Who doesn't like sweets sometime. The difficulty arises when these are based on non-nutritive  simple carbohydrates that flood our pancreas and cause our blood sugar to spike, because this cycle can cause mood swings and degenerative physical condition. We recommend sweets that are natural, and are not stripped of their nutrients. Some examples are Maple Syrup, Rice Syrup, and Wild Honey.
