  1. My grandfather was a nutritionist and my mum is a doctor. Please be aware that although stevia is an amazing plant, a great sugar replacement, and is marketed as ‘calorie-free’ it can still cause you to put on weight.

    When you ingest the plant, based on the sweetness your brain triggers that you have ingested something sweet and your body still produces insulin sensitivity. This can later cause inflammation and be associated with other conditions.

    Keep up the amazing work! Stay happy & Healthy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I used to have a stevia plant before. I got some leaves there everyday for my husband’s coffee. He didnt like the taste of his coffee though. I stopped using the stevia leaves after that as my husband complained of not enjoying his morning drink.

  3. I didn’t know that Stevia was so good for your health and not just a simple sweetener. How does it taste when you use it in drinks or for cooking? Does it change the taste of the food?

    1. Hmm…it doesn’t really change the taste of the drink / food, however personally I feel the Stevia sweet taste does slightly different from white sugar taste ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฑ

      However, the sweet level really similar & of course healthier with Stevia ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  4. This is the first time I encountered of this plant. Well, if given a chance to try, I would. However, I don’t know where to get that kind of plant here nor if it’s available in the market. The last time I tried to eat a leaf was the java mint plant. It was such a cool leaf to munch on. It felt like eating a mint candy!

  5. I’ve never seen a real stevia plant but I have seen products with stevia and other food bloggers who use stevia for their recipes especially their smoothies and puddings. I think I’m old-school but I’ll still stick to the usual sugars and honey or maple but use them in moderation. But of course, if I get a chance to use stevia, I will surely give it a go. Thank you for sharing. v

  7. I don’t know that Stevia plant but I believe that leaves , especially those that are medicinal plants has healing properties. We always use guyabano, guava leaves among others to cure cough and colds. Good thing that I read this post as I have no idea that Stevia helps with diabetic patients. I have relatives of the same situation and this will help them for sure.
