Topic: Sweetner substitute
I hear all of support behind why we shouldnt use artificial sweetners. I am current splenda user because, I refuse to used refined sugar & I also refuse to eat certain foods without a sweetness. I would prefer NOT to use it, but I am not the kind of person that will give up sweetness or eat brown rice, or eat nonfat yogurt unsweetened, or drink green tea with only a teaspoon of honey, JUST because its good for me. I have a recipe for lowfat pumpkin bread, and it's ridiculous to expect someone to eat that bread without the sweetness because the sweetness=flavor in certain foods, just as salt does. Mrs. Dash, I am NOT a fan of. It's a bunch of bull. I hope someone can give me some ideas of what to substitute. i know there is also this product called estiva, isnt that supposed to be a natural sweetner? Help? I do want to be healthy, but I need certain things in my diet to be sweet, it's non-negoitable. Thanks in advanced.
