I was happy to read Mark Sisson's post about Stevia, indicating that we "can think about stevia as a Primal sugar alternative with some potentially therapeutic effects". We're fans of Stevia around here. My voice teacher Susan recommended it years ago, and then last year we started using it as a sugar alternative in our coffee, which Alex still does; I don't, only because I've given up caffeine as part of my health kick. And really, I want to stay off of all sugars other than the ones that happen to exist in the whole fruits and vegetables that I eat. But if you strongly wish to add a sweetener to your food, Stevia does continue to appear to be the way to go.
