Fancy Molasses

Just a quick post.  I want to talk about molasses.  I know ‘sugar’ gets a bad rap, but did you know there are aspects of ‘sugar’ that are good for you?  Besides good solid energy.

It’s true.  Let’s take a moment to look at molasses.  Molasses is made from cane sugar.  Not a man made substitute but it is actually a whole food.

One tablespoon of molasses a day gives you 5% of your daily need i potassium, 2% of your needed daily calcium, 4% of your daily needs in iron and 5% of the carbs you NEED to survive.  (yes you do need carbs for your heart to beat and your brain to work).

Did you know that brown sugar is actually normal sugar and molasses?  The darkness of the brown sugar depends on how much molasses is put in.

I use pure organic cane sugar at home.  And honey, we are big on honey.  All of my bread is made with pure Ontario Posch honey. Which is the closest you can get for pure organic honey.

So, rethink your sweets.  Stay clean, stay whole and ENJOY!!! Thank you for dropping by…always appreciated.  Leasa
