I never thought I’d be so full from just a salad.
In fact, last night, I made fun of someone for being full from just a salad.
After rolling myself home from a scrumptious, fun, and well, fibrous dinner at Live Food Bar, I wanted something to settle my stomach a little: I had a hankering for a ginger ale… One without sugar. Or ale.
Tongue, meet stevia. Mmmm. Sweet, refreshing success. Stevia is great because it doesn’t spike your blood sugar and send you into some foggy-headed, sugary abyss. Plus it has no calories, and contains no sugar. So far, so good.
Ginger is nice and soothing for an upset stomach. I have a hankering that’s why they serve it at all-you-can-eat sushi joints..
(sugar-free, everything else-free)
A few sprigs of mint
A thumb of grated ginger (I usually just grate and freeze little bits of it)
Juice of one lime
A few drops of stevia, to taste
Like you’re making a mojito, muddle the mint, ginger, lime, and stevia. Squish ’em up real nice. Pour in your sparkling water, and let it soak up the flavours. Stir. Strain into a glass with a few ice cubes, and slurp up the refreshment!
Last time I make fun of someone for eating a salad. Sorry, Reens. 😛
Oh, and remember my little soup dilemna? Problem solved overnight—and I didn’t have to put in any effort. That’s just what soup does. So thanks for having my back, soup.
