I am just so excited to host this wonderful natural sweetener, NuStevia, as a giveaway. I’m really thankful to NuNaturals for sponsoring this giveaway and it’s open to all my readers world wide! 4 lucky winners will be chosen to receive some NuStevia products. And if you are into healthy eating, then here’s the chance. You may be the lucky one! Please read on.

I have been using NuStevia everyday, in my drinks and baking. I love it in my fruit salad too, as shown here above. The oranges are often not sweet so I added a pinch of salt and a little stevia powder to sweeten it up. It tastes really good after that. I love my fruit to be sweeter. Using stevia has helped me cut down on a lot of sugar intake.

Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from a sweet-leaved plant called stevia. Stevia extract can be 300x sweeter than sugar. It is all natural and does not impact blood sugar levels unlike other forms of sugar. It is also zero in calories.

NuNatural supplies various types of stevia. There are the powder ones and also the extract ones.

NuStevia flavoured extract liquids

NuStevia flavoured extract liquids

These are highly concentrated NuStevia extract liquids combined with All-Natural flavours of real orange, vanilla, cocoa and peppermint. You can add a few drops to your water, tea, coffee, smoothies, yoghurt, baking and cooking. It gives you the flavour and the sweetness without adding sugar. I have been using the cocoa one in my coffee. Love it!

NuStevia  powder in packets

This white stevia product in small packets contains white stevia and cellulose. You don’t need a lot when you make drinks. For  a mug of coffee, I only use 1/4 of a packet when I used to add 2 teaspoons of sugar. What a difference! I always have a few packets in my bag. It comes so handy when I am having coffee or tea in a cafe. It is even suitable for Type I and II diabetes.

The latest heathy stevia products are Presweet Tagatose and NuStevia Prebiotics Blend. They are ALL NATURAL, lactose free and gluten free.

NuStevia PreSweet Tagatose

NuStevia PreSweet Tagatose

Presweet Tagatose is safe for Type 1 and Type 11 diabetes because its servings will not raise blood sugar levels. It is 92% as sweet as sugar and therefore a great substitute for unrefined sugar. It is a super benefit to those trying to minimise sugar on a weight loss program.

Tagatose is a prebiotic. Prebiotics help multiply the good bacteria in the digestive tract to help the overall health of the digestive system. Prebiotics feed probiotic bacteria like acidophilus found in yoghurt. 1/8 teaspoon is equal to 1 teaspoon sugar, containing zero calories and zero carbohydrates. It is lactose free too.

You can also get tagatose in smaller bottle where you can just sprinkle on.

Quote of the day……

“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only
way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.”

- Anthony Robbins

I read your post whenever there’s a new post, hehe…

Belinda @zomppa  on August 27th, 2012

Great to know that you found a good product!!

Jeannie  on August 27th, 2012

Wow, so many healthy products, no wonder you are so fit, I just bought an inexpensive juicer maybe it will motivate me to drink more healthy juice huh! lol!

Katerina  on August 27th, 2012

I try to eat as healthy as possible. The first good thing I did for my health was that I quit smoking! Regarding a real life joke my son always asked me why we call Chicken Gordon Bleu and I explained it to him. So, one day that I made a version of my own, he decided to call it Mummy Bleu Chicken. As for following I have you in my feeds MayMo so I don’t know if this is ok! Stevia is a very promising alternative to sugar and I hope it will be here to stay so as for people with diabetis to be able to enjoy sweets without the fear of increasing their sugar levels.

Great job, Mary! Nice review :)

Mich - Piece of Cake  on August 27th, 2012

Mary, I wished I lived in the UK and can take part in your giveaway! I know stevia is a great natural sweetener. Its not easy to find and expensive, if available at all in Asia.

I feel guilty of STILL using regular sugar. I don’t take too much sugar as I don’t (cannot) bake. But I know that’s not a good excuse. I use honey to replace sugar but that’s about it. Time to research and think of alternative! Thanks for reminder/inspiration!

Angie@Angie's Recipes  on August 28th, 2012

Love stevia. Mary, this is a great giveaway.

wok with ray  on August 28th, 2012

Looks like stevia is a great alternative to regular white sugar that isn’t really good for you. Thank you, Mary for another healthful information. I hope you are having a great week!

