Are you or your children sugar junkies?

We pretty much all know now that too much sugar isn’t so good for us right?

To really understand the implications of excess sugar is helpful, and astounding really to be honest!

The fact that sticks with me about sugar, is a simple, and I never forget it….

Eating sugar supresses the immune responses in our bodies for up to 5 HOURS!…..

Simple sugars, including glucose, table sugar, fructose, and honey caused a fifty- percent drop in the ability of white blood cells to engulf bacteria. Dr Sears

Alarming news, considering the sugar in childrens breakfast cereals and snacks, and the amount of adults starting the day with a bagel, or pastry!!

Carbs!…(not all bad news)

The tricky thing about white carbs like white bread etc. is that the body converts it into sugar, giving a sugar rush short term and then a dip, leaving us crave more of the same!!! ….meanwhile our immune systems are left compromised.

bad carbs

Good carbs

The rule of thumb, is that carbohydrates that will give us good steady energy are those that have protein, and fibre. This can be found in wholegrains, fruit and vegetables.

It can be really worthwhile to take account of the type of food you or your children eat throughout the day, as there is a strong correlation between behaviour and diet, and the sugar habit can become a craving, and a cycle that continues, lessoning the bodies abilities to keep strong immune responses….. meaning we exist on a lower par. Some children will be sugar sensitive, and so monitoring diet will be important!

A few treats will not impact on your life, but a steady habit of sugar foods, and bad carbs will definately effect how you operate and how well you feel!!

 tip from us Family Wholefood Health*  Swap your sweetners in the house from white sugar to demerara brown sugar, maple syrup and real local honey….I have found this an easy swap, and one small change with big implications longterm

What one simple change can you make from where you are now? I’d love to hear it!!

Thanks for reading,

Christine

recipes that saved the day · wholefood family health

homemade protein energy bars

complete energy bars 2

I like these, as there is no oils used, they are made to my daughters taste as she dosen’t like dried fruits, and are made at a conservative cost as energy and protein bars in stores are quite pricey!!

Juice Plus+  Complete mix protein powder is free of whey and animal based proteins and consists of vegetable and grain based ingredients including soy ( fermented ) and chickpea powder, along with fruit and veg powders and ancient grains.

I’m hoping to batch cook these and use them for lunch boxes, and as an energy snack to support the increased physical activity in our house!!

hope the recipe is helpful
