Are you trying to focus on less processed, more natural foods?
|Say hello to Truvia™, a zero-calorie natural sweetener made from the best part of the stevia plant. It’s natural. It tastes great. You can even bake with it. If happiness had a flavor, this would be it. So go ahead, indulge your deepest cravings. Proudly. In plain sight. How deliciously bold of you.|
Our family has been trying to avoid processed food items for a little while now… that includes items like “fake sugar”. My body does not process any type of sugar well and I usually do not feel physically well after consuming it. That is why I had been using “fake sugar” (0 calorie sweeteners). We had recently researched an alternative to 0 calorie sweeteners and I had my fingers crossed tightly that there was a more natural alternative.
Truvia is made from the Stevia plant… not chemistry. It is a super sweet alternative with 0 calories… hallelujah! Each packet of Truvia is equal to the sweetness of 2 teaspoons of table sugar and a teaspoon of spoonable Truvia is equal to 2 1/2 teaspoons of table sugar. It is a great alternative for people with diabetes and it is kosher certified. How incredible is that?
So we have been using Truvia for a few months now. My husband and I were the first to make the switch. It works great in coffee, sprinkled on fruit, cereal… anywhere you’d use table sugar! Our older children saw that we had been using it exclusively and wanted to know what was up. Guess what? They don’t even ask where the “table sugar” is anymore… I have had to upsize my purchases of Truvia so that they can enjoy it as well! Heck, you can even bake with it! Who needs ultra processed cane sugar or chemically altered “fake sugar”?
Definitely not our family anymore!
You can purchase Truvia at local stores like Wal-Mart, grocery stores like Price Chopper or online. Amazon has a fabulous price of $18.50 for 6 boxes of 40. If you are wanting to just try them, you can purchase a single 40ct box for $8.25 (it’s cheaper at the brick & mortar stores, but shhhhhhhhh!).
One OurKidsMom is going to win the Truvia gift pack I received (40ct box & 1 spoonable… pictured above)!
