Facing facts about sugar

Let's face it: that mid-morning cup of tea or coffee just isn't the same without sugar. At least that's the case for most of us.

Even though, deep down we already know that sugar is terrible for our bodies.

Sugar is addictive, and it has been linked to type-2 diabetes, as well as increasing your risk of cancer.

Swap sugar for natural sweeteners

Cutting out sugar doesn't mean that you have to go 'cold turkey' on absolutely anything sweet and force yourself to drink a bitter cup of coffee.

Try replacing your sugar and with these three natural sweeteners:

  • Raw honey contains antioxidants and nutrients which help to provide your body with essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Stevia originated in South America and it has been used for hundreds of years as a sweetener. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar.
  • Maple syrup contains calcium, potassium and zinc. Choose a darker Grade B maple syrup that contains more beneficial rich antioxidants than the lighter varieties.
