Giveaway: Pure Via’s stevia summer fit kit

It’s summer and it’s getting hot.  When summer hits, I suddenly become obsessed with tea and nothing else.  Do you like tea? Tomorrow is the first official day of summer, so why not spend it drinking some iced tea with some good company.

I’m usually a hot tea drinker but since it’s been so hot outside, I’ve switched the the iced variety of tea. I do love to make a big batch of green tea and put in the fridge to chill. Luckily, Pure Via sent me a variety of stevia products to try out.  I’ve been having fun mixing up my teas already.

Here’s some basic facts about Pure Via’s NATURAL stevia.

  • Pure Via’s stevia extract is 97% pure Reb A made from the sweetest extract of the stevia leaf
  • It is sweetened using all natural stevia
  • Pure Via packets contain only non-GMO* ingredients
  • Each Pure Via packet sweetens like two teaspoons of sugar
  • Pure Via is suitable for people with diabetes
  • It’s certified Kosher Parve

FYI: The liquid stevia on the go packs are not non-GMO!

I’ve enjoyed putting the vanilla Pure Via stevia in my iced tea. It adds a little something extra to my tea. It’s become a nice treat throughout the day because you’re getting that extra layer of flavor with the vanilla.

I love the liquid stevia because it’s a grab and go product.  I can take it with me and add it to my drink without having to carry around the packets.  I have been known to travel with those suckers in my purse, and I’m really upset when I forget to pack some with me. I usually use the packets in my hot beverages, but both liquid and packets can be used in hot and cold drinks!

Do you drink your calories?

Do you drink your calories?

I don’t drink my calories and when I do…it’s painful.  I would just rather eat my calories than waste them on a drink.  Most people aren’t that way.  When we decided to lose the weight, we did it cold turkey.  There was no more soda, juice, fru-fru coffee drinks or alcohol.  That was something I had to let go. It’s amazing how little a cup of juice is and how quickly you can tear through a couple of sodas before an appeterizer arrives at the table.  Just knowing that was enough to turn me off the concept. I would allow… View Post
