Love Affair With Sugar

sugar200I’ve had a love affair with sugar from an early age. I would eat the little square sugar cubes on restaurant tables by the handful when we ate out for Sunday lunch. Then my parents gave me a cotton candy machine which I ran continuously. I classify myself as a recovering “sugarholic.”

When you consume processed sugar, you truly cannot taste “real food” and its’ natural sweetness. Marco Polo would give his wounded troops sugar so they could muster the strength for one last round in battle.

Set your mind to break your processed sugar addiction and use natural sources of sweetness instead like honey, maple syrup, stevia, coconut nectar, fruit, or chicory root. The desire for processed sugar will diminish!
