I stick to organic, liquid stevia extract. But then I don't do any baking or make anything where the "sugar" is needed for texture. I put the stevia drops (occasionally) in a smoothie type drink that needs a little lift (like an eggnog) or sometimes in my tea if I'm in a mood for a sweet taste. I also on occasion will mix a couple of drops into my nut butter/cocoa/coconut butter raw "cookie".
But honestly, I find that I have been growing more and more away from the need for sweet things at all. DH and I split a brownie thingy for dessert at our anniversary going-out-to-eat celebration and afterwards my mouth just felt so overly and uncomfortably sweet. That is a new experience for me--I've always been a sweet treat person...especially brownies!
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
