Life can be challenging at times, so lighten up and treat yourself to something sweet. The northern Palm Beach County has an abundance of sweet treats spots ready for indulgent sampling.  For the average person, there is nothing wrong with sugar per se, unless all the sweet foods in your daily diet are keeping you from eating and drinking the nutritious foods you need. Moderation is always the key.

It is common to have sugar cravings. The yearning stems from both physical and psychological causes. Did you realize when you eat sugar your brain absorbs more of the amino acid tryptophan from your blood? Your brain uses tryptophan to manufacture serotonin. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of comfort and elevated mood. The effect on your mood is the same whether you eat fruit or refined sugar, however, consuming refined sugar can lead to wide swings in blood sugar levels, insulin resistance and nutritional deficiencies.  We all know that treats made with refined sugar do not contain the same healthy nutrients found in fruits.
