Sugar, for good reason, has become public enemy #1. However, we love to occasionally indulge in sweet things, and we always will. We think, in a healthy lifestyle, a little bit of sweetness isn't too bad, especially if you are exercising and moving your body regularly.
Fruit-Based And Unrefined/High-Quality Sweeteners.
In our own lives, we choose to use only certain sweeteners that make us feel better than others do and that don't give us a sluggish “crash.” We adopt the same approach at Hu.
Our favorite sweeteners are:
- fruits, like dates and figs
- tubers, like sweet potatoes
When we aren’t using fruit-based sweeteners, we stick with:
- raw unfiltered honey
- maple syrup
- unrefined organic coconut sugar
You can choose to listen to all the dogma and articles out there on the topic of sweeteners, but we do not - we simply experimented and went with what made us feel good.
