SUGAR DETOX- DAY 2!

6 Comments 02 May 2011

 

Hi Detoxers,

The greatest part about being on the challenge is  changing the way you are eating, and looking to make long lasting changes for the betterment of their health and wellness. Who knows how this is going to snowball. There is a ripple effect whenever someone is on to something big- and ridding sugar from your diet is BIG!

All I can say is “Hooray to US!”

A major part of the success of this challenge is your “e-mail buddy”.

I’m still pairing people up, so send me a note if you need help!

I’m  receiving such exciting feedback  on how  women on the Detox are beginning to gain awareness of what foods are being put in their bodies. More awareness than ever before!
For instance, a bite of “this” and taste of “that,” – usually the thought was, oh, its only a little piece of cookie…cake..etc..
Most people never realized the hidden sugars that are found in many foods like breads, dressings and white rice sushi.

Here is the question of the day:

Can I use cane juice or cane fiber? How about honey?

One hundred grams of dried cane juice is pretty much the same thing as 100 grams of other sweeteners, no matter what you call it. Dehydrated cane juice is sugar. It simply sounds like a whole food.”

Every commonly used sweetener is as bad as sugar when it makes up a significant part of the diet.

Albeit, evaporated cane juice does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does.
It’s benefits is that it does retain trace vitamins and minerals.
Cane juice has the same amount of calories as sugar but since its  sweeter, you might get away of using less of it than sugar-which is always good!

There are mixed reviews about whether honey is better than sugar. It depends on the individuals health and condition. Consider: Honey is a sweet, thick  fluid made by honey bees from the nectar of flowering plants. Honey is sweeter than sugar ( almost 100% sucrose), has more calories than sugar and raises the blood sugar even more than white sugar. The plus side is that  raw honey reportedly has medicinal benefits and contains enzymes and small amounts of minerals and B-complex vitamins.

Whether you’re talking about cane sugar, honey, barley malt or sucanat , they’re all primarily simple sugars, simple carbohydrates.
People should understand that, if they’re eating 150 pounds of sugar a year and you change that to 150 pounds of barley malt, you’ll have the same problems with your immune system and blood sugar levels you would have if you are eating the sugar.

The bottom line is- use these sweetener substitutes sparingly!

From my own experience, I  use as much “real” food  sweeteners as possibly. Eating a sweet potato  is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth. If someone told me that last year, I would of thought they were crazy. A sweet potato vs. Oreos? No way!  I can assure you, its works. If you are new to detoxing from sugar it will take some time to retrain your taste buds. When you can start tasting the sweetness of a carrot or even the sweetness in brown rice, thats when you know you’ve got it.

Until then, use sweeteners such as Agave, Stevia, honeycomb raw honey,-use it sparingly and if needed. Notice how you may need  a certain amount of sweeteners on week 1, and less of it by week 4 and so on.

Here is  typical food plan on a Sugar Detox:

Breakfast- steel cut oatmeal with greek plain yogurt and berries.

Lunch- Ezekiel wrap bread with black beans and brown rice, chumus

Dinner- vegetable soup, tossed salad, olive oil and lemon dressing topped with fish (or protein of your choice)

2 snacks per day if needed, examples-  apple with some walnuts, seasonal fruits, carrots.., yogurt with fruit

Comment below on with your progress!!

Please Note: This is a general guide on how to eat more healthy food and omit processed and refined flours and sugars.

It does not take the place of private counseling. My goal on this site is to bring awareness to eating in a healthy and balanced way; to lose weight, feel great and ward off diseases that so many Americans are faced with.

Good News!

I am offering a free health history evaluation in person, or by phone for those who are interested in receiving individualized recommendations and nutrition advise based on your goals.

Its my pleasure to help you!

Your Fruit Plate- How to Slice a Mango

This Mother’s Day and Shavuot make sure your fruit platter is the hit of your dessert table. Cut your watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwis, strawberries  uniformly, and place your beautifully cut mangos on top or on the sides. When fruit is appealing, your kids and  guests will be just as temped to grab a vitamin C packed chunk of fruit instead of a sugary snack.

The video above shows several ways to slice a mango. Of course all of the different mango shapes are beautiful but my favotite are the decorative mango cubes pictured above!

How to Slice a Mango- Decorative Style:

  1. Stand the firm but ripe mango on its end, with stem side down
  2. Slice the flat sides off the mango, without cutting into the pit
  3. Place half mango on a cutting board, flesh side up
  4. Without cutting through the skin, score the mango with vertical lines
  5. Next, score mango with horizontal lines; leaving squares attached to the skin
  6. Turn the piece of fruit inside out and use a spoon to dislodge the cubes from the skin
  7. Repeat for the other half of the mango. Let the kids enjoy the pit!!!

Revised!- Zaatar Mini Pizzas

5 Comments 02 May 2011

This recipe was such a hit that I decided to re-post it. Zaatar is a tangy, addictive spice that is actually a mixture of dried herbs, sesame seeds,  sumac, and salt.  It is a centuries-old mixture dating back to at least the 13th century. Exactly what those herbs are, and how all those ingredients are proportioned vary from culture to culture and family to family. If you would like to create your own memorable zaatar recipe, you  can start  HERE, and  give or take a little until you create your own personal zaatar potpourri.

Great last minute yummy pizza!

Kids and adults love it- great for parties! Perfect for your Purim Seuda!!

    • Mazor’s Pizza Dough- these come ready made- I buy whole wheat mini pizza doughs at Kosher Corner.
    • Zaatar spice
    • olive oil
    • shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
    • delete the cheese, or use cheese substitute and it becomes dairy-free and vegan!
  1. place pizza doughs on Pam sprayed parchment paper on a cookie sheet
  2. mix zaatar with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, salt,  pepper and sesame seeds (to taste) in a small bowl
  3. spoon mixture on top of each pizza dough
  4. sprinkle cheese on top of each one
  5. bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes
