Eating sugar is such a slippery slope. I always have the best intentions to keep sugar out of my diet, and then, after a while I inevitably get lax with it.
It starts off innocently. I’ll just add a little honey to this peanut butter banana sandwich. Why not top my oatmeal with some pure maple syrup? That’s not so bad; it’s natural sugar, after all.
Then, I’m adding 1/2 cup of Sucanat to every other baked good I make. I justify it because at least it’s unrefined evaporated cane juice and retains some nutrients.
