PS– Here’s a nutritional tidbit from Dr. Rozien’s article Making You Live Healthier; The Right Way to Feed a Sweet Tooth:

He’s talking about the plight of sugar consumption in the US–

“Study after study shows that they (added sugars and syrups) contribute to body-wide inflammation, obesity, diabetes, cancer, depression, poor sex life, and more.”

Dr. Rozien goes on noting the places we get sugars, including the natural sources–fresh fruit, grains, and vegetables…and on average Americans take in 42.5 teaspoons of sugar every day!

And here’s the clincher:

“Even natural sugars found in fiber-rich veggies and fruits that deliver gut-loving nutrients can be as harmful as added sugars and syrups (such as high fructose corn syrup) if the foods they are in are stripped of that fiberfiber slows down the digestion of sugar, preventing it from raising blood glucose precipitously, and it helps nurture healthy-promoting gut bacteria that your immune system needs to thrive and protect your heart.”

Health Radar–Vol 12, Issue 3/ March 2022, page 4

Hmmmm…fiber as in fresh fruits and whole vegetables…fiber as in mushrooms and roots. We love our grape juice, but let’s eat the grapes…orange juice from oranges! Use your blender (or Vitmix) instead of a juicer where the fiber is discarded–Keep the fiber in your diet! On a separate note, check out the Chocolove Bars that use beet fiber (inulin–a prebiotic) and chicory root (nurtures the liver) as their sweetener…is this food of the future? Or maybe just food for thought!
