Artificial Sweeteners are what we are NOT eating or drinking!

One of my favorite health, food and life blogs is called Making Love in the Kitchen. Get your mind out of the gutter, people.

Meghan is a Certified Nutritionist and Holistic Lifestyle Consultant. Click here to read her best post ever. If you only read one post from one blog today Please make it THIS ONE!


I will wait right here until you are done.

Ok, good! Now that you have read it we can chat about what a wonderful article it is.

Miss M and Miss L will tell you that aspartame is rat poison. Yes, I told them that. If it makes them stop and think before they drink something with horrid chemicals in it then so be it.

My absolute favorite part in Meghan's article is,

I don’t need to see proof that something man-made in a lab won’t kill me, for me to eat it. I want proof that something man-made will heal."

Think about that!

SO, after fully reading her article, please stop drinking Diet Coke and baking using artificial sweeteners and giving it to your children.

So, let's sum up Meghan's article for today:

Artificial Sweeteners are bad!

  • Acesulfame potassium (Sunett)
  • Aspartame (NutraSweet or Equal)
  • Sucralose (Splenda)
  • D-Tagatose (Sugaree)
  • Saccharin (Sweet ‘N Low)

Natural Sweeteners are good! More on that to come!

En Guete the good stuff! - Jenna

Considering the fact that the photo on her blog LOOKS LIKE MY PANTRY, I'm feeling a bit absurd right about now. But I am loving the green smoothie girl these days, we also eat spinach!

I think that green smoothies are a great thing to make your family.

Once you know what crap companies are putting in practically everything you eat you can try to eliminate it.

i LOVE LOVE LOVE agave nectar. they carry it at wal-mart now (good on wal-mart!) so it's easier to get. hopefully that means more people will use it.

we still consume artificial sweeteners in some things, but i never put them in anything i make!

you inspire me to be better about all these things i know, but don't always do. love you!

Oh super great post!! And good gosh-- doesn't splenda just taste BAD?? Enough for me to hate it alltogether.

Thank you for the reminder. Just cuz the FDA says it's safe to ingest doesn't make it good for your body.

Hugs girlfriend!
