NuNaturals Giveaway

     I'm a big fan of stevia. Artificial sweeteners are suspect in my book! I'm not comfortable using something "new" that they might discover has many side effects. Stevia has been used for a very long time. It's an herb. I even grow it.
     It seems pathetic that someone who runs a greenhouse would have a three year old plant that looks like this. It didn't always look like this. It had help.
"Na-na-na-na. I can't hear you.
"Look lady, you can have the catnip and I'll just 
keep eating that yummy plant called stevia.
What's a guy to do when he has a sweet tooth?"

     Okay, there you have it. The stevia thief. At one time  the plant was large and beautiful. I picked the leaves and dried them. They are still dried in a large jar. The cat might as well have eaten them, because I like my little packets of stevia.
     
     Every Wednesday I host a Weight Loss meme for folks who want to have company on the journey of losing weight, maintaining weight, or just eating healthy. I have used stevia for several years so I can cut back on sugar. I love it. My favorite brand is NuNaturals. My favorite products are the small packets and the liquid stevia. I have recently discovered Vanilla Stevia. It's alcohol free and isn't bitter. I use it in some teas and I love it in plain yogurt.
