NuPackage = NuNaturals

I got another package!  Woohoo!  You all probably know how excited I get about packages by now, so you can imagine how pumped I was to get it.  I was this pumped!

Well… no.  Maybe not. I actually received a tracking alert email a few days before that made it less surprising, but still… you get my point.

This was a package from NuNaturals, a company many of you may have already seen on other blogs and sites.  When NuNaturals asked me to review a few of their products, I had to say yes.  I mean, if they trust me to test out a their Stevia sweeteners (remember, Tiff is no baker) then they must be pretty confident.

Checkin Out the GoodiesWhile checking out the goodies, I couldn’t help but think, “Dang… that’s a lotta’ goodies!”  NuNaturals sent me a huge packet of information about their products, including a conversion chart and tons of recipes.

Before I leave you to get my sweat on, I must discuss a real downer from yesterday.  I had to attend a dessert-themed office party yesterday afternoon, and I dove right into the goodies.  See, I started okay with fruit and a cookie…

But then I went for seconds and got a big slice of key lime pie (not totally pictured).  It tasted great, but I felt terrible about myself.  I just wanted to go throw on my fat pants and pout in my room.  Seeing how my boss would frown upon that, I stuck it out like a champ in my cube.


I felt awful, both mentally and physically.  I seemed slower and lethargic, and I got a headache.  I even got hungry again for dinner, despite the sufficient number of consumed calories.  So, dinner was an apple, four almonds, and decaf Constant Comment tea.  I should have had more protein to balance out my blood sugar, but I’m no dietitian.  I’m just a girl who likes food.  Apparently, I’m just a girl who likes food a little too much.

Thanks for listening reading.  If that’s the worst thing that happens this week, then it’s going to be a good one!  I’m glad I got that off my chest.  Now it’s time to get it off my belly.  Hittin the gym!

What is your favorite sugar substitute – or do you prefer to cook with sugar?  How do you keep off the office or freshman 15?
