Nu Sugary Taste
Monday, April 05, 2010
Suzy is kicking the aspartame --- AKA fake sugar -- habit this spring. No more Splenda or Sweet-n-Low in the kitchen.
We've replaced it with the natural sweetner NuStevia. The calorie-product is produced from the leaves of the stevia rebaudiana plant, a South American shrub. It's supposed to be hundreds of times stronger than table sugar so you don't need much of it to sprinkle in your morning cup of coffee.
Available online or at most green grocers.
Suzy's tip: You can find it pre-packaged so it's just as easy to use as those other products!
