Natural unrefined sugar

This past week I was able to make a trip to the Mennonite Store (Coblentz Bulk Foods) by my parents home to stock up on some baking supplies.  My eye was caught by a bag of unrefined natural sugar so I purchased a bag and I have been using it. I LOVE IT!  A LOT!  I made molasses cookies this week and they were beautiful rolled in it.  So I decided to do a little research on raw sugar and I was amazed that there are minerals and beneficial nutrients in raw sugar and NONE in our refined sugar from the store, infact there are added chemicals. It was alarming. So something that intrigued me is now something I want to get instead of the regular sugar in stores, makes me feel better!!! I am including a link to a blog that has a wonderful article on this. Click on Natural Organic Lifestyle

I love how we can make little changes, it doesn't have to be all at once but as we learn and can adjust it to our budget.
