I have been drinking Diet Coke since the late 1980’s and I drank at least two sodas per day. At the time I had no idea that any of the ingredients in it were not good for me. My mom drank it, my dad drank it so naturally I drank it. This goes to show that as parents we really are role models for our children.
The past few years I have been hearing about the dangers of aspartame. It is a chemically made sweetener used as a sugar substitute. I am not going to list out all negative things associated with aspartame, that is something you can do on your own and see for yourself.
After I did my research about the effect of aspartame I decided to take the plunge and stop drinking Diet Coke. However, I knew my body was going to not be happy with me so I searched for a substitute drink that would hopefully trick my body once I stopped drinking Diet Coke. I stumbled upon Zevia one day and decided to pick up a 6-pack of cola. That night I had a can of it with my dinner and for over a month now I haven’t had one Diet Coke and I’ve only been drinking Zevia. I also did not have any withdrawal symptoms from not drinking Diet Coke.
What is Zevia
Zevia Zero Calorie Soda is sweetened naturally with a unique blend of high purity Stevia (grown right here in the US!) and Monk Fruit. The soda comes in 15 different flavors, including Ginger Root Beer, Strawberry, Cherry Cola, and many more. The soda contains no calories, sugar or artificial sweeteners.
It almost seems to good to be true, a soda with no calories, sugar or artificial sweeteners that tastes good – but it does exist and it is called Zevia. I feel so much better about my soda choice with Zevia because I know what I am drinking tastes good and isn’t bad for my body.
What I like about Zevia
I like that I can stock my fridge with a variety of flavors and have a different flavor everyday. My favorite one to indulge in is the Ginger Root Beer, it is so tasty.
Most of the drinks are also caffeine free so I feel good letting my children enjoy the drinks as well. Their favorite flavor is a tie between Grape and Orange. A fun after school snack that my daughters love is Grilled Cheese sandwiches and a Strawberry Zevia.
If you are looking to kick the Diet Coke habit or just want to try a new soda I highly recommend picking up a 6-pack of Zevia and giving it a try. In fact, I have a coupon you could win that will get you a free 6-pack. All you need to do is enter below in the Rafflecopter box below.
