#66 - Find, buy and try stevia (sugar substitute)
I have heard about Stevia for many years, an alternative to sugar (its some kind of plant... .). I initially 'found' it back in.. March or so when it was available at a (now) local restaurent as a sweetner, but I didn't 'try' it or 'buy' it until this week (thanks Jamie for letting me buy some off you!!). I am sad to say though that I didn't really like it. I tried it in tea and in coffee. The first time I got a huge headache after, but not the second. It also made my normally yummy hot beverages feel kinda 'light' or 'thin'. Not that normally they are full-bodied beverages or anything. Anyhow, I might try it again in a bit but in general I don't think its going to make it into my regular rotation.
Return to my 101 list.
