I have always had a vivid imagination. Whenever I read a book, I immediately became whoever I was reading about. When I read The Secret Garden – one of my favorites- I became Mary Lennox and tried to wall off part of my back yard with boxes, trash bins, and miscellaneous items from the garage. I once asked my mom if I could use her curtains to make a party dress, ala Scarlet O’Hara. She gave me a look which was a cross between did you forget to take your medication and aliens have inhabited my child! I was Storm, Wilma Flintstone, Cat-Woman, and She-Ra. But my all-time favorite was Super Girl! I loved her costume, her powers, and the fact that she had a weakness – kryptonite!


As an adult, I am not so animated, but I still have my ways of identifying with my favorite characters. For example, ask me a request and I can revert to Carmen Santiago in a flash. Find me! Now, it is the beginning of the New Year and I have made, like everyone else, resolutions. One of which is to not eat as much refined sugar. But alas, sugar is my kryptonite! Show me a sweet treat and I rival Scooby-Doo. I become weak and lose my strength. I am Super Girl reduced to a helpless blob! So my resolution seemed like an enormous mountain to climb, or more accurately a desert (dessert?) planet to cross. I had to find a method to satisfy my inordinate taste buds without using much of the “S” word. Then I found marvel of marvels a sweetener product that made me dance like all 3 Josie and the Pussy Cats! Truvia Spoonable!



Truvia Spoonable is delightful! It is tasty, easy to use, versatile, nutritious and just down-right zero calorie deliciousness. Just one packet of Truvia Natural Sweetener delivers the same sweetener power as two teaspoons of sugar! Be gone Kryptonite! I was on my way! Super-girl sans the kryptonite! I could conquer the enemy! Truvia Natural sweetener is not going to help me win the lottery, or become Cat Woman, but it just may help me fit into a cat suit one day. I can’t help but to tell everyone to try this product. It is all I use to replace refined sugar. Wholesome goodness that is sooo easy to use is my way to describe it. Now I have to channel Julia Child and go into the kitchen and make some Spicy Chicken Nuggets with a Sweet and Spicy Sauce. Oh! Of course, I will use Truvia Spoonable!!!

I found Truvia at my local Walmart, it was located in the baking aisle with the sugar/sugar substitutes.  You can find other delicious Truvia recipes here.
