Raisins: If you haven't discovered these, you're missing one of the most enjoyable things in life. I lived on them during clinical training when it often wasn't possible to get full meals regularly. To put on food, apple butter is a secret known to too few people. Other healthtap members may have other suggestions.

Of course, apple butter is made partly from sugar or honey, but its being even more a natural fruit has been the main reason I've always liked it. Keep exploring.

Sugar substitute: Honey is higher in glucose than cane sugar and therefore has less fructose. It has a different taste which many prefer. It is a useful alternative and probably is slightly healthier on a calorie equivalent basis than regular sugar.
