I agree with meoweeee, why does the site manager allow recipes that contradict the purpose of helping us diabetics? I don't get it!

I make my own soda with stevia, stevia is the only sweetener I use- aspartame isn't safe and splenda etc. also isn't safe, and in addition it spikes me… a diabetes site shouldn't be promoting these sweeteners…

I think fresh squeezed is far superior to any of the bottled or frozen juices.

Can you purchase small amounts of orange juice? I never buy it for recipes because I do not want it to go to waste. Could you squeeze the juice yourself?
