If you’re following the low carb high fat way of life, then you’re in for a tasty treat! I thought for sure once I started this way of eating healthier that I would be giving up all desserts which is hard when you have a sweet tooth.
So I was at Costco the other day and I spotted a 24 pack of Kirkland Signature brand sparkling flavored water with zero calories, sugar and carbs (comparable to the ICE brand). It contains some vitamins, and is sweetened with Splenda, so if you’re not into that, stop reading now. The 24 pack was around $9.50 at my Costco which makes each bottle around .39. Not too bad if I do say so myself, but, I did find the ICE brand sparkling water on sale at Grocery Outlet for .50 per bottle. To me, the savings was worth getting the Kirkland Signature brand as it tastes pretty much the same anyways. BUT, any sparkling zero calorie water will do. It doesn’t have to be the ones mentioned above; it’s just what I used.
- Top a 16oz cup with ice
- Take 2 TBSP of heavy whipping cream and pour into cup
- Fill the rest with your choice of flavored sparkling water
Wa-la, it’s like heaven in your mouth! Okay, not really, but close, especially if you’ve been nothing but good with eating your veggies and meat on this low carb high fat way of eating. You could also substitute this for Diet A&W Rootbeer and have yourself a float. I prefer Diet A&W if I am going to get anything diet, because it doesn’t quite have that nasty aftertaste that I loathe.
Go ahead, give it a try!
