Hi, I'm brand new to this community and this is my first post. I hope it's okay to ask this here.
My DH and I would really like to kick refined sugar once and for all. I'm not quite sure where to begin seeing as 1) it's in everything and 2) We have a really, really, really tight budget.  We eat quite healthy already, and the biggest hump is that I love to bake. It's one of my favorite things to do, I really enjoy the experience (honestly it's not about eating the result for me) but don't know how to make anything without refined sugar. I know you can use honey as a substitute but I'm not sure how to go about that since I know it's not an exact measurement. Can you use fructose instead? Is it really that much better? In what ways is organic white sugar better then refined?

If anyone here has kicked refined sugar, or in the process of doing so - are there any tips for someone just beginning? :)
