Big Island Hawaii Long Run

Aloha!  If your looking to get some fitness in while on the Big Island a run up and down Government Main Road is a great choice! Come along with me in this video for a long run starting out and back from the World Botanical Gardens. You'll see both views of the ocean on one side and snow covered Mauna Kea Mountain on the other.  Outrageous views!  I covered over 6 miles but you could go further out to make it even longer.  Did this one in late December 2017 and weather was pristine, sunny and mid 70"s.  I parked at the Garden parking lot and totally enjoyed a cool down stroll through the gorgeous gardens. Truly a beautiful experience being among nature breathing in the harmony of the plants, ocean, sun  and snow covered mountain.

What Sweetener is the Healthiest? Agave, Honey, or Coconut Sugar?

In just about every snack, dessert, and beverage there is a sweetener added to make the food taste appealing.  Most of these food items contain too much-added sweeteners. 

We all need some sugars for fuel our bodies, however, it’s a good idea to know which one is the healthiest to consume.

Knowing how each sweetener is processed is a big help to maintaining a strong, healthy body.

Agave has been labeled as a healthy alternative to most processed sweeteners.  It’s a natural sweetener with a low-glycemic index, so a lot of people thought it was the best option.
When you take a look at how agave is made, you will see how it is not the best option to be consuming. Native Mexicans once made it by boiling its sap, but now it is manufactured in factories. It is heated up so high and broken down, which looses its enzymes it needs to break down and absorb the sweetener.  What is left is nutritionally insignificant and quickly turned to fat.
