Keeping myself mindful instead of being mindless. It seems I have had the habit of going into autopilot while eating. I must be more mindful about the food. Chewing and chewing some more to help my gut health. I am back to no sweeteners but baked my husband some "poo poo cookies" with erythritol. My use of erythritol has made "poo poo" my code word for the family, as a consumer be aware of possible side effects. My experiments have been pretty successful so far, but I shall limit such future endeavors since I am abstaining right now. I am triggered by sugar and have discovered my sugar trigger doesn't react like others seem to do with natural sweeteners. Stevia does well in tea but monk fruit just doesn't do it for me. And erythritol has worked in baking but adding to tea doesn't do it for me. I'm not sure if I am adding enough or too much. I just wondered if others have this same effect when trying to use them. Anyway, I'm back to none for the moment. What sweetener have you become comfortable with using or is everyone abstaining?
