A Healthy You: Stevia vs Aspartame {Infographic}

Stevia plant
I was on a Facebook thread yesterday talking about how the intake of sugar has led to many of the health problems we face today. As part of my "firsts" for the year I am going to challenge myself to go without sugar for one day. We'll see how that goes...

My best friend has been using Stevia for a few years now, and she swears by it. It's a sugar that is naturally-derived, plus it has many other benefits as the infographic below will show. I've tried Stevia a few times, and for me it's an acquired taste, especially after using regular sugar for so many years. It's not bad, though. I have never heard of Aspartame, so I thought I'd share this infographic so you can make an informed decision the next time you're shopping for sugar alternatives.
