Christmas is coming…. so are the sweets.

I hear it all the time….. I was doing well with my diet, but I got sabotaged because of Christmas, or birthdays, or Easter, or Valentines. LOL.

There are always occasions for celebrating. Why is celebrating events have to include white sugar and white flour. Why is treating ourselves associated with eating things that are harmful. Not really treating ourselves if you think hard about it.

Why not treat yourself with baked goods made with ingredients we know are safe. Organic oat or spelt flour. Real maple syrup, coconut sugar, stevia, raw honey. Use date or raisins, dried apricots, figs. Dried fruits are extremely healthy. They are high in fiber and nutrients. You may say that these are high in sugar. The sugar in fruits and dried fruits are not harmful, like white sugar is. The reason for that is for the fact that your body only recognizes vitamins and minerals. White sugar and anything processed doesn’t have vitamins and minerals, therefore your body does not know what to do with it. Your body then has to pull B vitamins and chromium from your body to metabolize it. You do this often enough you create a deficit. Not only that, but white sugar paralyzes our T cells and B cells which are what helps us fight infection.

Think about how many people get sick over the holidays. They have a weakened immune system. Not only the stress of the holidays, but eating things that disrupt our immune system as well.

Eat clean over the holidays. Drink lots of water. Get proper rest. Take a good quality multi vitamin, If you want to fight bacterial or viral infections, try colloidal silver instead.

If you need more help don’t wait until the New Year to make changes. Just think if you can go through Christmas you can get through any occasion.

Looking forward to meeting you and walking with you in your journey. for a free 15 min consult  or book an appointment
