So you've decided to cut back on sugar. You've started cooking lower-sugar meals, eating less dessert and making a conscious effort to check out the amount of sugar in the foods you're eating.
All steps in the right direction, but what about the sugar in the beverages you're drinking? Turns out, water isn't the only zero-sugar sip out there. There's another zero-sugar option for when you're in the mood for something tastier: Zevia Creamy Root Beer.
