As part of my goal to move my family towards a whole foods diet, I am trying to cut out sugar. Who would have thought that it would be so difficult to cut out artificial and refined sugars?! Apparently there is a long long list of sweeteners that I have to keep an eye out for as I read ingredients lists.
The sugars that I am ok with in our diet are all natural, and unrefined. Here is a list of the sweeteners that made the cut based on the research I have done:
Local raw unfiltered honey
Organic coconut palm sugar
and Organic pure maple syrup
Start looking at the list of ingredients on products before you buy them, it is so important to know what we are putting into our bodies…and more importantly the little growing bodies of our children. You will be amazed/shocked at all the products that have unnecessarily been sweetened.
