&#39;sugar free&#39; to avoid / reverse inflammation also applies to all refined carbohydrates (because they metabolise too quickly).<br /><br />When tempted to make a cake / crumble / pie from soft fruit, try this alternative:<br />warm the soft fruit enough to soften them, then stir in ground nuts (almonds favourite!).<br /><br />If it&#39;s still too bitter to taste (e.g. raspberries,
