Tidbits: Ever tried Agave Sweetener?
Living on a small ranch in San Diego, has given me the opportunity to not only eat home grown, organic vegetables, but has also allowed me to make better choices in ingredients I purchase at the market. I have recently discovered Organic Agave Sweetener. Instead of using sugar, I substitute this sweetener which is made from the Blue Agave plant. Baking with it might be risky; however, using agave in my coffee, lemonade, homemade salad dressings, or drizzled over fresh strawberries is a healthier choice than processed sugar. Give it a try! You can purchase agave sweetener at any health food store or specialty markets such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Food, Henry’s, etc.
