I’ve learned a lot over the years regarding the pros and cons of sugar. Desiring sugar is quite natural, we have built-in taste buds for salt, sugar, bitterness, sour, and fat.
Here’s a quick label tip: When looking at a product’s nutrition label, remember that 4 grams of sugar = 1 tsp. So a soda containing 41 grams of sugar (41 divided by 4 = roughly 10) would contain 10 teaspoons of sugar. Eye opening, right?
Avoid all artificial sweeteners and stick with Natural Date Syrup or Stevia Extract Powder . I could write a very lengthy post here about sugars, but suffice it to say that sugar is healthiest when it’s in its natural form: fruit. PS: If you want to make some healthy ‘ice cream’ – (See my post about the Yonana machine!)
