A Giveaway for the Healthy Breakfast Challenge

Christmas tree 2012

Hi all! How’s the Advent season going so far? The roomies and I bought and decorated our tree on Saturday as we had a housewarming/Advent party that night – it was a great success and went into the weeeee hours of the morning. To say I am tired as I write this is an understatement (it’s Sunday evening now).

Anyway, to assist my tiredness let’s get right to the point, otherwise I fear I’ll stop making sense.

To those of you who have been participating in the Healthy Breakfast Challenge thus far – good for you! How’s it going? As Christmas party season heats up, is a fulfilling, nutritious breakfast keeping you going and on track throughout your days?


For me, even on days when it’s been tough for me to stay on track, having had a balanced breakfast at least reassures me that my body got something nutritious that day. I hope it’s doing the same for you!

And for those of you who have yet to take part in the Challenge, boy, do I have some incentive for you!

The lovely folks at NuNaturals – my favourite stevia company, as you well know – have just released their new Chocolate stevia flavour. It’s amazing – not as sweet as some of the other flavoured liquid stevia products, like the lemon or orange, but with a subtle chocolate flavour that really complements your favourite chocolate dish.

It is not so strongly chocolatey that you would need to miss out the chocolate – so just add it to whatever chocolate drinks or dishes you are making.

So far, I have mixed with Greek yogurt and topped it on my chocolate chip Fitnessista breakfast cookie (see below), and used it to sweeten hot chocolate – just mix a tablespoon of cocoa powder with 1 cup soy milk, and add 1/2-1 dropper of chocolate stevia. Top with whipped cream for an extra decadent treat!

    • Of course, happy to include you as always! If you’re not eating the same that’s not a problem at all – sometimes whole food, simple breakfasts are the most nutritious so we would still love to see those! And remember, each thing you send in counts as one entry into the stevia contest!
