A good friend of mine has done plenty of research on artifical sweeteners (or even natural sweeteners) her blog is
She has informed me that even Truvia/Stevia is not 'clean', that your body processes the same way as sugar so can cause the same insulin problems sugar does. I'm bummed b/c I really like Truvia.
She tells me that only local organic honey, maple, agave (if organic) and Sucanat are the only 'clean' sweeteners we should use. Oh and date sugar I think she said.
Her blog has alot of useful information and although she's not a medical professional or an expert, she does a TON of research before coming to her conclusions.

I only use honey from a local farmer as a sweetener. Not sure about the Truvia? My guess is someone on this forum will put in their two cents worth and tell you no. Stevia is preferred, I think.

Use whatever cream cheese you have now. In the future, look for less saturated fat items, in order to stay clean. I am all about making compromises. Don't go broke trying to make a recipe. Going completely clean is overwhelming at first, so gradually eliminate the not so clean items as you learn.

Good luck!

Hi I just started Clean Eating yesterday I dont have all things bought yet because I am on a budget so I am gradually changing I have a ? I use truvia natural sweetener in my tea and Oatmeal and I cant find anything about natural sweeteners in the book but I want to know if that's ok? like right now she says to use fat free cream cheese, on a recipe but I have light so what's ok? I guess what i am concerned about is I gotta use what i have until I can afford to stock up on what she says so any feed back will help! Thanks Carol emoticon
