You ate it. Now what?

Snaccidents happen.

Did you splurge on a treat today? Was it amazing?! Here are some handy after-splurge tips to show your body a little love.

Drink water.

Thirsty? Opt for classic H2O or an unsweetened tea, instead of a soda, cocktail, or juice. | More on why your beverage choice makes such a difference
