I grew up on frozen concentrated juice, typically store brand oj or if we were lucky and it was on sale "5-alive" (like a fruit punch), 2% milk (sometimes we'd add Quick chocloate to make chocolate milk) and tap water. Soda was a treat, for parties and if we went out to dinner (very rare).
I was a big drinker in my 20's, loved to party! I drink about
once week now (5-6 drinks) or maybe not at all or maybe one a week......all depends. Thank goodness, drinking has never affected my UC. At least I can enjoy a flipping cocktail!
For soda now I prefer diet canada dry gingerale. I buy a 2 liter a week. Sometimes a diet coke or pepsi.......I try not to have caffeine while flaring.
