Splendid job, Splenda!

As some of you know, my daughter has type 1 Diabetes, and I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.  As you can imagine, sugar is not our friend.  So when I was given the opportunity to try out Splenda with Fiber, I said, "Oh, yeah!"  Well, I've tried it and I'm still saying, "Oh, yeah!"  
 Splenda with Fiber has 3 grams of fiber in every tablespoon.  To give you an idea of how much that is, it's about the same as eating a 1/2 cup of oatmeal.  It's recommended that we (adults) get about 25 grams of fiber in our diet each day so Splenda with Fiber goes a long way to helping me reach that goal.

So does Splenda work?  Yes!  I loved that it measures the same as sugar so I don't have to spend time figuring out how to substitute it in recipes.  I really enjoy the taste.  I don't feel like it has that aftertaste that some artificial sweeteners have.


The other thing I like is Splenda has a great recipe section on their website!  Just this week we made the Choco-chip Recipe and they were great!  Plus they are only 11 grams of carbs per cookies, so much less than cookies made with sugar.

There is also a great section on living with Diabetes, and an amazing Wellnes section!  Go visit, there's great information there!


Splenda with Fiber is now our "go-to" sweetener!  Want to try it yourself?  One lucky reader has a chance to win your own bag of Splenda with fiber!  Sweet!  (hee-hee, pun intended!)

I learned:
If you have diabetes, it’s a good idea to work with your healthcare team to develop a meal plan that is right for you.

An individualized meal plan will help you decide what foods to eat and how much you should eat. A healthy meal plan can help manage your blood sugar and allow you to achieve your weight management goals.
