Water is my usual choice for low carb.  Zero carbs. Tea would be my second choice.  Also zero carbs, provided it’s unsweetened. So expanding on my chai post from a few posts ago, I came up with a new option. It’s not exactly tea per se, because tea comes from the camellia sinensis plant (all […]

mighty leaf tea

I’m an advocate of whole foods and whole beverages especially when eating a low carb diet.  Which means I like to avoid artificial sweeteners and any and all forms of processed sugar.  If you shop in a normal grocery store, this can be challenging.

Q: I drink coffee with splenda and water with lemon?  Is this ok? A: When doing low carb, I don’t drink coffee usually.  I drink water and unsweetened tea (black or green or herbal).  And I do add a slice of lemon or lime to water.  Or even 2 slices 🙂 But the issue really […]

But for many Americans, coffee is synonymous with simply ‘waking up’.  Phrases like “Don’t talk […]

Sweet tea anyone?

Shockingly, I just saw how many carbs were in Hardees® sweet tea (according to their own website). And they aren’t messing around when they say ‘sweet’. There are 99g of carbs in one sweet tea (97g of that pure sugar). To give you an idea of just how much sugar that is, one teaspoon (a […]

Low Carb Beverages

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

With low carb, there are still drink choices out there and it depends on which way you want to go.  If you don’t mind artificial sweeteners, then you have a lot of options. But me personally, I just don’t like artificial sweeteners.  So that limits my choices a bit, but believe it or not, my […]
