Sugar, Sugar everywhere!
So much of our food has sugar in one form or another, as an additive because we as a society like that underlying taste.
These days that sweetness is often not listed as sugar. You will also find high fructose corn syrup in so many foods that you would never expect. This sweetness by whatever name is an underlying cause or contributor to so many disease states.
Sugar is an addiction for so many of us. Artificial sugar substitutes create even more heath concerns than white sugar.
But that is a whole post of it`s own.
Use raw cane sugar, brown sugar or honey in place of white refined sugar.
When you can, use natural low-calorie sweeteners such as stevia, agave. monk fruit.
Use real fruit to sweeten desserts when ever possible.

I am an evening snacker – I know I shouldn`t eat in the evening but my body says I am pekish and I will torture you until you give in.
I have to say, I am really enjoying both the shakes and the truffles. My husband steals the truffles, especially the caramel ones. He has a sweet tooth too, but it doesn`t show up on his butt like it does on mine.
They are all natural and based on the Mediterranean Diet. Maybe they will help some of you as well.
