Lucky Duck is drinking Zevia Zero Calorie Soda.
I’m having a soiree tomorrow at my place in Chelsea, so I went grocery shopping tonight to get the essentials.
The leading natural soda
Zevia sodas are not a typical diet soda. Zevia is, however, a zero calorie soda with no artificial sweeteners.
How is it possible? A miracle plant called Stevia. It’s small and green, from the sunflower family and originally native to South America. The stevia leaf is up to 200x sweeter than sugar but has no caloric value or effect on blood sugar levels. Find out more about the Stevia plant.
There are currently 15 tasty flavors of smarter choices and more are coming soon.
Why I enjoy Zevia soda
Once in a while, I really enjoy a soda, but soda’s tough for me, for two reasons, which Zevia completely solves.
1. Diet soda’s main ingredient, aspartame, gives me headaches. I do not get headaches when I drink Zevia.
2. Regular soda is loaded with calories and sugar. At the rate I go in New York City, in terms of attending events and parties that cater and serve an open bar, I don’t want to add all the syrup into my diet on top of everything else going on.
Zevia makes it easier to balance
As I mentioned in my Fireside Chat above, it’s important to me to keep a balance in New York City between an indulgent city life and a healthy, active lifestyle. One way that I do this is by swapping higher calorie choices for lower ones, and Zevia helps here in a big way. I also try not to “clean my plate,” as we’re all taught when we are kids. These principles are actually outlined in great detail in Louise Masano’s book, 465 Easy Eating Tips, which I reviewed a few months ago.
I know that I look about 24 (I’m kidding!), but back when I was 25, I didn’t understand how small swaps could make such a big impact. For fun, see for yourself. Here is a photo of me on my 25th birthday, and I definitely look “different” than I do today.
