Its funny isn't it?
I thought I was completely in control of my eating patterns - or understood them at least - and there wasn't a nook or cranny I hadn't thought about.
And then after what is probably 20 years of using sweeteners I suddenly thought today "Why am I doing this?"
I have half a sweetener in my cup of tea (which is a pain - try breaking those little suckers in half when there is no score line!) and a whole one, once a day in my morning coffee.
I have probably 4 cups of tea a day so that's 3 whole sweeteners every day for weeks, months, years. I swapped to Stevia only last week and thats what's probably made me think more about it.
Half a sweetener is the equivalent of a half a teaspoon - thats nothing!
So from now on my tea goes sweetener free and I will have 1 tsp of real sugar in the morning in my coffee.
Its been decades using them and I have become so used to them I hadn't even thought about changing them .
Now I am wondering what else I do that I am just habitual at, what else I have been blindly doing that I have never really thought about changing!
