Canoeing trip & Splenda #Sweetswaps Recipe


 “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the SPLENDA® Brand. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own.”
 "Summer is almost upon us, and with that comes more events, activities and tasty dishes that we love". Since we are extremely active, you know we love to be outdoors. We planned a full day outside and then a nice new recipe using SPLENDA®, to try out once we got home. The weather has been nice lately and we have been taking the Canoe out on the pond! School is almost over and it is time to be out on the water, in sunshine and making memories!
 Floating on the water, looking at wildlife, naming different kinds of fish and bird watching is just some of the great things we can do whilst outside. Canoeing is so relaxing and yet I get some exercise at the same time!
I love Summer days filled with family, memories and great food!
We came home to a new recipe I found on the Sweet Swaps websiteI went online looking for simple recipes that can be part of a balanced lifestyle. It was nice to try out a new recipe with SPLENDA®!! Did you know that swapping just one cup of sugar with one cup of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated can save more than 600 calories? We decided to try out the Sweet and Spicy Tomato Sauce Recipe, Check it out here.
After a full day of activities outside we enjoyed this savory meal. The recipe called to puree all the tomatoes but I did leave some diced because we like the texture. It is a nice sweet and spicy tasting recipe. None of our house guests could tell the difference and was pleasantly surprised by the flavoring! You can also Try swapping out spaghetti for spaghetti squash for a lower-carb, faux pasta dish! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the flavoring. This was a quick, easy to make, flavorful recipe anyone can enjoy.
