Live Healthy Fridays

I haven't done a post in a while, but that doesn't mean I am not still finding some interesting things to share about choosing healthier options.  I used to be a sugar addict and would drink one to two Cokes a day.  I also loathe the taste of diet sodas and am fearful of how aspartame would affect my health.  Recently I found a natural alternative called Zevia.

Zevia sodas come in a variety of flavors and are naturally flavored and naturally sweetened with Stevia which is also known as "sweet leaf".  You can read more about this product HERE.  Oprah recently featured Zevia in her magazine as part of the O List.
You can find the soda at many grocery stores including Kroger and King Sooper chains in the natural food or drink sections.  It has made a big difference for me and I have kicked my sugar addiction and have not had a Coke since September of 2010.

Thank you so much for stopping by -

You go girl! I read "Get the Sugar Out" several years ago and have given up soda, I will look for this as I miss it sometimes. I have to say that giving up sugar has been life changing, I lost 18 lbs, stopped getting headaches monthly, and my sinus infections are gone! We need to seriously look at sugar in our diets!

Never heard of this but will put it on my shopping list. I LOVE cokes but have limited them now to treats once in awhile.
