We are well into February now. I know a lot of people’s New Year’s resolutions included things like healthier eating, losing weight and being healthier from a holistic perspective. And I know that by this time of the year, a lot of people have fallen off the wagon (or just decided to take a flying leap) for healthy living.
Let me introduce you to something that may make you jump back on the wagon.
NuNaturals Stevia is a great way to get back on to the healthy living wagon.
NuNaturals is a liquid stevia blend (they also have powder packets) that is non bitter, disolves well in cold beverages, mixes beautifully in yogurt and can be used where ever you would want to add a bit of sweetness. The liquid stevia is all alcohol free and even comes in orange, lemon, peppermint, vanilla and even chocolate along with unflavored. They also sell baking blend stevia, stevia packets, and a prebiotic blend.
Stevia is much, much, much sweeter than regular sugar. In fact, you only use about an eighth of stevia versus sugar to get the same amount of sweetness. So while the initial cost of NuNaturals may seem steep at first, you use so little at a time that the price is comparable.
Stevia also doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar, so those who have conditions where it is advised to avoid eating sweets and carbohydrates that do raise the blood sugar can use stevia safely in place of sugar.
I received the orange, lemon, vanilla, peppermint and regular liquid from NuNaturals along with their stevia packets and a container of their prebiotic blend. The prebiotic blend works great when adding it to plain yogurt, cookies, anyplace where you would use sugar (unless the amount of sugar called for is to also help increase the bulk of what you are making. If you substitute, you could end up with a bit less of what you are making).
My husband liked adding the peppermint liquid stevia to his bottle of water that he takes to work. Peppermint works as a nice natural stimulant and it helped to keep his mind clear as he stared at a computer screen all day (he works in IT…) He also is a fan of orange cream, so a large glass of water mixed with a few drops of the orange and vanilla liquid blends made an orange cream flavored drink for him whenever he wanted it.
I added the peppermint to homemade hot chocolate. It felt so decadent drinking it on the cold morning I first made it.
The packets are terrific for stashing in your purse or the glove box of your car to add to tea while you are out and about. I’ve noticed recently that the sweet tea at a lot of places is just too sweet tasting any more for me, but I like my tea with some sweet to it, so if I get the unsweetened, I can add the NuNaturals stevia packet to it and make it taste just the way I want it to. And they are great in making chia seed pudding! (soak chia seeds in milk, add some cocoa powder and stevia to taste. I love it)
