I am reading some recipes created for diabetics specifically. The ones that make life interesting, fun and make you feel like there is nothing wrong with your pancreas. Most of them call for some kind of artificial sweetner. I am wondering your thoughts on these. I will eat and drink things that are called "sugar free" but have artificial sugars in them, or none at all. I have cooked with artificial sweetners with horrible to great results. But the latest information says that these can cause all sorts of problems to other areas of your body. So what's a person to do? What do you think? Would you ever use half or a quarter real sugar over artificial sweetners, or go with those that are "fake" and hope for the best?
