When I decided to try to change my diet to be more clean and healthy. I thought I would just cook more meals on my own. Buy more natural foods, and really just try to avoid all those yucky chemical additives that are in a lot of processed foods. It seemed simple enough. And, in a lot of ways it has been easy, but in other ways I've failed miserably!
There are just so many things that I didn't plan for; things that I really like that can't just be made on my own.
Like, gum...I can't just go whip up a batch of gum in the kitchen!
But, I like gum! I like chewing it after a meal because it freshens my breath. I like chewing it in the middle of the day because it helps keep me from snacking. And, chewing gum is just fun!
Did you know that chewing gum actually burns calories? It does! It burns about 11 calories/per hour. Okay, so it's not a lot, but when you work a desk job like me, you need every extra calorie burn you can get!
So, when PÜR gum contacted me to try their gum, I was super excited to do so. PÜR Gum is vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, nut-free, diabetic friendly and dairy free. And, it is completely Aspartame free!Now, I can chew gum without feeling guilty about all the chemical additives!
PÜR uses Xylitol, a natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables. It's actually good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, promotes good health and has none of the negative side effects of white sugar or artificial sweeteners.
PÜR sent me all 4 flavors of their gum, peppermint, spearmint, Pomegranate-Mint, and Wintergreen. They all taste good, and I really couldn't tell that they don't have sugar in them. I could tell that it doesn't have aspartame, because it doesn't have any funny aftertaste. The gum doesn't stay soft for quite as long as some other gums, but because it is natural and doesn't have all those horrible chemicals in it; it's a trade-off I'm willing to make. My favorite flavor is the Pomegranate-mint. It has a nice mild fruit flavor with a nice clean mint. I think with all the flavors my mouth was left feeling very clean, and I like that.
PÜR gum is definitely a good option for people with dietary restrictions, or if you're like me, and you just want to put more of the right things in your body.
PÜR gum can be purchased at Amazon
