Sweeter Sweeteners

Sweeteners get a bad rap… for good reason. We are all on a sugar high that is raising insulin levels, expanding waistlines, and increasing our risk for disease. To still enjoy the sweetness of life choose a smarter sweetener!

Evaporated Cane Sugar– closest to plain ‘ol white sugar, but without all the processing. This way it keeps more nutrients (that would have been lost in processing).

Stevia– no calories, no glycemic index, and 100 percent natural!

Agave Nectar– good dose of vitamins and minerals with a low glycemic index

Sucanat– this is an organic unrefined cane sugar that is minimally processed to retain the good vitamins

Maple Syrup– simply the sap from maple trees… pure and simple. Packs more calcium than milk and loaded with zinc and manganese!

Honey– incredible antifungal and antibacterial properties, great for both eating and using as a topical ointment
