Honey Honey… ahh Sugar Sugar

People have a love affair with sugar.  Americans especially can’t seem to get enough of this delectable sweetness dancing on their tongues.  Unfortunately, increased consumption of sugar generally leads to numerous health issues including heart disease, diabetes and of course, autoimmune issues.

If you have difficulties cutting out sweets completely, please try to use what I refer to as “analogs.”  Refer to my Healthier Food Options page for ideas.  Generally, some are just replacing sugar with stevia.  Instead of HFCS laden sodas, try some sweetened with stevia (ie: Zevia).  Agave syrup may be a good option.  Possibly even using natural fruits as sweeteners.  Gradually reduce intake of sugar or any type of sweeteners.

As always, please check with your doctor(s) regarding any health issues you may have and good healthy, natural options to improve your health.
