Needs more carrots, LOL!  And, those aren't cauliflowers?

all carrots were at the bottom my man, and nope, those were stuffing balls, before they soaked up all the juices.

I'm diabetic too. I avoid sweeteners altogether these days, my doctors told me for what sweeteners do to you in the long term, you are better off using just regular sugars. Originally it was the aspartame in canderel. Then is was the Sucralose in Splenda. Long term these things are more harmful then just using regular sugar in moderation.
Thats why I switched to using a teaspoon of demerara sugar in my coffee, and only ever baking stuff rarely with sugars in it.

After my experience with the two previously mentioned, I wouldn't trust xylitol either, since both candarel and splanda marketed themselves on it being safe for consumption when they began marketing it, they had no interest in looking into the long term effects, and its only now we're getting the results of years of use from studies with the prior two.

My grandfather refuse to use saccharin when it came out in the 40s.  And he had a terrible thyroid weight problem.

I've been using artificial sweeteners since the 90s and I've got an under-active thyroid problem myself. But if thats got anything to do with developing an under-active one is anyone's guess.

Yeah, I had to save on my computer all the images from Photobucket I wanted to keep and I found another image hosting site. 

I cannot imagine anyone paying that ridiculous price, and I believe they did what they did because they honestly no longer want to be around; mind you, there could have been an easier way to slip away into obscurity.

When they charge, I move on.  There is always someone with a similar service...

My grandfather's condition was genetic.  Fortunately I didn't inherit it.

I've watched trends and ideas go all my life.  I figure if it is grown cleanly and basically balanced (some meat, some veggies of all colors, some fats, some natural sugars, some starch) I'm good...

my aunt gave me a load of cooking apples from her tree. Mum suggested I try making Norwegian apple cake. Turned out quite nice :3

Edit: I just had a slice with caramel icecream
