While most students would go out with friends to celebrate the end of a term, I spent the evening cleaning my office and bookshelf. In the past I would have been mad at myself for not being “normal”, but now I realize that I really do enjoy spending some time alone, and what better to do than organize! So in fact I truthfully enjoyed myself.
Speaking of normal, I’ve been wondering: what is the normal amount of fake sweetener one should use?
100% dark baking chocolate (UNSWEETENED)
I feel that false sweeteners are something that a lot of healthy living bloggers do not write about. Something that just gets swept under the carpet, or purposely omitted from posts.
However, since January I have slowly cut out ALMOST all false sweeteners. The only time I do have it is when I don’t have time to grab my own protein snacks and grab a protein bar (such as the quest bar).
This is becoming something tastily edible
At first unsweetened dark chocolate, unsweetened oat bran, and unsweetened protein cakes didn’t seem quite right. Now they taste wonderful, all without any sweetener!
A chocolate cheesecake frozen cookie treat (see recipe below)! Since my exams are officially done I figured I would point out my engineering ring. In case those in the other countries don’t know: In Canada all engineers get an Iron Ring that they where on the pinky finger.
So when my recipes have absolutely no sweetener or sugar in them…
I love these Capella flavor drops: Milk Chocolate Toffee. These drops are favour concentrations, not sweeteners.
….that is because there truly isn’t, and I like it just like that. In fact now I think that sweetened things taste too sweet, and I can actually enjoy naturally sweet things (like fruit) so much more!
Do you use false sweeteners? Is sweeten a word? Do you sweeten your baked goods or have them unsweetened? If you write a blog, do you ever purposely not talk about adding false sweeteners?
