Cooking a Full Meal with Splenda

Cooking a Full Meal with Splenda

Last October, I went to the grocery and got myself some Splenda products.  I was planning to eat healthy.  I thought that substituting sugar with a healthier alternative was good for me.  After reading hundreds of recipes that features Splenda, I still ended up clueless with what to cook.  Not to mention that I had to prepare to move to my new place last month.  I was too busy to even cook!

Well, now that I have settled in the condo, I’m ready to cook up a few simple meals!  This is an activity which I find difficult and exciting at the same time.

I asked a close friend to help me out.  It’s vital for me to seek help because I can’t even cook a decent egg (I’m that inexperienced with cooking!).  She was very supportive and suggested that we prepare a whole meal using Splenda as a supplementary ingredient.  WOW!  I was only thinking of one or two recipes but we ended up preparing four dishes!!!

There were two things that I was looking out for the activity:

  • the cooking experience itself.
  • learning how to prepare food.
  • if there is a difference in taste considering that we won’t be using real sugar.

Yesterday, we finally did it!  After almost two hours, all 4 dishes were completed!  I didn’t do the cooking but I was mostly chopping things and observing my friend cook.  She’s truly the best!  I truly appreciate the help she extended.  I think I can cook those dishes by myself in the future.  With regards to the taste, it was actually good!  I didn’t feel guilty eating a lot because I know it has less calories since we used Splenda.

    I put kiamoy in my calamansi juice naman, inspired by the drink I tried at Makan Makan resto inside Manila Ocean Park! 🙂
