Treat Treats As Treats

“Treat treats as treats.”– Micheal Pollan

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have the biggest sweet tooth. I am not so much of a candy person as I am of baked treats. However, it was a long time ago that I was able to metabolize and burn off all the extra fat and sugar. Also, I started becoming more aware of processed and unprocessed foods. I was grossed out when I learned that I was literally putting cancer causing, toxic chemicals in body in the form of preservatives from candy and packaged sweets. Also, it seemed like high-fructose corn syrup or now corn syrup was just plain hard to avoid. Whether HFCS is bad for you or not, any type of processed sugar is bad in the long run. Therefore, it’s best to minimize overall sugar intake. Desserts (including candy) are special occasion food and should be treated as such.
