Artificial sweeteners are "out." They aren't healthy for you and they certainly aren't trendy, so why not replace them with Truvia, an all natural sweetener derived from the stevia plant (see image below). This light powdery substance is not too sweet, making it ideal for cooking, baking and drinking. Better yet, it won't touch your waistline, it is recommended for people with diabetes and it is kosher certified. Sam Talbot, spokesperson for Truvia, a diabetic, and best known as a semi-finalist on Top Chef, shared his favorite Truvia recipe with me during the Oprah's Live Your Best Life event.
