Sugar…yes? no?

We all know processed sugar is NOT good for us, and we should keep sugar amounts to a minimum throughout the day (considering we get plenty of natural sugars from fruits and veggies), but what kind of substitutes can we use for sugar in recipes? What about the dangers with our OVER-consumption of processed sugar? Our bodies are surely protesting and wreaking all sorts of havoc in us in the form of diabetes, thyroid disease, obesity, and cancers. Some interesting reads…knowledge is empowering. I love to be challenged to think about different sides of a subject. http://happyherbivore.com/2012/02/sugar-substitutes/, http://wellnessmama.com/15/harmful-effects-of-sugars/, http://www.thepaleomom.com/2011/12/why-is-sugar-bad.html

Healthy Honeybee

Buzz Buzz Buzz. I’ve always felt like a little bee buzzing around searching, learning, and striving to have a healthier home, healthier kids, healthier meals, healthier habits, and a gracious thankful attitude about everything. My name is Andrea and I am truly a “Healthy Honeybee”. I am a happy busy mom of three and I adore my family. I love to cook, clean, and always try to find more time to sit on the floor and “play” with the kids which really means jump on mommy time. Hubby’s job keeps us moving and starting over every 2-3 years which keeps my inner travel bug alive and my active planner mind always churning. On my webpage and blog, I hope you will buzz along with me learning and striving for having a healthier home and a healthier life. I will share tips, stories, and lots of research about my favorite food recipes, homemade personal care and cleaning products, exercise, essential oils, and more. I hope that you learn, laugh, and find easy solutions to make your life healthier.
