Quote of the day:
Life is not merely to be alive, but to be well.
~Marcus Valerius Martial
I am super Vata (a dosha, or mind-body type, in the 5,000 year-old Ayurvedic healing system), so this Super-mom loves sweets. Not necessarily “heavy” sweets, such as pastries or what have you—but the sweet flavor in general.
Since I have a propensity toward light-but-sweet-tasting foods, Just Like Sugar was such a find for me. I love putting it in my tea and raw hot chocolate and using it in some of the baking I do with my five kiddos.
The thing I love about it is that it tastes really good, not like some of the other sugar alternatives out there. It’s all-natural, made from chicory root, not chemicals. I don’t use fake sweeteners because they’re not good for you, and I learned this first-hand in my early twenties when I cut them out of my diet and the headaches I was having stopped immediately.
