Sweet tooth?

Artificial sweeteners have the taste of sugar, but without the carbs (stevia). They can be used to sweeten coffee, tea, cereals or pastries.
When you adopt healthy eating habits, over time you may taste foods differently. Your taste buds may change and you may have less desire to eat sweets.
