Podcast Episode 103

Is sugar bad for the environment? We often hear about how sugar impacts our health, but what about the health of the planet? Join Mary and Keith for a short and sweet (like maple syrup) conversation about the impact of sugar on the environment.

 

IN THIS EPISODE WE’LL COVER SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS:

      • Is the “sugar crash” real?
      • Where does sugar come from?
      • What is “refined” sugar?
      • Is organic sugar better for you?
      • How much water does it take to produce 1 pound of sugar?
      • Is sugar farming a social justice issue?
      • Where can I find “sugar free” dessert recipes?

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
