One Last Stevia Give-Away

After writing my guide to stevia a few weeks back, the fine people at NuNaturals, contacted me with an offer for YOU! They would like to give away some of their new flavored liquid stevia products for you to try. One random winner will receive a three-pack of NuNaturals “new” flavored stevias: lemon, peppermint and orange. Speaking of orange, check out today’s healthy recipe, Garlic & Onion Pork Meatballs with Sweet & Sour Orange Sauce. Take a peek at my healthy Blueberry Muffins sweetened with the lemon stevia and Dark Chocolate Thin Mints sweetened with the peppermint stevia, as well!

That’s your entry. And if it so behooves you, check out the NuNaturals Facebook page and show them some love as well. Good luck! I will randomly select the winner at 5pm CST on Wednesday September 19th.

Recipe Notes
Xanthan gum is a gluten-free, corn-free thickener that is considered a fiber. It gels quite nicely once you get the hang of using it. It is very important to add it very slowly to liquids. Don’t just dump it in, or you will have a ball of gel. It’s light and powdery, so just add a little at a time, very slowly, until it is all mixed in. If your sauce gets lumpy you can strain it and it will be fine. I speak from experience.
