We are not asking you to forever give up boba and your other favorite drinks at Asian markets. Instead we are promoting that you be more aware of how much sugar you are consuming.
Ultimately we can all benefit from less sugar in our daily lives. Here are a few things you can do!
- Ask your favorite boba shop if they offer no-sugar, 1/4 sugar, and 1/2 sugar options. If those options don’t already exist, ask the store if they’ll start that practice.
- Find lower sugar versions of your favorite drinks at the market, and drink them in moderation.
- Drink water; it is a great, free alternative. Grab a reusable bottle and carry water with you when you can.
