Thank you for your suggestions! I went today and got some Stevia and honey to try. I don't add a lot to the coffee/tea...usually just 1/2 tsp. I will try to start cutting back on that too over the next few weeks.
Congrats on joining Spark! I think your best bet is to slowly cut down on the amount of sweetness you add to your coffee/tea until you're not adding any. Honey or real stevia (check the ingredients) are your best sweetening choices until then.

I joined SP 1 month ago today and wish I had joined sooner! My goal this month is to cut back on my sugar intake. I am focusing on eliminating the color white...white bread, potatoes, rice, etc. I would love to hear any suggestions on natural sweeteners to add to my morning coffee/afternoon tea. I prefer to stay away from artificial sweeteners like Splenda or Aspartame. I have tried Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and Stevia...thoughts on these???
