Looking into a new way of eating. It’s called the Paleo Diet, as in Paleolithic, as in Caveman. I’ll probably just pull out a few things I can use, like this sugar advice:
Agave “nectar” is just the euphemistic marketing name for High Fructose Agave Syrup. It is highly refined and it should be avoided. The only paleo sweetener is raw honey, and only in limited quantities. You could argue that very dilute maple syrup is paleo. If you must have sweetness, another possibility is coconut palm sugar. But best is to get all sweets out of your diet and get over it.
