Sugars....

Posted on February 21 by

Sugar and sugar substitutes are always a topic of controversy.

Artificial sweeteners like Splenda, Equal, Sweet-n-Low, Acesulfame Potassium and Neotame are all detrimental to health. Be sure to read all ingredient lists to avoid these sneaky sweeteners.

The best sweetener options are raw local honey, stevia or monk fruit.

*Avoid agave as it is 70-90% fructose!

Packaging....

Are you reading nutrition facts and ingredient lists when you are looking for a little splurge?
This caught my eye walking down the aisle. My first impression is portion control. But, once I looked and saw 55 grams of net carbs (SUGAR) and the toxic preservatives, I just shook my head.
It is easy to be deceived by pretty packaging, so be sure to read the macro-nutrient balance and the ingredients.

Adding More Produce....

If you are struggling to get in produce, shakes are a great way to add more color and nutrition to your routine.

My shake this morning was unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, a handful of spinach and 1/2 of an avocado.

Found this at Sprout's today. I have tried the edamame pasta and was not a huge fan, but going to try this one to see if the taste/texture is different. The macros are amazing!
