Clean eating, What does that mean to us?

This is basically a term that has become fashionable recently.It means to cook and eat in a way that is as simple as possible, using as few processes as is needed.

Food from farm to fork.

Raw, lightly cooked, steamed, boiled, microwaved, with as little additions as possible.Organic is best.It is really the intuitive way we know is best for us.From basics, like washing not peeling vegetables.To using wholefoods and grains which are in their raw natural state, not salted or dried with any form of other ingredient.Our Grandparents had it nearly right (without the cabbage boiled grey and meat cooked until it was black) Growing your own, basic meat and veg meals.

Its about taking back control over what you put in your mouth.

 What is sugar?

All sugars are carbohydrates found naturally in most foods.Their main nutritional value is in providing energy.

“Free sugar” is the enemy!

Any sugar that is added to foods by the manufacturer, cook or consumer, as well as those that are naturally present in honey syrups and fruit juices.It does not include sugar naturally present in milk, diary, whole fruit, vegetables and grains.

These “Free Sugars” shouldn’t make up more than 5% of the energy (calorie intake) you get from food and drink each day. These are the new figures recommended by WHO in July 2015.

THEY HIDE IT!

Sugar and variants of sugar in anything with a “low-fat” label mayonnaise, ketchups, canned soups, ready meals,fruit yoghurts, crackers and fruit smoothies. Are all terrible sugar hiders.

10 Reasons Sugar is bad for you….

  • Sugar has no essential nutrients

  • Sugar can overload your liver

  • Overloading the liver with “free sugar” can cause non-alcoholic “Fatty Liver Disease”

  • Sugar can cause Insulin resistance, a stepping stone towards “Metabolic Syndrome” and Diabetes

  • The insulin resistance can progress to type II Diabetes

  • Sugar can give you cancer

  • Due to its effects on hormones and the brain, sugar has unique “fat-promoting effects”

  • Because it causes massive Dopamine release in the brain, sugar is highly addictive

  • Sugar is a leading contributor to obesity in both children and adults

  • It isn’t the fat… It’s “FREE SUGAR” that raises your cholesterol and gives you heart disease*

*The evidence is mounting that sugar, NOT fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of free sugar on metabolism.

Studies show that large amounts of free sugar can raise Triglycerides, small, dense LDL and oxidized LDL (very, very bad), raise blood glucose and insulin levels and increase abdominal obesity… in as little as 10 weeks.
