One Step Up Challenge 4: Sugar
Although sugar is sugar no matter the form, there are some healthier options for you to choose from.
Here's your next challenge:
Replace your sugar!
Level 1: Replace your white sugar with raw cane sugar. Raw sugar is less processed, and provides more nutrients than processed white sugar. It has a delicious molasses flavor to it.
Level 2: Replace your raw cane sugar with organic raw cane sugar.
Level 3: Replace your Organic raw cane sugar with a truly natural, unprocessed sweetener. Honey or maple syrup. This is a simple replacement when you are baking. I use 3/4 cups of honey to every 1 cup of sugar the recipe calls for. Sometimes less, if there's another sweet ingredient in the recipe (chocolate chips)
Which level are you on? What's your sweetener of choice?
