Agave Nectar

Agave Nectar is wonderfuly amazing! I have only been using it for a year and more so in the last 6 months. It is a delicious natural sweetener that is oodles better for you than sugar and syrup. I used to use brown sugar in my oatmeal and Aunt Jemima syrup on my pancakes. Now I use Agave Nectar. You will never miss your old friends. Not only does it taste just as good, the health benefits are beyond extraordinary to ingore!! for example lets compare the ingredients in syrup verses agave nectar.


Syrup:
Corn Syrup
High fructose corn syrup
water
cellulose gum
caramel color
salt
sodium benzoate
sorbic acid (perservatives)
artificial and natural flavors
sodium
hexametaphosphate

AHHHHHHHHH! Don't you just want to run after reading those ingredients!! The first two are SUGAR and then you have two different versions of salt and then perservatives and an ingredient I can't even pronounce!! Now let's look at Agave Nectar.

Agave Nectar:
Certified organic agave nectar

That's it! How wonderful is that! One ingredient with out perservatives. Love Love it!!

While I still use regular sugar in a lot of things I am really making an effort to feed my family as healthy as I can. To me that means getting ingredients that are healthy and organic. I personally feel that if I feed them healthy most of the time and then have some not so healthy meals some of the time, it is a good balance. For me at least. Buy some and give it a try!
