Sugars or Sweeteners? I’m telling you: you just can’t win!

What should we eat when we want something sweet? 

It’s a questions that many of us ask. We all know that any type of ‘real’ sugar promotes the growth of bad bacteria in the gut and hampers the growth of the beneficial kind.

So a few years back we were all told agave syrup was the saviour of all mankind and thus we ran off to buy it by the bucketful. All manufacturers and kind bloggers created ‘healthy’ recipes and products soaked in agave syrup. Many still do. 

Now it turns out agave is the Devil Incarnate and due to the high fructose levels, it can cause more harm than white sugar.  😐
