Coca Cola Life–Does the Green Label Say It All?

Image

Coca Cola has already released this version of its ever-popular cola beverage in Argentina, and it’s rumored to be hitting the U.S. soon. I am having trouble locating an ingredients list and straightforward nutrition info on Coca Cola Life, which immediately increases my suspicions. The marketing states that this version has fewer calories and sugar than the classic red can, due to a mixture of stevia (calorie-free sweetener) and sugar, rather than just straight HFCS.

I would love to get my hands on a little more information about the product, and I’m sure I’m not alone!

Thoughts on this stevia-sweetened treat from a company notorious for contributing to the worldwide obesity epidemic? Do I have any Argentinian readers who can shed some light on this new product?

So Begins the Positive Plight of the Dietetic Intern

So Begins the Positive Plight of the Dietetic Intern

Back on the study train. Really excited to further my career and finally fulfill one dream of becoming a Registered Dietitian. Already feeling a tad overwhelmed, but as I keep the big picture in mind, I know this is worth it. And kind of fun, to be honest! So although my postings have not been as regular as I would like, I feel that now they may become even less so, as I attempt to figure out this dietetic internship:life balance. However I am sure my blog will end up being a great place to work out some of that! Looking forward to sharing my journey with you all :).

Nice Melons!

…Thanks, they’re local.

Just picked up a mini watermelon from my local produce market. Upon arriving home, I found this sticker on it:

Melon Up!¬†allows you to enter your fruit’s assigned serial number, and see where exactly your snack was grown, thereby being able to gauge how far it traveled to get to you.

And according to this map taken directly from the website, these services are available in a number of locations across the United States, Mexico, and Central America! Hooray!
