My husband uses Equal but I've read that it's not good for you. What is a healthier option?
raw honey, coconut crystals, date sugar, maple syrup, molasses, fruit
The key to using less sugar is getting used to the flavours of naturally sweet foods, instead of the more-common sweetened foods.
I like the way French, Thai and Indian cooking balances flavours to enhance natural sweetness without needing nearly as much sugar...
I use Splenda:)
Apart from being able to taste it (which is not pleasant, at all!) Splenda gives me bowel cramps.
Quoting darbyakeep45:I use Splenda:)
I'm over using any artificial sweetners, over the past 6 months or so I've been paying REALLY close attention and it makes me feel crazy tired, sluggish, etc. I'd rather have the full sugar option!
I stay away from artificial sweeteners. Truthfully, I don't see the point in them. I use either stevia, agave, honey or real sugar. I generally lean towards agave and real sugar though when I need something. My take, if I'm going to use sugar then I'm going to use something real and not something aritificial.
