My question is — why do we even need a sweetener?
It’s all in the programming. I’ve had my morning coffee for years black/no sweetener and prefer it hands-down over sweetened coffee or tea. It wasn’t always that way, but I programmed myself to appreciate the taste.
And if you’re cooking foods that require a sweetener, [as this article suggests replacing sugar in recipes -with agave] you’re probably using other incredibly processed ingredients anyway. …making something unhealthy.
My take is simple – but really doesn’t need to be more complex.
