Why I Buy Coconut Sugar
I love sweets. Always have. Always will. Unfortunately, there was a time when my love of all things sugary was wrecking my health. Refined sugar is an addictive substance. It works in the brain much like the way that cocaine does. It gives you a lift, leaves you crashing afterward and drags you back for more over and over. And, like many illegal drugs, it wrecks your health while soothing you. (You can find out more about that here.)
What I have discovered about sugar, however, is that all sweeteners are not created equal.
