I am still in awe that a couple of Splenda is 24 carbs. Is this really correct? I saw it posted somewhere here.

1cup is 24.

The granulated version of sucralose (Splenda) is bulked up with maltodextrin (in fact, maltodextrin is the primary ingredient), which is where the carbs come from. This is to make it measure spoon-for-spoon like sugar. It can deliver a nasty spike too. I use liquid sucralose instead, which has nothing added to increase volume & doesn't spike me.

Today for lunch I had a slice of Shanny's pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream. Yums!

I don't know how to put this post where we were talking about Splenda. Sorry, but where do you get liquid Splenda and is it expensive? Trying to say this to Shanny or anyone.

I think there are many brands - what I have is EZ-Sweetz, a highly concentrated version which takes only 5 or 6 drops to equal 1/4 cup of sugar. The DaVinci/Torani/etc. syrups are also liquid Splenda, come in many flavors and are less concentrated.

WONDERFUL ideas!! Thanks!! Love the idea of using lettuce as a substitute for the sandwich bread.

I wish I liked greek yogurt, but it's too tart for my taste buds. I love non-greek yogurt and eat it daily - sometimes twice a day. Don't know if I can give this up.

Shanny's pumpkin pie sounds wonderful, but I dare not make it. I cannot be trusted around anything that tastes sweet. Once I get that taste in my mouth, it triggers my "wild" side and I won't stop until the whole thing is gone. :) So, I have to keep my home free and clear of anything dessert-like.
