I’m working with Truvia and compensated for my time.
My daughter wanted to have a tea party for her birthday and I didn’t want to load the girls up on too much sugar. So I got out the Truvia. I placed the packets in a cute little bowl and then placed them on the table next to the cookies and tea. Can you find them in the picture below?
And of course spoons to stir!….
Apparently I gave them too many cookies because the girls didn’t sleep until 12:30. It was a very late night.
Check out a few recipes from apple crisp, pumpkin pie, gingerbread men, to red velvet cupcakes, and more!We’re still working on our New Years resolution of living healthier and Truvia has provided us with a few tips to share with you guys. The Truvia brand released results from a survey that revealed some fun facts about eating habits. The results are in the infographic below. Additionally, They have partnered with the Nutrition Twins, who have shared some great, small switches that can jump-start your health (and keep you on track with your resolutions) in 2014.
1. Follow our Red, Green and Orange Rule. At each of your meals, include either a red, green or orange fruit or vegetable. You’ll focus on what you should be eating rather than what you should stay away from and you’ll fill up on nutrient-, antioxidant-, and fiber-rich foods that are an important part of a balanced diet.
2. Focus on quality carbohydrates like sweet potato, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, beans or oatmeal. Our newly released book, “The Nutrition Twins Veggie Cure: Expert Advice and Tantalizing Recipe for Health, Energy and Beauty,” explains that foods like these are fiber- and nutrient-packed sources of long lasting energy. Both your brain and muscles will be fueled appropriately to help stave off cravings and squash hunger. As an added bonus, veggies have their own specific health- and beauty-related benefits, such as fennel and artichokes for beating bloat, squash and green beans for fighting stress, tomatoes and cucumbers for improving skin tone and carrots and beans for fighting cancer, etc.
3. Sneak in exercise. It’s not always possible to get to the gym each day, but it’s important to sneak in exercise wherever you can. Take stairs instead of the elevator at work or push your kids on the swings for an arm workout. Even if you walk around the neighborhood for 15 minutes, it counts. Just get moving!
4. Use zero-calorie sweeteners like Truvia® natural sweetener in your coffee, tea, oatmeal and yogurt to cut calories. You can still enjoy sweetness, but with zero calories. Small changes can add up – if you save 100 calories a day, that equals a 10-pound weight loss over the course of the year!
