Halloween is an exciting time for all the kids and adults alike. But, what about all those sweet candies that are not so healthy for them? The sheer amount of sweetness has the potential to turn Halloween scarier in more ways than one for any family. Your answer is almost raw!
A rich raw treat can satisfy your cravings, without filling your body with toxic waste. If you’re transitioning into a detox or have completed a detox, I suggest learning a bit about making raw desserts. Many of them are made with sprouted grains and nuts, which provide enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
Have you ever used the sugar replacements: NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful? If so, then you’ve consumed aspartame. At least one person out of 7 in the world today consumes aspartame that is also used in countless number of food products and drinks, and even in some health supplements and pharmaceutical products.

Within seconds of drinking the sweet medicine, my boy stood up, ran into the wall with zooming speed, bumped his head, got up and began jumping on the bed.
