This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.


As we move into the holiday, I am baking more and my house is filled with yummy treats! We love making sweets, but yummy side dishes are great too! Because we are trying to cut some of the calories, we are using Splenda as a substitute this year. They make a Brown Sugar substitute that I will be using in my Green Bean (non) Bundles recipe this year. They make a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner.

Green Bean Non-Bundles Recipe:

  • 4 cans of Green beans, drained
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 2 TBS Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup of Brown Sugar (I am using Splenda Brown Sugar for a lighter choice)
  • 1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350. Drain green beans and empty into a 9×13 inch glass dish. Top with bacon. (I cut up into small pieces and spread out on top) Mix together 1/2 melted butter, garlic powder, and 1 cup Brown sugar. Drizzle over the top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until bacon is at desired crispness.

You can score some savings on the Splenda by clicking over to HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® website and printing upto $35 worth of coupons! You will find savings on baking items as well as health and beauty items.

Some of my favorite HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® items include:

SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Sugar Blend and Brown Sugar Blend – SPLENDA® Sweetener Products can contribute to a healthier lifestyle by helping to reduce calories from added sugar, and can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, including cooking and baking. Made from a blend of pure sugar and SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener (sucralose). A half-cup of SPLENDA® Sugar Blend or Brown Sugar Blend replaces a full cup of sugar, so it provides only half the calories and carbohydrate of sugar. Specifically designed for use in baked goods to add sweetness and moistness and provide browning and volume.

NEUTROGENA® Healthy Skin® Liquid Makeup  – Silky-light coverage glides on for a perfectly natural look, while the exclusive blend plus Broad Spectrum SPF 20 work together to visibly improve skin’s luminosity, tone and texture.

CLEAN & CLEAR® Night Relaxing Deep Cleaning Face Wash – With deep sea minerals and sea kelp extract, this purifying cleanser cleans deep to effectively wash away daily build-up – like dirt, oil and impurities deep in pores. So effective, this foaming cleanser even washes away dirt and oil you can’t see while calming aromas help wind you down – leaving you clean and relaxed. Oil-free. Won’t clog pores. Won’t over dry.

AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Targeted Tone Corrector – Helps reduce the look of stubborn dark spots, discolorations, and uneven tone to improve skin’s radiance in just 2 weeks. It is oil free, noncomedogenic and nonirritating.
