Serious thought on coconut sugar:
The manufacturing of coconut sugar means the death of the coconut palm for making coconut oil. Do we REALLY want to substitute a unhealthy thing for a very healthy thing?? A lot of good coconut oil producing trees are being sacrificed to feed our unhealthy sugar habit. Back off sugar, use honey, maple syrup, stevia or even xylitol if you just gotta have a fix. Any refined sugar product has got to be a long way from Primal.
Please know that I too like sweetness and indulge in a little every day. Honey is my first choice. And I sometimes put a little stevia (liquid or powder) in my tea. I am aware of my unhealthy sweetness habit and I am working to back off little by little.
Here's to our health! And to the health of our world.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
