    Helpful list!

    My rule of thumb is generally not to have anything with sugar in the first five ingredients. (Although sometimes it can be the second or third ingredient but amount to less than a gram of sugar. 😏)

    I try to stay away from the substitute sucrolose as well as it spikes the glycemic index more than sure something like Stevia or Swerve.

    Not really. I just completely cut out flour and sugar, which pretty much means unprocessed foods. (I do eat vegetarian protein products though.) For me, simple works best.

    Does Stevia work for a sweetner for coffee? Or a sugar free creamer. I might just go with tea. I like passion Starbucks tea. I did see fruit juice as a sweetner on the teabag package. Also is this okay? [Image]

    Or should I say unsweetened. In any case, I’m talking about the prepared tea Starbucks sells, not the teabag.

    Stevia is a great sweetener. I prefer the liquid form for my coffee-I feel like it isn’t as bitter but thats just my opinion. I would avoid the sugar free creamer as it has chemicals and artificial sweeteners that we should really avoid. RE: the tea Ask the people at the counter as they have all the nutrition facts available. I’m guessing if its a tea bag there shouldn’t be any added sugar but if its a packet then beware. 🙂
