NuNaturals Stevia Giveaway!

I am a huge fan of stevia. I have tried almost every brand out there and I can honestly say that NuNaturals is the best. Most other brands have a bitter aftertaste or just taste a lil’ funky. NuNaturals is also the only brand I have been able to easily bake with. Their Baking Blend can be used in the same amounts as sugar, so you don’t have to do any crazy conversions or substitutions.

Why not just use sugar? Because the body doesn’t need it! Yes, it is true that our brains can only use glucose, but that is what carbohydrates (fruit, veg, rice, bread, etc) are made of. Straight up refined sugar is not nutritionally necessary and can have many negative effects on the body, like raising blood sugar, spiking insulin, causing insulin resistance, obesity, and diabetes. Furthermore, your cells can convert dietary protein (and lactate, pyruvate, and the glycerol backbone of fat) to glucose, which is why you don’t die on Atkins.

Stevia can be found in my recipes for raw blueberry cheesecake, nutty bars, skinny margaritas, yogurt pops, blackberry pecan muffins, and more.

However, I know stevia is pretty expensive, especially the liquid kind, so I am super excited to announce that…

4 Whole Wheat or Bust readers will win a box of 50 stevia packets and a bottle of NuNaturals [famous] vanilla liquid stevia!

  22. spoonfulofsugarfree

    And I would like to learn more about antioxidants…stuff that isn’t well-known about them.

  23. I LOVE NuNaturals. They seriously do taste way better than any other Stevia or alternative sweetener.

    honestly….. i want anything BUT info on the athlete triad. way too sick of hearing that. But I got into a discussion with someone at work about OIL : olive vs canola vs vegetable vs sunflower ( seriously the list goes on). Most people know “good” vs “bad” – though i had comparing things like that. For me, i stay away from canola solely because i don’t feel good when i eat it so thus i assume it is harmful if it makes me feel like doodoo. But why exacty is it worse than other oils – i had trouble explaining the scientific reasoning today. so i’d love to learn about that!

  41. oh and i think ur internship sounds awesome! So we can all geek out: any exciting stories from the fertility clinic?