This company sent me their products and I’ve been a fan ever since. It truly has no after taste, in my estimation anyway. And I love it’s natural origins. Lovely fruit salad!

Mich - Piece of Cake  on August 28th, 2012

Hi Mary, thanks for the note on my blog, I’m back here again to try! I have been juicing, eating less oil, eating less meats (more fish/tofu) for a while now… It’s been great. I also buy agave nectar as a sweetener and use brown sugar where possible… would love to try Stevia!

Juliana  on August 28th, 2012

I still yet have to try to use stevia…so far tried with Splenda…and now I use agave syrup…nice review Mary.

Mistletoe  on August 29th, 2012

Yoohoo…guess who? Haha. Ok I gotta do this the OCD way.

1. Greatest success in trying to eat healthy? It’s gotta be when I made the choice to cut down on drinking pop. Can u believe I used to drink about 2-3 cans a day almost everyday? Now I mostly drink water.

2. A real life joke of myself or a loved one? Ok, one time in band camp…hahaha…just kidding. You have to have seen the movie to understand what I was joking about. Anyways, did I ever tell you about the time I banged my head so hard on Stripy’s ceiling? Well, you know where the bed and ceiling are in comparison to each other, right? So I thought I was so smart that I could quickly jump up and tuck my blanket under the mattress. Also b/c I was too lazy to get off the bed to do it. Anyways, forgetting how low the ceiling was (in the dark), I jumped up and of course banged my head so hard that I had to get off the bed and turn the light on to check that I didn’t leave a dent. Thank goodness I didn’t. Would’ve been SO embarrassed. Plus I remember thinking to myself, “please don’t come on to check on me” hoping that the owner of the house ;) didn’t hear the big bang. Hahaha. Crazy? Teehee.

3. I’m already subscribed via email. :D I told you, I’m a very good stalker. :P

Ok now when do I get my prize? Teehee. Just kidding. Best of luck to all your participants. Thanks for the opportunity, Mary. What a great giveaway!

Ashley Gold  on August 29th, 2012

Hi! Been looking for a good brand for Stevia and this looks amazing!

1) Most healthy diet change is cutting down my intake of animal protein and sugar. Also endeavor to drink 8 glasses of water a day!

2) My aunty told me this joke. “Cash, check or charge?” the cashier asked after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As the woman fumbled for her wallet, the cashier noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
“Do you always carry your TV remote?” the cashier asked.
“No,” she replied. “But my husband refused to come shopping with me, so I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him.”

Thought this was funny haha. And a great idea too!

3) Already done! :)

Nikswiks  on August 30th, 2012

Gosh this is such a great giveaway, thanks so much for hosting it! LOVE stevia :DDD

okay so i’m not very good at entering these giveaways but i’ll give it my best shot because its steeevia :))) haha

1. okay my greatest success in trying to eat healthy has been kind of a package-deal kind of thing. I only eat healthy when i’m in the right mindset, so i try to go to the gym as a part of making myself eat the right foods to get the most optimal workout, including rolled oats (i find these great for right before the workout!) and lots of fruit and veggies. I’ve also tried to cut out buying junk food at the supermarket in favour of making it (cakes, cookies, etc.) myself. Gotta make myself work for it right? :P And finally, i make green smoothies with kale, cucumber (so refreshing in smoothies!), blueberries and green tea! super rich in nutrients and yummy!

2. okay this is a bit of an embarrassing one…not sure if anyone will find this funny…but when i was in second year of university, i was walking with my friend to her flat and talking to her about this guy i liked. for a joke, i told her, “we better check to make sure he’s totally not around hahaha”. So i turned around and guess what - he was walking behind us, a few meters back, grinning goofily at us. anyhow, i was so shocked i yelped out and ran. (i could hear him laughing at me in the distance as i ran off pulling my friend.) I’m not sure if he heard us that day (hope not. :P) but to this day, i ALWAYS check to make sure people aren’t around when i’m saying remotely anything about them, no matter how unlikely the situation is!

3. subscribed! yay :)

Yummy bakes  on August 30th, 2012

I try to eat as healthy as I can but very often junk food has a way of ’seducing’ us to want more because they are so addictive. I love those fruits on the plate - can certainly induldge without feeling guilty!
