It would seem that I'm not alone in thinking that we should reduce the sugar in our diet - the news has been full of it today and it was even the subject of the radio debate I was listening to. Blimey - it makes a change for me to be up with the breaking news!
Anyway, having been rained off in the garden, I decided to make a start on our white sugar-reduction programme by making some flapjack. I'm not planning to give sugar up completely but I am intending to reduce the amount of white refined products that we use. Although I know that brown sugar isn't necessarily any healthier than white sugar, I do know that it hasn't been bleached and as it doesn't seem as sweet as white sugar, it should help us to start reducing the level of sugar that we've got used to.
