Desserts are so heavy and supper sweet these days. How are we supposed to manage our sugar cravings (or rather…MY sugar cravings)??? Well I love sugar, sweet, fattening and yummy recipes to death!!…However that is what it will do to you…kill you slowly but surely. (d-EAT-h = 1/3 what we eat causes daeth) White table sugar is a major carbohydrate source in the American diet, but it does not contain the proteins, vitamins and minerals that are necessary for its own metabolism. Therefore, B vitamins have to be drawn from other parts of the body. According to John D. Kirschmann, author of the “Nutrition Almanac,” consuming too much sugar is thought to lead to other mineral imbalances within the body and may be a contributing factor in obesity, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, tooth decay, asthma and other disorders.
