Which sweetener to choose?

If your like me you always question which sweetener is the healthiest option to choose! Well here are some great choices that taste good too!!

Stevia- This is a natural powder that comes from the South American herb Stevia Rebaudiana. It has zero calories and a concentrated sweet punch. "One half teaspoon can equal the sweetness of one cup of refined white sugar".
Raw Honey- This is our original sweetener from mother nature. Raw honey actually contains probiotic bacteria that as we know helps support our digestive systems.
Sucanat- This is a straightforward substitute for granulated sugar. Sucanat actually retains molasses content which makes it close to cane sugar.
Maple Sugar Flakes- It tastes like syrup with a pleasing crunch. Its also half the calories of refined sugar.
Organic Evaporated Cane Juice - This looks like sugar (and is found in the sugar aisle of a health food store) but is slightly darker in appearance as its not as processed. Use this as you would white sugar but note is has a deeper molasses flavor.
