Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sun Crystals.. Have you tried them?

I saw the ad for Sun Crystals and thought wow I wonder what they are like. I found on the Sun Crystals site a form for a free sample!

Get your free sample from Sun Crystals here!

With the latest craze of diet drinks and energy drinks containing sucralose I had to research the ingredient. The kids are drinking those drinks. Yea they knew my next move.

We know the danger of aspartame. the chemical can attach the brain tissues and blood supply causing neurotoxin havoc.. Gives me a huge migraine. That nasty after taste.

Studies have found that sucralose can cause weight gain, disruption of sleep patterns, sexual dysfunction, increases in cancer, decrease in birth weight. Weight gain? Gee I thought that people trying to lose weight use that product. It is also found to increase your appetite! You want to eat more not less.

Stevia on the other hand is all natural made from the stevia plant. I guess the only down side is price. Like most sugar free items it will be more per pound. But might be nice for something to stick in your purse or pocket for a safe alternative when needed.
