Healthy sweeteners for everyday use👍

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; date 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.

Date Sugar:

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.

Coconut Sugar:

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.

Maple Sugar :

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, barbecue  and beans.

It is almost the weekend.



It is Wednesday, and already planning the weekend. With few hot days of summer left, easiest way to make the week shorter is to start planning for it as early as Wednesday morning.
First thing first, we need delicious snacks and food around the house.
Our favorites are smoothies usually the frozen mixed berries from Trader Joe’s. Berries and then add more of everyone’s favorite flavors like cinnamon, almond milk, and honey.
Cheese trays, with dry fruits and of course a large bowl of pirate’s booty white cheddar.

Games, laundry, one or two home made meals, and of course everyone relaxing.

Making sure there is time for relaxing.

looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
