Truvia is ‘Sharing a Sweet Future’- How YOU Can Help

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of One2One Network and Truvia® Natural Sweetener.  All opinions are 100% mine.


Did you know that:

  • Every day, over 40% of Bolivian families struggle to support their children’s most basic food needs?
  • 65% of all rural households in Bolivia are unable to afford the minimum recommended caloric intake.

I didn’t either–until Truvia® recently contacted me about their “Sharing a Sweet Future” initiative. Knowing of the hardships faced by Bolivian families, the Truvia® brand has committed to working with the World Food Program USA to help provide Bolivian kids and families with a sweeter future.

Best Ever Chicken and Rice

The Best Ever Chicken and Rice (so good, no canned soup!)

This Chicken and Rice is one of my favorite recipes from my Mom, and I can’t remember the last time I made it!  I don’t know why I always forget about it because it’s definitely in my top 3 most favorite things she makes.  I made this for dinner the other night and I was a little worried about the reviews I would get from my two toughest critics.  Isabella seems to be in a phase where she doesn’t like anything (even if we had it the week before and she ate it all) and I was afraid it might be a touch too spicy for Sophia.  Much to my surprise, they both had seconds!  We ended up eating every bite, which meant no leftovers for me the next day.  :)

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Buttermilk Banana Bread (The Best Ever)- I will never make another banana bread. SO light and moist.

Bananas are one of my favorite fruits.  I love to eat them plain or add them into smoothies, and Sophia eats them all the time.  We easily go through a bunch of them every few days.  They are perfect to me when they start to ripen and have just a few brown “freckles” on the peel.  Continue reading
