We have all heard it by now SUGAR is bad for you and artificial sweeteners are EVEN WORSE from a health stand point. Many have turned to artificial sweeteners to avoid the calorie punch of regular sugar but at what cost? Today’s popular artificial sweeteners such as SPLENDA and SWEET N LOW are a scary concoction of chemicals creating all sorts of chronic health problems when consumed on a regular basis. YIKES, THIS IS A PROBLEM!
I HAVE THE SOLUTION FOR YOU…
Stevia is a natural sweetener extracted from the stevia rebaudiana plant. I literally grew this plant in my garden last summer!
Stevia is generally available in powder, liquid and tablet forms. It has zero calories, a NON-Glycemic response (which makes it ideal for diabetics), and NO artificial ingredients!
Stevia is the BEST replacement for sugar and artificial sweeteners.
You can use Stevia in your hot or cold coffees, teas, homemade lemonade (my kids favorite), or any beverage and in your baked goods!
This herbal sweetener can even offer some health BENEFITS! Stevia leaves contain a surprising amount of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including zinc, vitamin C and iron.
One last thing to keep in mind with STEVIA is that less is more due to its very high sweetness concentration. A little goes a LONG way!
