As many of you know I have one of the worst cases of hypoglycemia on the planet – no I’m not kidding. My specialist said it is one of the worst cases he has seen in his career.
I have had to give up many things that people take for granted because so many foods either contain sugar or turn into sugar after we digest them.
I’m Italian and I grew up from the time I was an infant eating pasts and bread, that for me was the most difficult thing to give up and I struggle with it each day.
I was not a huge soda drinker but I do enjoy a cola or ginger ale from time to time. The worst part was not having something to drink when I was sick that didn’t contain those NASTY artificial sweeteners. I hate that stuff and it is so dangerous to the human body which has been confirmed through research.
I found a product called Stevia about 7 years ago though a support group and have been using it ever since. Stevia (under many brand names now) has made a huge impact on the market within the past 2 years. I was hoping that some company would start to incorporate the product into things like candy, soda, and snacks so that I could once again have treats that were safe for me to eat and not affect my sugar.
Until recently no one had decided to develop a soda that contained Stevia until the people at Zevia saw a need for this product and I couldn’t be happier.
In 2007, amidst the rainy backdrop of Seattle, Zevia Zero Calorie Soda was born. Sharing their stevia sweetened Cola, Lemon Lime Twist and Orange soda. People were craving a smarter soda!
2011 brought five new flavors and some major growth. Word of smarter soda spread with the launch of five great tasting flavors like Cream Soda, Grapefruit Citrus & Caffeine Free Cola. Jaws dropped when they created the first diet Grape Soda and all natural Mountain Zevia, a mainstream favorite. They are all so delicious.
Today there are 15 flavors of Zevia to choose. I personally purchase it at Whole Foods Markets but you can check the Zevia website (click here) to see who carries it in your area or if you cannot find it in your area it is available for purchase through Amazon (Amazon-click here)
You can also sign up for some money saving coupons at the website.
The great folks at Zevia have offered to give away a case of their product (24 cans) to one lucky Rosey The Coupon Coach follower. There are many ways to earn extra entries (see below).
Good luck to all!
