Are you trying to cut carbs and sugar? This article outlines 5 ways that Sola products make cutting carbs and reducing sugar easy.
One of the best things that I did last year was complete a round of Whole30. If you’re not familiar, Whole30 is a 30-day commitment to eat whole foods, eliminate dairy, kick (and cut out) sugar, and eliminate grains (which ultimately cuts carbs).
During the 30 days, I noticed that my energy was high. I felt focused and lost weight. I also realized how much sugar was in nearly everything that I ate.
Since then, I’ve been on a mission to eat better and stick to many of the principles of Whole30. In this post, I outline 5 ways that you can cut carbs and kick sugar forever by incorporating Sola. Whether you’re trying to cut carbs for two weeks or kick sugar as a lifestyle, I’m sure this will be helpful for you.
What is Sola?
Sola has a line of keto-friendly and low carb products, including a sugar replacement, bread, ice cream, yogurt, granola, and nut bars. Looking at their website, Sola prides itself on ditching sugar but not flavor.
I connect with Sola’s mission because my entire purpose in creating and sharing recipes is to make things that are better for me, but still taste amazing.
I got the chance to try most of the Sola products this past week. Here are five ways that Sola can help us cut carbs and kick sugar forever!
Completely replace sugar with Sola in your morning drinks
As part of adulting, I tend to wake up with a cup of coffee or tea. Since I’m not quite a fan of black coffee or plain tea, I dress my morning drinks up with a combination of cream and sugar. Before keto, I’m almost certain that these little cups were the equivalent of at least a meal!
Since starting keto, all-natural sugar replacements (think monk fruit, stevia, and erythritol) have been my saving grace.
When I tried Sola’s sweetener, I was happy to add it to my collection. It measures just like sugar and blends well. Each teaspoon has 1g net carb, a fraction of the number of carbs in regular sugar.
Ditch regular bread and use Sola in a sandwich (or this Low Carb Stuffed French Toast)
Besides sweeteners, Sola also has a line of bread. They have three flavors: Golden (White) Wheat, Deliciously Seed, and Sweet Oat. All of the bread has 4g of net carbs or less and 80 calories or less.
Considering that I’ve had the opportunity to try lots of low-carb and keto-friendly “bread”, what impressed me most was that it actually tasted and had the texture of real bread. I was so impressed that I was inspired to use it to make Low Carb French Toast.
Have some granola in your life without the carbs and sugar
Believe it or not, one of the things that I’ve been missing while doing keto is granola. I used it as a topping on my yogurt, in homemade trail mixes, and in baking.
Sola’s granola ditches the oats and uses nuts, seeds, and soy crisps to mimic the texture and flavor or granola without the carbs. Each serving has 3g net carbs or less.
Take Sola bars with you when you’re on the go
During a long day, fruit and nut bars became my go-to way to snack. Despite their wholesome ingredients, I stopped having them because my favorite bar had 23g net carbs, including 15g of sugar (albeit all natural)!
Sola’s bars have 6g net carbs or less and only a fraction of the grams of sugar. They have pretty cool flavors like Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate, Vanilla Caramel.
My husband loveeeeed these! I could also see this as a great desk snack for the days when I’m starving at work and need something to hold me over.
Say yes to Sola Ice Cream
(and no to 1000 calorie ice cream pints)
I can’t imagine a life without ice cream! So I make sure to “make room” for some a few weekends a month. One of the ways that I have ice cream without throwing my entire week away is to have lower carb pints. Sola has 8 ice cream flavors. Each pint has less than 4g net carbs a serving!
Is Sola keto-friendly?
You all have read this before that keto is not a food but a metabolic state. This means that determining whether something is keto-friendly really depends on your body’s response.
Sola’s products cut carbs and sugars by using all natural sugar replacements and cutting grains. They are low in carbs and sugars. For me, eating Sola (and staying between 20-30g of net carbs a day) didn’t impact my ketosis.
Since keto and ketosis isn’t a one size fits all thing, you can check whether any food is keto-friendly for you by checking how it impacts your ketones and glucose.
