It's no secret how much sugar affects our health and body goals. The hardest part of staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle is giving up "treats". What if you didn't have to give up treats? What if you swapped out just a few ingredients so your treats support your goals rather than sabotage AND they still taste great?
By swapping out sugar for ingredients with flavor and nutrients, you'll have an easier time making and keeping results that you've worked so hard for.
This Silver Fern Brand Kakato Sweetener is the only sugar replacement that my body loves. I hate the way sugar alcohol's, agave, and many of the other replacements taste, affect my recipes or make me feel. Research now shows most of those are unhealthy! Even though they don't contain sugar, their highly processed ingredients affect gut inflammation due to aggravating chemicals.
Kakato Sweetener is a mix of pre and probiotics, stevia and monk fruit extract. I love it because it doesn't change the way my recipe is meant to taste and it doesn't affect my stomach the way those other replacements always have!
