I’ve had a boatload of questions regarding sweeteners which I’ve been needing to answer. Ever since I did my original post on sweeteners, It seems that I’ve gotten a question every week about sweeteners! Today I would like to answer a few common ones (paraphrased by me).
It’s been amusing to me to see everyone’s reaction to my sweet treats on my blog. Some people say that they have to “up” the sweeteners I use a lot to taste right, others half the sweetener and say it’s much to sweet. Some reprimand me for having desserts at all on the site. It just goes to show that my readers have diverse opinions about sweeteners. We are probably all in a different place in regard to the big “sugar” question. I think that we need to be kind and understanding in dealing with those with differing opinions than us.
Also amusing to me was when I was on a grain and sugar free diet for a month (though I didn’t mention it on my blog), my daily traffic fell that whole month, but when I added them back in and started sharing grain/sweet recipes- my blog started growing again.
There is something about grains and sweets that we just like, isn’t there!
