NuNaturals Stevia Giveaway!!!

I am always excited when I can offer you guys a yummy NuNaturals Stevia giveaway!  Woo whoo!



If you are not familiar with stevia, it's a natural, no calorie sweetener. Now-a-days with it's gaining popularity there are a lot of big names  (yep, Coca Cola and PepsiCo!) coming out with a stevia based product like Truvia and Pure Via.  Unfortunately, those companies aren't really concerned about your health and their stevia products go through a chemically driven 40 step process to get you the white powdered outcome.  (Sigh)  In fact, the first ingredient in Truvia and Pure Via isn't even stevia! 

I have been using NuNatrua's stevia for YEARS and it's a brand I trust.  They start with non - GMO stevia leaves and use cold water for extraction.  If you really want the healthiest form of stevia (other than growing it in your backyard!) I suggest buying NuNaturals Pure White Stevia Extract  (there are no fillers like maltodextrin in that product, but let me warn you, a LITTLE goes a long way!) 


My friend Ron from NuNaturals has offered to give FOUR of my readers (approx. $50.00 value) gift box of:

Bottle of Cherry Vanilla NuStevia liquid 
50 packet box of NuNaturals Nustevia White Stevia  Packets
Bottle of their new NuStevia Cocoa Syrup  
Bottle of their NuNaturals Simple Syrup 
AND a fun free bonus product. :-)


I suppose I can't enter myself but I hope my mom does as I know she'll share with me - hee,hee.  
Actually, Ron sends me samples to try out too....but of course all my opinions on NuNatural's stevia are my own.  (-:

You can read my previous post on the
Top 4 Ways to Use Stevia
for more great ideas!

No, the cute little girl is not the "fun free bonus product" :-)



I just tried out the NuNaturals Cherry Vanilla NuStevia in a bottle of sparkling water and it was amazing - I've been off standard "pop"  or "soda" for about 6 years now so having a natural healthy alternative has been awesome.




I also tried the very low calorie NuStevia Cocoa Syrup in some flax milk and LOVED it!  I might have liked it a little better over salted caramel ice cream but I'm trying to be "good" ;-)  


NuNaturals can't ship to PO Boxes BUT they can now ship WORLDWIDE :-)  You can fill in just entry or all 4.  Either way, I think it will be pretty great odds of winning :-)

In a few days I'll post three of my three favorite healthy breakfasts that use a bit of stevia.  Believe me, the ingredients might surprise you but it's a DELICIOUS breakfast that has a great balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein all wrapped up in one yummy bowl. :-)




I found a great post written about the different forms of stevia and a baking conversion chart.  She mostly showcases the Sweetleaf brand but it can be used for any types of stevia.  She has the same belief as I do about choosing the best stevias for your body so I am adding her link - enjoy!

Once again, in my opinion, the healthiest choice of stevia is the NuNaturals Alcohol Free Stevia  and the NuNaturals Pure White Stevia Extract (This is because they are the purest form of stevia and can be chosen without fillers - some of the other varieties, even the NuNaturals brand contains a filler) 


Can't wait to see who wins and show you the breakfast post so you can give stevia a try!


Five Ways to Make Your Backyard Awesome This Summer!

Is it just my crazy life, or does anyone else have to travel through a cardboard box every morning and night to get into their child's room?  :-)




And once you are IN, don't bother standing up because to the left is the sleeping quarters and to the right is the changing area.  This is pretty much an all crawling tunnel room from now on :-)




As much as I love fort building -  having sheets and cardboard up for weeks on end makes my life as a pretty organized mother a little bonkers. 

And then I ran into these great outdoor summer ideas! 


How about moving the fort OUTSIDE!  Just string up a rope between two trees and put sheets over it -  add a few pillows and voila!



Or build a simple A frame and build a tee pee to play in!


handmade A frame tents


Building this great little hideout with hula hoops and shower curtains sounds awesome!

Better yet - I know my kids would LOVE it if I actually set up a tent outside.  In fact, I'm sure I'd join them for an overnighter - I'm all about sleeping under the stars :-)




What do you guys think of an outdoor movie theater this summer?! 



We actually bought an outdoor theater screen but I know you can make these with pvc pipes and white vinyl or canvas clothes. 



 I found this great informational blog post on all kinds of simple DIY ideas on how to make an outdoor theater

When we used our screen it was for my son's 9th birthday party but it didn't even get dark until 9:30pm so we had to improvise. We ended up putting it in our shop earlier in the day and the kids played race car wii games against each other FULL size for hours!



I love the idea of building a super simple tree house too!


A kid (or mom) could hang out there all day. :-)


directions on apartment therapy 


And this last one is JUST FOR FUN! :-) :-)




And THAT my friends is how to make your backyard AWESOME this summer :-)

Whatcha think? :-) Ready for the second 1/2 of SUMMER?!
(and yes, I despise those "back to school" ads coming out!!)  ;-)
