Sugar Free Please

I am a sweet tooth! I did consume too much sugar in my youth. I am fully aligned with the belief that almost all disease begins in the mind but also  much of it in the gut, predicated upon how when why and what we eat, with only about 5% of illness due to genes. 

To this end it makes no sense to add too much sugar to your diet. Most of us get away with about a half t-spoon daily if we are well. 

Luckily there are sweet alternatives like stevia leaf, maple syrup and fresh fruit.
