All Natural and Healthy

Over the past three years, I’ve consciously worked to lower sugar in my diet.  Aside from the history of diabetes in my family, I’ve come to understand the overall negative side effects of a diet rich in sugar.Virgin Coconut Oil

Pyure Organic Stevia Sweetener is an all-natural sweetener derived from a plant.  Instead of a sweetener substitute, stevia can actually be termed a supplement with many reported health benefits including lower blood pressure and blood sugar.

Stevia is gluten-free and calorie-free making it a preferred sweetener for many dieters or people managing diabetes.

Coconut oil is another healthy diet supplement with reported health benefits including increased metabolism for weight loss, lowering of cholesterol and immune system support.

With my Organic Coconut Chocolate Recipe using Pyure Organic Stevia, next time I’m craving chocolate, I’ll be guilt-free knowing that this chocolate is actually healthy for me.
