I am getting hooked with agave and especially this particular brand. Agave nectar is a natural sweetener from the agave plant, blue agave plant that is in this case! I use this for our pancake syrup instead of imitation maple syrup or ion my toast!
The raw agave actually contains some great antioxidants. Plus it has a low glycemic index (only 17!) which helps keeps your blood sugar low after you eat it – remember it does contain sugar to be exact 16 grams of sugar per tablespoon! Just keep it in the right portion size. (FYI – table sugar has a glycemic index of 65 in the medium range)
Use in your oatmeal, on buttered toast, pancakes, waffles, tea or any other place you might use sugar!
I have a wonderful recipe for a homemade dressing that I use this in and will share later – it is to die for!! I eat sooo many veggies because of a yummy tasting dressing.
Again, this is just another example of bringing back REAL food – real sugar with actual health benefits!
