The hot season has finally arrived here in Wisconsin! One of my favorite things to do in summer is to sit outside in the sunshine with a good book and refreshing beverage. Lately, I’ve been reaching for a sweet, bubbly Zevia® Zero Calorie Soda. I know what you’re thinking… a Dietitian drinking SODA?! Well, let me tell you why Zevia® is well deserving of the Top Pick title! Zevia® All Natural, Zero Calorie Soda is a smarter soda. It’s naturally sweetened with a unique blend of Stevia, Monk Fruit and Erythritol, a natural component of fruits, vegetables and grains. What I also love about Zevia® is that it comes in 15 classic and delicious flavors, like Cola, Ginger Ale, Black Cherry, Ginger Root Beer, Cream Soda and Dr. Zevia. Not only do these fabulous flavors taste great on their own, but they also can be used to make floats, cocktails or mocktails, dishes and desserts. Leah is sharing a Ginger Root Beer Float recipe on the Eat Well Wednesday blog this week. Can you say amazing?! To top it off, Zevia® is on sale this week in our grilling themed Eat Well ad! Look for 6-packs of 12 oz. Zevia® Soda cans in our Natural/Organic departments at Festival. And, even better yet, Text 2 Win a $350 Prize Pack including a $200 Festival Foods Gift Card, 1 BBQ Grill and 2 cases of Zevia® Zero Calorie Soda!
