I used to drink sodas almost every day and never gave any thought to sugar, high fructose corn syrup, or calories (what are those?). After a while, I changed to diet sodas that used splenda or things like aspartame, but those wreaked havoc on my stomach. So I had given up drinking soda and just had water, tea, black coffee; it's really not that bad or hard to do.
But then Zevia comes on the scene and offers their awesome all natural, zero calorie soda sweetened with stevia. I know other brands have similar drinks, but Zevia just seems to have it down. Besides their delicious, high quality line of drinks, the people working at Zevia know how to treat their current and future consumers with respect. Great customer service means a lot, and Zevia has it right in that department too.
In June of last year, Zevia sent me samples to review (click here for review post) and I held a giveaway contest too. Since then, I've posted a few recipes using Zevia like this protein corn bread and these pumpkin protein donuts. Now, Zevia sent me their newest flavors (Strawberry, Cherry Cola, and Lemon Lime) to review and host another giveaway. I'm still working on the samples, but have been able to cook a few goodies using the tasty soda.
Come back soon for the review and giveaway for a free 6 pack coupon. I don't have full recipes yet, but I used Strawberry Zevia as the liquid to cook a big batch of quinoa that I have in the fridge for a quick nighttime treat. This was so easy; all you you need is your favorite flavor and any grain you would cook on the stove. Zevia is also a great liquid to use to make overnight oats; it's your liquid and sweetener with zero calories!
If you can't tell, I'm pretty excited to have this opportunity to try the new flavors, and so far, I love the Strawberry and Cherry Cola. I'm thinking a good baking recipe with the Cherry Cola and hope to have one finished soon.
Well, how about we kick this What I Ate Wednesday off and have a look at my day of eats....Happy WIAW!!!
