sugar Show more
We made waffles with a THIRD of the sugar in the recipe and the kids are absolutely bouncing. I shudder to think what carnage we’d be seeing if it was the full amount.
Speculating a bit, this sugar excess is probably a result of the free (read: under-regulated) market. Food corps are incentivised towards taste over health (because you can fool people with claims of “low fat” etc. but you can’t fool the tongue) and so add sugar, conditioning consumers to crave sugary sweetness, and so on.
