SHUGUH! 🌟 Not as bad as you would think – yes, I still think the highly processed white stuff is the devil 😈 but I since becoming a Natural Foods Chef, I have learnt SO many new things about other, natural varieties you can use to sweeten it up! Bottom line: keep it real, raw and organic. And try to use it in minimal amounts ’cause you’re sweet enough already!!

Some of my fav ‘shuguhs’ to use include: 100% organic maple crystals, coconut crystals, organic brown sugar: I avoid anything white or highly processed, made from weird stuff that doesn’t seem ‘right’. Go with your gut – you know what works for you and what doesn’t! 😘
