if you are eating nutrient-rich foods versus food that is processed or high in refined carbs, this will have different effects on the body. healthy, nutrient-rich foods will keep your hunger in check, help maintain stable blood sugar levels, minimize cravings, and enable your brain to send signals to your tummy that it’s full. nutrient-poor foods will have the opposite effect, wreaking havoc, spiking insulin, setting off cravings, slowing the feeling of being full and encouraging overeating. nutrient dense foods help keep weight in check naturally. stop counting calories…just start adding plenty of fruits and veggies to your diet, cut out the processed and refined doo doo and your body will take care of itself!
we do not add sweeteners to any of our cold pressed juices. our milks are lightly sweetened with dates or organic maple syrup. some of our smoothies are sweetened with raw, organic cane sugar that contains stevia….so we use very little…around a teaspoon full. we also offer stevia, honey, coconut oil or dates as a substitution.
sugar occurs naturally in fruit and is vital part of muscular strength and energy. fruit is a key source of vitamins. fruit juice, squeezed or solid, is very cleansing to the body. fruit juice will not spike blood sugar levels. it will raise blood sugar levels but it levels off very quickly in most people. you have to remember that you are not drinking a sugary soda with 12 teaspoons of refined sugar added. that is terrible for your body. fruit juice is a naturally occurring sugar that is beneficial to you and your health.
