This article is great! I definitely watch my sugar intake more carefully after reading this. I like to use stevia, coconut sugar and dates as sugar alternatives. I think it tastes better when you make it yourself! Buying store bought foods with tons of sugar don’t have as much flavor!

    You are right, Hannah! I like Xylitol too…have you tried that? I haven’t cooked with it yet though. Have you?

I like xylitol too. It works well with baking and is a good equal substitute for sugar. Coconut sugar is good for baking too.

What an eye opener for me a junk food adict; and even Honey is bad, ah…. Wow… Popsicles are bad if you have 4 to 6 at one time like me… It was definitly scary for me to find out how bad, how very bad Sugars are… In most every junk food there is sugar and white flour both basically inbalance and destroy our body..
I use mostly Honey and brown sugar; But I also eat a lot of Junk; so.. I will definitly have to watch for any kind of sugar intake more carefully from now on..
And keep drinking water instead of pop or any carbonated beverage…
I really needed to read this article…
Thanks very Much Paula!

And so much hidden sugars of so many types…even those that claim to be ‘natural’ or ‘organic’!
Label reading and a new commitment to reducing sugar intake might be in order!

I drink tea every morning and I have been using xylitol. I tastes fine and it makes me feel better knowing its better for me!

    Me too! I used to use stevia (and still do) but it sometimes has a bit of an ‘after taste’ in tea but xylitol tastes the same as sugar to me!

There are actually numerous details like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice level to deliver up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you carry up where an important factor shall be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the influence of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
