Start Your Day With Stevia


How do you start your day? Hopefully, it’s with a healthy breakfast.


There are many known benefits of waking up to a good meal. It helps in weight and cholesterol management, for one. People who eat breakfast are also said to experience improved concentration and energy all day. Other positive effects of starting the day with a nutritious meal include better performance at work or school, heightened focus and alertness, an overall improvement in strength and endurance, and, in general, better health.


One must remember, however, that the quality of that first meal makes a huge difference. You see, it’s not enough that you choose to eat breakfast. You should choose to eat right, above anything else. This being so, it’s easy to see how LeafLife stevia could have a place in your morning meal, and how you can benefit from it.


Here’s how you can start your day with stevia.


First off, do you choose to have a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate as a morning perk-me-up? Instead of sweetening your warm drink with sugar, choose stevia instead. You won’t need to use as much, since stevia is sweeter than sugar. Also, it will not add any extra calories to your beverage.


If you enjoy heading to your favorite coffee shop for a blended coffee beverage, change things up by making one at home instead, using stevia of course. We have a great recipe for a Mocha Soymilk Frappuccino on our recipe page that is easy to follow, definitely delicious, and healthier to boot.


If you are the type who prefers to have a cold glass of freshly squeezed juice or a smoothie as you start your day, stevia is a great choice for you, too. The last thing you would want is to sabotage these healthy breakfast beverages with additional calories from sugar, after all. With stevia, your healthy drink can become even yummier while still being good for you. If you are in search for a good stevia-sweetened smoothie to try, check out the Avocado and Pineapple Smoothie on our recipe page.


Don’t forget, you can use Stevia for your little ones’ breakfasts, too. Instead of buying sugary cereal brands purchase unsweetened, whole grain ones, which are healthier and higher in fiber. And then, sweeten with stevia as needed. Not only do you eliminate sugar from this breakfast bowl, but you can control its level of sweetness, too.


What about yogurt and oatmeal? Do your kids love these or do you need to find ways to make them a little kid-friendlier to the taste? Here’s a tip: Slightly sweeten your little ones’ yogurt and oatmeal with stevia, and then top these with fresh fruits. They will love it for sure.


On weekend mornings, when you have some extra time to prepare, go ahead and try our recipe for Cinnamon Rolls or our French Toast Casserole sweetened with stevia. These are sure to please your taste buds and your kids’ as well. You can be as creative as you want to be when you start your day with stevia. The possibilities are endless!
