Honey

For sweeteners, I rarely use white sugar except when baking. As much as I can, I try to avoid it & use brown sugar instead, or HONEY!

Why? Here are some reasons:

Improved Immunity System
- its anti-microbial properties help fight certain bacteria that causes infection & diseases

Better Digestion
- it promotes digestion of the fat stored in our bodies, especially when consumed with warm water

Energy Source
- honey as a natural agent of carbohydrates, boosts performance, strength, & endurance; & may also assist in reducing muscle fatigue

Note: Honey is [still] high in calories, so as usual, MODERATION is key!

yea, not the commercialized ones. at least i think the 1 im using isn't filled with preservatives. no brand though;l it was a gift to someone that was passed on to me (haha confusing?) -from someone's farm. it's almost finished. when i find a good brand, ill message u!

(with brown sugar, just in case, i just use any brand that says brown /natural sugar;p)
