Recently I had a little scare that could have easily turned out to be Diabetes.  Turns out, it was my crazy thyroid acting in no way it was supposed to again.  But in the testing and speculation, I started thinking of ways that I would have to change my diet if I were, in fact, diabetic!  In the process, I could not fathom giving up the sweetener in my morning coffee, my sugar on my grapefruit or my oh so sweet chocolate desserts!   But I knew that this should be a wake up call so then and there I decided to see what else was out there that would allow me to have the sweetness I love in dishes but not the sugar!

Lucky for me, the wonderful people at NuNaturals had chosen just that time to send me some of their line of 100% natural sweeteners and cooking products.  NuNatural NuStevia products do not contain any Aspartame, Saccharin, Sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, Sugar or any kind of artificial sweeteners or colors!  Amazing, right?  And they have zero calories!  Basically, the perfect “sweetener” for anyone one trying to control their sugars, create healthier recipes for their family and taking an active roll in being healthier themselves!

I’ll admit, I was a little nervous.  I was not sure how to use the NuNaturals products!  Thank goodness they also sent me a conversion chart and a ton of new recipes!

First things first.  What did I use sweeteners in that I could switch out?  My morning coffee came right to mind.  Every morning, I put at least 4 packets of other artificial sweetening packets in my coffee.  So, starting immediately, I switched to the NuNaturals NuStevia packets. Knowing that the NuNatural products contained 60% more natural stevia than other products, I started with just one packet in my coffee.  It instantly dissolved, unlike some others and sweetened my coffee perfectly.  With 1/4 of the normal product I would use! Making this economical as well!

Next I leafed through recipe after recipe of fantastic desserts, marinades, breakfasts and more that I received.  I am not a “recipe creator” but I can take a recipe and make it fit with what I already have on hand!   And since we do not have a “health food market” out here for specialty ingredients, I wanted to see if I could make some meals healthier and still delicious with NuStevia products!

My first attempt was a recipe for Healthy & Hearty French Toast!  I am a French Toast junkie so to make this healthier would be GREAT!!  This recipe uses the NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia Liquid in place of the sugar I usually use to make my toast a little “sweeter”.  All I did was add the liquid drops to the egg whites.  Can I tell you guys, my friend Donna was here to help me cook and even she said that “It was the best French Toast” she had ever had!

The perfect blend of the hearty whole grain bread with the sweetness of the NuStevia brought out the natural flavors and sweetness of the bananas I put on mine!  It was DEVINE and I loved that I knew that it was healthier for me and my family!  We make this recipe at least once a week now!

The next surprisingly good recipe I made was Carrot Cake Mini Muffins.  My daughter Sarah needed some sweets for her Thanksgiving Feast at school so I thought, what a better reason to try this – oh so yummy – looking recipe?  True to Lori form, I did not have all of the ingredients I needed – like the Ener-G Egg replacer.  So I used an egg white.  And I did not have enough regular applesauce so I used cinnamon.  These were super easy to make, super moist and as sweet as you would expect a dessert muffin to be! Sooo good!

Through out the weeks of having the NuNaturals NuStevia Products – including the Cocoa Bean Extract for chocolate recipes, the NuStevia quick dissolve tabs (also great for coffees and teas), The MoreFiber Stevia Baking Blend, the NuNaturals packets and other great items – I have been trying to use them to get a little more healthy and a little less sugar into our diets!

I have to say, I am very impressed with the entire line!  I use a fraction of this all natural product compared to what I use to use with traditional sugars.  And the powders are so fine that they blend easily.  The drops are perfect because they are instant gratification, easy to use and easy to store!  I really am excited to keep using them and see how else I can implement then in my every day cooking!  Especially with the holidays coming!!  

And if you have a guest coming that is diabetic or need to have meals that are Gluten Free then NuStevia products are perfect to cook with! You get the same great flavors and sweetness without sacrificing your health!
