka.  Great for pool-side get-togethers, but take it easy, they might sneak up on you.
