LOOKING for: What sweeteners do you use?
Sugar, brown sugar, honey, fruit or juice concentrates, or artificial sweeteners like Splenda, Equal, etc...
I used to use Equal and Sweet'n'Low, but the past few years I've just been using regular sugar. I'm very wary of using artificial sweetening chemicals, and have heard that they could be more harmful than natural sugar. I'm afraid I'm rather ignorant on the subject, though... are some artificial sweeteners actually natural??? I have heard from several sources that Splenda is good.
I've been thinking about this a lot, and would like to know what others (you) use, and why, if you don't mind.
Oh, by the way! I have type 1 diabetes, use needle injections 4x/day, and do not follow a strict "diabetic" diet. Instead, my goals are to eat healthy, natural foods, and count carbs (balance insulin). However, I do believe in worldly *treats* once in awhile!
Thank You : ) Holly
