I have to admit I’ve been a culprit of consuming fake sugar for the simple fact that I think somehow it’s better for you. I wonder why we, as a society, choose to eat things that are altered or processed rather than eat something real, but in moderation? Is it the fear of gaining weight? Are we afraid of the word sugar? And by “sugar” I don’t mean the white processed stuff that we think is sugar. Rather, I’m talking about sugar in raw form from sugarcane.
Contrary to belief, you don’t necessarily need to use white sugar when cooking or baking. Try to use alternatives like raw honey, agave nectar, maple syrup or real fruit juice to sweeten your food. You will be surprised at how good it tastes! Then, when you have something to eat with processed sugar, it will taste very different to you.
