Your New Favorite Drink: Kevita 

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Tidbit Tuesday!💫

Today I’m sharing with you my favorite⭐️ drink: Kevita!   

NOTE: I am in no❌way endorsed by Kevita. I’m just a huge fan, who is very passionate about their drink!💁

What is KevitaIt’s a Vegan sparkling probiotic drink, that has a natural carbonation that’s reminiscent of soda

So, swap your soda❌, with Kevita

  • (Soda is unhealthy, unnatural, and made up of harmful chemicals. In other words: Soda is NOT❌ a Happy Healthy Nom!)

 My favorite Kevita flavors are: 

  • Coconut, Hibiscus Berry, or Tangerine. 👈These flavors are only 5⃣ Calories! (I don’t❌ count calories, but c’mon! You can’t beat that!💁)

Kevita also comes in other flavors including, but not limited to: Strawberry Acai, Pomegranate, or Lemon Ginger that are just 1⃣0⃣-4⃣5⃣ Calories!

Check out their website for all their flavors.

Kevita is naturally sweetened with Stevia and delicious natural flavors! Kevita contains natural extracts or actually contains the fruit! 

  • (For Example: Hibiscus Berry has Organic Goji Berry Extract and Organic Raspberry!)

These drinks contains 4 live strains of probiotics, so it’s good for the bacteria in your belly, and great for your body

I buy my Kevita at Natural Grocers and Sprouts. But, check here to find a  Kevita near you!

Until next time, remember: Have your veggies and drink your Kevita too!

Plant-Based Diet and Got Gas? Here’s Your Solution!

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Tidbit Tuesday!💫

So, you’re on your 🆕 (or not so 🆕) Vegan  or Vegetarian diet! You’re happy, but here’s the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: gas, bloating, and digestive problems!😱

Don’t be embarrassed, you’re not alone! But more importantly, don’t give up🙏 on your diet because of your new found tummy troubles, because I have the solutions!👌

I’ve been Vegan🌱 since July 1, 2015, and it’s been for a month now. But, this isn’t my first Vegan rodeo!💁

I’ve turned to Veganism🌱 several times in the past, the longest time being for 2 years. Yeah, 2 whole years✨! But you’re wondering, why did I stop? Because I had horrible gas, bloating, painful stomach cramps, and well, to put it kindly, digestive problems.😰

Back then I didn’t know how to fix that, so I just stopped eating Vegan!😐

Fortunately, now I have 3 solutions to put your Vegan and Vegetarian stomachs to ease!👍

1. Take a probiotic each and every day

  • The best time to take it is in the morning
  • A probiotic will promote the healthy bacteria in your gut, and help break down your nutrient-dense Vegan food.   

2.Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with every meal

  • Digestive enzymes will help you digest all of your beans and vegetables. It will therefore help prevent uncomfortable gas and bloating.   

3. But the biggest solution? Don’t eat FrankenSoy🚫

  • This will include most of your VeganMeats” such as Boca and Morningstar, which typically contain Soy Isolate or Soy Protein Isolate.
  • FrankenSoy containing things like Soy Isolate will irritate your belly, and cause a bulk of your discomfort
  • If you find VeganMeatwithout Soy Isolate, still avoid it! These “meats” are overly processed, so they may still cause tummy troubles. Plus, being overly processed and containing unhealthy additives, they are a poor nutritional choice! After all, health and nutrition is our goal!
  • Also, remember when I said I had horrible digestive problems from my 2 year Vegan Adventure from the past? The biggest culprit was eating too much FrankenSoy‼️ 

  Just to show a few of your Proteins to pick instead❌ of FrankenSoy! 

The bottom line:

  • 👉Take a Vegan Probiotic in the morning!✔️
  • 👉Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with each and every meal!✔️
  • 👎Don’t eat FrankenSoy❌. 👉Stick with: Beans, Tofu, Tempeh, Veggies, Nuts, and Seeds👍!✔️

⭐️These are your new best friends:⭐️ 

 

    Until next time, remember: Have your veggies and eat your cookies🍪 too!
