    Sweetener of Choice

    This is not a thread to declare how much you are against sweeteners or "I dont sweeten anything because I'm primal and my tastebuds are super (d)evolved!"

    What it IS, is a thread to discuss sweeteners for those of us that still want to add sweetness to our coffees/teas/desserts!

    I purchased the following and its going to be delivered today: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product

    Did I just buy something nasty? Would you recommend I try something else once I use this up?

    What do YOU use?

    I'll use a lil bit of honey on BBQ and in tea sometimes
    or a really ripe bannana in a smoothie
    The whey protein powder I use has a little bit of artificial sweetness too it that makes my smoothies taste like a milkshake

    Mark's "Primal Cookbook" uses raw organic honey or Grade B real maple syrup as a sweetener. Also, he recommends Dutch cocoa.

    Ah yes, I put Hershey's Special Dark Powder in my coffee almost every morning... I am in love with it

    I would prefer something a bit more higher quality, but thats about all I've found where I live.

    I use stevia, I'm one of those strange people that like the taste lol I find the powder is much more bitter. Good choice on grabbing the liquid! 5 drops =1tsp of sugar sweetness btw. It does have a bit of a liquorice taste to it when I put it in my coffee.
    Calm the f**k down.

    I use grade B maple syrup (and a bit of water) to deglaze the fry pan after cooking a steak: makes great sauce.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    Berries. Coconut Milk. Cream.

    I'm a recovering sugar junkie. Anything real sweet is just a gateway drug to me.

    Stevia here... I've got both the liquid extract, and the powder form. Both taste good to me.. I use it in tea, coffee, and to sweeten up cranberry juice.
    View all problems as challenges. Look upon negativities that arise as opportunities to learn and to grow. Don't run from them, condemn yourself, or bury your burden in saintly silence. You have a problem? Great. More grist for the mill. Rejoice, dive in, and investigate.
