"It can be incredibly confusing when you are just starting to live sugar free. Part of the ethos of living sugar free and low carb is to give up the sweet treats on a regular basis and to reset our taste buds. But being able to make a sweet treat occasionally is a deal breaker for many of you contemplating even starting. If you do want a cake, a dessert or a sweet treat, it is better to have a few good sugar free recipes on hand than to reach for a high carb snack.
Of course there are also other questions … for instance
How much sweetener to use?
Which sweeteners taste best?
Why is it hard to give up sugar?
Which are the best sweeteners to buy?
Is sugar better because it’s natural?
Sweeteners to enjoy;
Sweeteners to avoid;
The myths behind "natural sugars" !

We bring a variety of articles (and recipe ideas) to this blog, but not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.
All the best Jan
