Use Less Sugar

This Sparked Me!

When cooking and baking I reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe down at least a third. Some recipes can even be made with no sugar at all. I started doing this because I can not stand the taste of the artificial sweeteners.

For recipes that you use frequently, you can taste test until you get a taste you like.

    This is a great idea. I agree with you sweeteners are a drag. The artificial ones are poison and the ones being touted at natural make me wonder what the hell i am really eating. I have been using stevia drops in my otherwise black coffee and sometimes if I use too much I get headaches. I am probably being psychosomatic.

anyway this idea also saves money. less sugar and no pricey sweetener.

I just found this secret of success button today were my first.
SP is so awesome! emoticon emoticon
