You get the idea. That’s not to say sugar is responsible for all our health problems. My point isfoods high in sugar should be used as treatsnot everyday (or every-meal) occurrences.
Actuallyone of my favorite ways to get a little sugar is in darkdark chocolate (70% cacao+). I also eat sugar in the form of fruit. Any sugar beyond thatI try to reserve for special occasions or specially made items.
Call me “no fun” or whatever you wantbut sugar and I? Don’t really get along too well. Though I like itI don’t like how it makes me feel!
