How Do I Use it? Sugar Part IV: Special Concerns

My usual Special Concerns of "fuel" and "water" don't really apply with sugar because as I said before you don't technically have to do anything to sugar to eat it. That being said, there still our some special concerns.

  • Diabetes. Obviously if someone in your family has diabetes, some special planning may be necessary.
  • Crash. While sugar does create energy, it also creates a crash of energy. So eat wisely. The best way to avoid it is to pair it with some protein and whole grains.
  • Needs something with it. Most people aren't going to eat straight sugar, so you'll need some recipes and foods to use it with (like oats!) 
  • Bugs. Once the food storage has been opened, you'll have to be extra careful to keep pest out. There are tons of bugs who will want your food storage as much as you do!
