oh ya, did i tell you how i started using erythritol? it's a sugar alcohol. you can buy it at whole foods. a bit pricey, but so worth it because you barely need any (it comes in packs to bring out with you, or in bulk for a pretty penny [$12!] for cooking.) but here's the beauty of it that makes it worth it:
it does not have a disgusting aftertaste.
ohmygod! i think i wrote about my delicious treats i'd made, but ew! stevia sucks bad. the treats are great, but you will find that stevia is not so fun. ugh! the aftertaste! so i found erythritol and it's much, much better.
it literally has no effect whatsoever on blood sugar, and you don't have to eat completely bland, bitter, boring food.
