Start to replace the added refined sugar in your diet with good quality honey, proper maple syrup, dates, or other fruit such as bananas, berries, apples and pears. Sugar is still sugar, so it’s not a case of adding these sweeteners to your diet or using more – but simply replacing the sugar you would have used before, for something better and blood-sugar-balancing.
Try sweetening porridge with banana. Experiment with dates, maple syrup or even sweet potato in baking. Replace your sugary cups of tea and coffee with herbal teas sweetened with a little honey. Start to make the change and you’ll soon notice the improvements it makes to your energy levels, concentration and weight. Try our chocolate avocado mousse as a healthy sweet treat.
