I don't have diabetes--and I hope to keep it that way. But the diease has been knocking on my door for a while now. Since sugar is a no-no, I started using substitues, but soon read quite a bit on just how unheathly substitues are (and sorry, but yes, that includes Splenda!) So I found Stevia. It's an herb, very sweet, very safe IMO. I've been using it for a half a year now--even in alot of cooking. So I wanted to share.

And BTW, it sounds expensive, but trust me, it's cheap. You only need to use a very very small amount, so a container lasts months.
