Ahhh finally a chance to sit down and blog

For my husbandHello everyone, the move is DONE, the apt is cleaned and now we need to unpack and settle in. We won't have interent until Tuesday right now we are at the folks watching the BYU WSU football is here, bring on the madness.

Today I ate my last low carb tortilla for breakfast, I put 1/2 of the black bean chipotle burger, scrambled eggs and pepper jack cheese for a yummy breakfast burrito. It was delicious and kept be full until lunch time.

I have been craving something sweet and finding it hard to stay away from the bite size candy bars in the candy drawer at work. I decided that I would make some chocolate almond cookies but this morning I couldn't find the almond flour so I made coconut pumpkin muffins instead, wouldn't you know when I was cleaning up after the pumpkin muffins I found the almond flour. I've put most of the kitchen away now I just need to remember where I put things.

I bought some new stevia yesterday since I discovered that truvia is not a very good source of stevia, has anyone else used this brand? Any thoughts? My pumpkin muffins turned out great and I know I will be making lots of them now that fall is right around the corner. Well I guess that's all for now I hope everyone is doing great. I will blog more once we have internet at the house.

NuNaturals White Stevia Powder, Packets


  1. I use stevia and love it!!!! Def worth it and I feel good about putting it in my body.

  2. I love the nutaturals white stevia too. I think it's the best tasting stevia I've tried so far. I have to make sure I don't use very much, usually only 1 tsp or so in a batch of somthing. Congrats on the house!

  3. Congratulations on being in your new house! So exciting! Yum, that breakfast burrito sounds really good. I also use the NuNatural stevia. I bought a HUGE 1 lb bag of it that will probably last the rest of my life, lol. Like Dawn said just a little goes a LONG way. Luckily I think it taste great. I also bought a bag of plain Erythritol and I use that in my baking along with a tsp of the stevia.

  4. Congrats on the new house! It's so stressful buying a house and moving so hang in there. Have you ever tried sweet leaf stevia? Is Nunatuals stevia better?

  5. We are both in the same boat - moved in and unpacking. I have had those black bean burgers before - good. And I did try that stevia but can't remember - I will have to try it again.
    It sounds like we both have to make time to go shopping LOL.
    Have a good weekend. :-)
