Tried Something New-Truvia

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I love to try new things, new foods, new places to go, etc. And with my renewed goal to eat better, well, one of the things i want to cut down on is my sugar intake. I love oatmeal but I love my sugar on it...a lot of it!! I have tried many different things, some work but just not up to par with my love of pure sweet sugar. So I had gotten some Truvia for free and decided now was the time to try it. All i can say is, i'm glad it was free...yuk emoticon I would almost rather have sweet and low...almost...i don't normally eat artificial sweeteners anyways... so, i guess for now, my sugar sweet oatmeal is back on the shelf for the occasional treat and not a normal breakfast item. But the good i know...Truvia YUK! lol.

    My daughter likes to put Stevia in her tea. I haven't tried it. I just put a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar in my oatmeal.

    Thanks for the info. I haven't tried it yet, or stevia for that fact. Usually I turn to spices like cinnamon and fruits/veggies I find to be sweet and see if it adds enough.

    emoticon'll find a replacement that works for you.

    Try stevia. Truvia is not natural stevia. They add stuff to it.

    I know how hard it is to curb that love of sugar, but it sounds like you are off to a great start by referring to your sugar sweet oatmeal as only an Occasional treat and not a normal breakfast item. I used to consume all those highly sweetened processed foods, and even added more sugar to those. Awful! Now I don't even put sugar in coffee.

    WTG with your renewed goal to eat better! Good luck!!!! emoticon
