... Stevia that doesn't taste bad!
Okay, I didn't discover it. Averie did. I won her NuNaturals Stevia giveaway a couple weeks ago, and my prize came in the mail this weekend! I received liquid vanilla-flavored stevia, stevia powder packets, and baking blend that you can use like sugar.
Verrry potent liquid drops.
They also sent me a bunch of recipes using stevia.
And some articles.
So far, I've tried the drops and the packets. I performed the ultimate taste test by trying them in my coffee and was elated to find that they taste great! I've tried several brands of stevia and they always tasted off, to the point that I couldn't enjoy my coffee. And that's the entire reason I drink it. But I guess brand really does matter when it comes to stevia, because both the liquid and the powder packets tasted great in my coffee. Yay!
I spent most of my weekend fervently working on my book. I can't even tell you how many hours I spent on it - maybe thirty? I got SO much done. It's all formatted and I did one last edit that took about 12 hours. Almost all of my photos are added, minus a couple that I have to get from Mom because I don't have any copies of them on my computer. I also did research looking for potential reviewers to contribute a blurb for the back cover. And I got to do a little bit of gazing down memory lane:
I just snapped this photo of one page in the photo album my mom made for me when I graduated high school. These are all pictures from when we lived in Germany. Up at the top left is my mom, me, and my dad in his Army uniform.
I did still manage to work out and get outside this weekend, and I took a trip to Target today that I'll feature tomorrow. Aaand the boots I ordered came in the mail. So I have a couple fun things to show you this week. =)
Do you like stevia? What sweetener do you use in your coffee, if any? I confess, I've been a pink and blue packets kind of girl, but I've been won over to stevia now. I wish I was cool enough to drink my coffee black... but I'm not. Oh, well.
