Raw sugar is still sugar, though. It just retains more micronutrients than heavily refined sugar. The caloric content is equivalent. I suppose one could make the case that it is a little bit healthier if you're going to use sugar.

have you tried stevia instead of sugar? i like it. stevia is an actual plant. i will put it in my oatmeal i eat for breakfast. i only use the srevia when i don't put some protein powder in my oatmeal.

a teaspoon in one cup of coffee won't hurt much, but if you have several cups through out throughout the day then and put a teaspoon of sugar in each cup then that does add up.

well, i failed this week as the craft show i was set up at selling wreaths i make. i had some kettle corm which is made with sugar in a huge kettle. that stuff is delicious. i did stretch that bag of kettle corn over 4 days. hubby bough pumpkin bread and of course i had to try that also. so i failed this week.

How's everyone doing with this challenge? I am following it, but have to admit I'm probably going back to using 1 teaspoon of sugar in my coffee again......neither honey nor artificial sweetener works as well. I figure that only 15 calories for that 1 tsp. Makes it an okay addition to my coffee or tea!! I stopped the sugar on my cereal so that is a plus!

I quit putting sugar in my coffee a few months ago so this should be relatively easy for me.

This challenge will not be as drastic a change for most. "No added sugar" will just apply to regular granulated white sugar and brown sugar. You CAN use honey or jam to sweeten something. The idea behind this is to wean yourself off one thing at a time. Personally, not using sugar in my coffee will be a challenge! However, I may try 1/2 teaspoon of honey instead. I just need to leave the sugar bowl alone.
