Alright folks, I’ve made a decision the other day that I’m going to try to give up Splenda and make my way back to real sugar.
Now I don’t bake with it, but I do use it everyday in my coffee. To start to pare down, let’s be honest about my Splenda consumption:
- Morning coffee with 1 teaspoon
- Morning oatmeal with 1 teaspoon
- Late morning/Afternoon Coffees (2-3 depending on the day) – 1 packet with each coffee.
- If I make a hot chocolate at night, I use 1 tablespoon with unsweetened cocoa.
Okay. So not great. I’ve started by switching my coffee/oatmeal to 1 tsp of sugar. It makes my coffee MUCH less sweet, but I want to re-adjust my tastebuds. I’m assuming I won’t be able to do it all in one shot, so I’m going bit by bit. Today I had my 2 morning coffees with 1 tsp sugar each and my oatmeal with 1 tsp sugar. I can already say the second coffee tasted much sweeter than the first. Small changes… 🙂
