The most difficult part of replacing white sugar with healthy sweeteners is missing the convenience of sugar. Any where out of our own kitchen replacing sugar won’t be easy, but more and more places will provide honey or molasses if you just ask for it .
Here is a list of healthy delicious sweeteners:
honey; dates sugar; coconut sugar; maple syrup & molasses
Honey-the nectar of the gods, is also used topically for centuries to heal wounds and fight infections. It’s also great for adding flavor to homemade dressings and marinades.
Date sugar- made from dried dates. Haven’t tried this one but we love adding dates cut in small pieces to oatmeal, salads, cottage cheese, eggs, and peanut butter sandwiches.
Coconut sugar- also known as coconut palm sugar or coco sap sugar, or coconut crystals is made from the sweet nectar of flower buds of the coconut palm.
Maple sugar- boiling sap from maple trees dried, powdered, and sold as maple sugar. Also great with cinnamon or ginger for added flavor to sweet potatoes, and grilled vegetables.
Molasses- dark syrup is the byproduct of processing sugar cane, but it has antioxidants, making it a better option than refined sugar. With its bold flavor it is a tasty ingredient for cookies, smoothies, barbecueand beans.
Good. There is Nothing wrong with having a snack before going to bed to ease the hunger feeling. We all have those long days that keep us awake way after we had dinner & right before bed the hunger feeling Keeps us from falling sleep.
Two important things before we eat.
1- it should be only a snack
2- a snack that won’t keep you up.
* Snack we pick should be light on the stomach and low on fat content.
* No sugary, caffeinated, or spicy foods.
Any snack with complex carbs and protein will release amino acids into our body that could actually help us sleep better at night.
