tv chef: "so we're going to make a light, healthy dressing for this salad" *adds the fruit of two oranges and two tablespoons of agave syrup* "now, I'm using agave syrup as an alternative to sugar. It's a natural sweetener that comes from the agave plant."
1. You're ADDING sweetener to a dressing that ALREADY has that much fruit juice?!?!?!
2. *deep breath* AGAVE SYRUP IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE TO SUGAR. IT IS SUGAR. It may not be "table sugar", but it is freaking sugar. Sugar is sugar, and it all acts the same in your body.
3. Agave syrup is not natural, don't believe the hype.
Gah. Watching food shows used to be relaxing... Now I just want to scream.
