Truvia: Calorie-Free Sweetener

With the New Year under way are you trying to stay on top of your healthy resolutions? In a recent survey, 39% of Canadians polled would like to reduce their sugar intake in 2014, while 67% have resolved to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Truvia, a naturally-sourced, calorie-free sweetener can help you do just that. It is an excellent alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugar, and can be used in drinks, baked goods and other recipes. The bonus – it will also help you to manage your calorie intake.
