Amaranth Porridge with Raisins and Pecans

According to the Urban Dictionary, a “foodie” is “One who appreciates good cuisine, or just eats to do damn much.” 
I believe I qualify as a foodie, but I would also add, “Someone who is willing to try new foods with abandon.” An example being this amaranth recipe for porridge.

Amaranth, like chia seeds, were new foods to this household, but given their healthy popularity, I decided to give them a try.


So when NuNaturals sent me a box of their stevia products, I made a chocolate chia pudding, then ventured on to make a creamy amaranth porridge with NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia, earthy cinnamon, sweet raisins and crunchy pecans.

This adventurous foodie has added a variety of fun grains to her list of healthy pantry items, and now amaranth is on my grocery list too, not to mention NuNaturals stevia products.

If you’re interested in trying the stevia products I’ve used in my chocolate chia pudding and amaranth porridge, Ron at NuNaturals has a deal for you.

Ron will award four readers one bottle of Cherry Vanilla NuStevia Liquid, a 50 packet box of NuStevia White Stevia Powder Packets (my coffee favorite), AND a bottle of Cocoa and Simple Syrup. He also has a surprise product! Don’t ask  me, I have no idea what it is.

Ron is a generous guy and ships worldwide (no PO boxes though), so be sure and leave a comment to put your hat in the ring and I’ll announce the lucky winners on July 28th.

You can also receive a 15% discount on your entire order at by entering BLG1214 as the discount code. If you spend $35 or more after discounts, you’ll get free shipping in continental US.

Whew! That was a mouthful, but I’m a fan of these products and want you to enjoy them too. The liquid vanilla and the cocoa syrup are worth every penny, and because they are so concentrated, you get your money’s worth.

Good luck!
