Hello, I see a lot of people read but no one answered. I have been thinking of switching to Stevia instead of the artificial sweeteners I use. Haven't yet, tried it a few times, once the brand was really good, and others didn't like, wish I remembered which brand it was. Good luck in your switch if you decide to.

I really like Stevia. Some brands are better than others. I like SweetLeaf brand the best. It has fewer added ingredients. Some of the other brands still have artificial sucralose or even sugar added to it. SweetLeaf has liquid stevia in many flavors including Vanilla Cream (yummy in coffee) and lemon (yummy in water).
SweetLeaf also makes a crystalized version that is great to carry in your purse. I bought mine from Amazon because it tends to run a little cheaper if you get free shipping.

and a Canadian version of Stevia is KRISDA, check out krisda.ca and read all the info. It has the least 'bitter' taste of any i've tried. The big problem i found is that people tend to use too much and that's when it gets bitter. It's hard to use one drop and think that our coffee or whatever is sweetened by it. But it is. Try it for a few weeks to get your taste buds use to its flavour instead of sugar.

Avocado mixed with salt, pepper, chives, a little white vinegar just to make smooth. Mix it up and spread it on bread w/ a tomato and spinach leaves! THE BEST!!!

Canned whipped cream...just a squirt if you really crave the real deal. Avoid artificial anything.
