So, many of you know I have been trying a new diet, Trim Healthy Mama. One of the guidelines of the book is to avoid white sugar, and one of the substitutes that comes up again and again is Stevia. I had trouble finding the right sweetener for me, so I am glad for the chance to review Sweet Stevia Gold, a liquid sweetener from Elite Gold Solutions Essential Oils.
This sweetener has zero calories, and is certified USDA organic. What really matters to me is how it works. A liquid sweetener is essential, especially for things like hot drinks, and “skinny chocolate” (a coconut oil based freezer chocolate I enjoy with my diet). It blends in seemlessly, without being grainy.
Sweet Stevia Gold is plant based, and doesn’t have any strange chemical tastes or aftertastes. Stevia is especially reccomeended because of it’s low glycemic index, so it won’t cause a blood sugar spike. It is still extremely sweet, so a drop or two goes a long way in a cup of tea, or mixed in with lemon juice and water for a quick, healthy, lemonade.
So, my Trim, Healthy Mama friends? Have you found a sweetener that works for you?
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
