Healthy alternatives to sugar
      Satisfying your sweet tooth and snacking healthy are no longer mutually exclusive. At Urban Remedy, we couldn’t go without our sweets and so have found yummy substitutes for refined sugars. We’re just here to help satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you slender.

What Is So Bad about Refined Sugar?

      Refined is an adjective best kept away from your sugar. White, or refined, sugar has gone through a purification process that eliminates all vitamins and minerals, with little more than a remote possibility of nutritional value, and creating a product that is “pure” and easy to duplicate. We hate to break it to you, but the only thing pure about white sugar is that it is purely unhealthy.
      Without any of the vitamins or minerals of raw, natural sugar cane, eating white sugar satisfies your taste buds and adds calories to your diet without supplying your body with any vitamins or minerals of nutritional value. What a waste!

Sweet Substitutes

      Now, finding natural sweetening substitutes for sugar has never been easier. Here are two great options for sugar substitutes!

Stevia

Stevia is a 100% natural sweetener derived from plant leaves. Free of carbohydrates, calories, and caffeine, stevia is a wonderful solution to satisfy your sweet cravings.
At Urban Remedy, we use stevia in our pineapple coconut protein shake. Drink up for a quick trip to your sweetest paradise!

Agave

Agave Nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweet flavor without the unhealthy blood sugar spike associated with white sugars. This sweetener is big on yum and long on fun!
You can find agave nectar in our brittles and other meals in the bottle!
Dates

Dates are high in fiber absorbing LDL-cholesterol and naturally replenish energy levels, making them the perfect natural candy. At Urban Remedy, we make our gluten-free cookies with dates, and they are sinfully delicious. At home you can throw 1-2 in a smoothie, use them as a sweetener in recipes, or pop one in your mouth for a tasty sweet treat.

          Next time your sweet tooth has you craving sugar, satisfy it naturally! Feed it a naturally sweet treat, for a satisfying snack and a healthy body! Dessert is finally good for you. What a sweet deal!

you are designing for runway not she by sheree Teens are quickly moving toward a new found state of independence. This often includes finding a new fashion sense and dressing at least in your teen's mind like an individual. That said, your teen's somewhat skewed sense of style may need a helping hand at times. Decide if you really want bridal shoes to wear for 1 day only. The ultimate bridal shoes will go perfect with your wedding dress, but you will have a hard time matching them with regular outfits. It's fine if that's what you really want, but it may do you good to remember that "perfect" doesn't have to be "impractical".. Competition: A Major ThreatThe competitive rivalry within the retail industry is the major threat that Coach is currently facing. Coach currently holds 28% of the US handbag market. The figure below shows that a major chunk of Coach's revenue comes from sales of women's handbags. Enter into this a surprisingly complex tale about revenge and family. The capital of Area 11 has been devastated and the central part of it is now made up of a massive Brittania stronghold. The areas surrounding it are in ruins and are being demolished to make way for new expansions and to push down the Elevens even more. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. He was a very well educated man. He studied Art History at the University of Monpellier, and then in 1971 enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris. Lacroix had aspired to be a museum curator and so went to complete a program in museum studies at the Ecole du Louvre. The sidekick played the role of a Greek chorus, providing exposition while giving the hero someone to talk to and the reader someone to relate to. But oftentimes, this meant that they got shortchanged in the costume department. Despite being bastions of truth and justice dedicated to righting wrongs and sticking up for the downtrodden, a hero remains a vain person at heart and in order to maintain their superiority and popularity, they often clad their sidekicks in degrading and humiliating outfits. The sporty trend is a little more difficult to pull off since there isn't one basic characteristic you can look for. The upside of this is the versatility and ability to pull off this look with items already in your closet. The sporty trend falls into four simple categories according to fashion experts, "the tomboy, the sporty flapper, the urban dancer, and the Bond bombshell." On the casual to formal scale, this fad falls somewhere between gym wear and weekend, glamorous casual..orologi replcia
