I’m attempting an afternoon post during naps. I’m brave, aren’t I?
Today’s workout so far:
4 mile treadmill run
Taught a 45 minute BOSU Blast class
Okay, so I know I’ve been talking about giving up artificial sweeteners for a bit now. I’m still not sure if I’m ready for that. Sometimes I just need a little sweetener in my life.
Why yes, that just happened a few minutes ago.
I’m trying to take baby steps though and attempting to limit my intake. Sometimes though I also just need a little something something in my café Americano or my coffee.
I have to admit it chaps my hide when I’m in a restaurant or somewhere and I find myself without any sweetener on hand. I won’t use aspartame, so I usually have some Splenda or Stevia packets hiding somewhere in my purse in case of emergencies.
I was recently sent these cool little Nevella To Go no calorie sweetener bottles to test out.
Aren’t they cute?
These new little Nevella To Go bottles come in three different flavors.
I’m not sure which one I like the best and I’ve actually put all of them to good use.
They all traveled with me to Pennsylvania last weekend.
I used the Sucralose one in my hotel made oatmeal.
At home I used the Monk Fruit instead of liquid stevia in my coconut cookie dough crumble.
It turned out pretty darn good.
As far as taking it on the go, the little bottle is pretty convenient as it’s much easier to find in my ginormous purse than some Stevia packets. I also like that you really don’t need to do much mixing when adding it to beverages.
One warning though- you really only need a little squirt. I made the mistake the first time of adding a bit too much. A little goes a long way friends.
I even had one stashed in my purse for our little family trip this past weekend. I whipped that baby out at our breakfast stop and added a little to my “gourmet” coffee.
Um, yeah, I needed that coffee in the worst way. How tired can I look? Ha.
I offered some to STUFT Daddy, but he went for the real thing instead. Go figure.
I do really like that the little bottles fit perfectly in my purse and don’t cause a big mess trying to add a little sweetness quickly on the go. It’s much easier than whipping out a packet or two and having to rip open, empty, stir, etc.
Oh man, I hope I’m not alone here on not being able to entirely give up artificial sweetener just yet. I still want to take baby steps, but for now I may be keeping one of these little calorie and carbohydrate free guys in my purse just in case.
Do any of you use a little sweetener sometimes? I hope some of you do or else I’m going to feel guilty. If so, what’s your favorite non calorie sweetener? What do you use on the go?
