Ask yourself: Is this food Healthy and Healing for my body, or is it Harmful?
If you have blood sugar imbalances, sugar cravings or any of the "Conditions of Aging" like aching joints, fatigue, brain fog, sleep disorders, and yes even chronic diseases, it is best to avoid anything that will spike your blood sugar, and focus instead on healing foods that will help balance it.
This means becoming a savvy shopper, reading labels of any packaged food you buy, and avoiding anything that is highly refined as well as anything with too much added sugar.
Remember, sugar in its various forms is often added to: cereals, cookies, cakes, muffins, bread, crackers, chips, granola bars, condiments like ketchup, salad dressing and sports drinks.
And it is highly concentrated in refined grain products like white bread and white rice, breaking down quickly into simple sugars.
And yes, we can replace refined foods with Healthy, Healing alternatives!
Why Cook With Me?
The Sugar-Free Kitchen Culinary Nutrition Programs and Workshops are designed to teach the power of eating a whole foods diet, with particular attention paid to including foods that may heal, and avoiding foods that harm.
And the biggest offender is sugar!
Did you know that there are over 60 different names for sugar? And this allows the processed food industry to "hide" the total sugar content from you - until you learn how to read labels and recognize what is healthy for your body and what is not.
All programs and workshops are based on the principle that eating whole, high quality, fresh and nutrient-dense Real Food will go a long way to alleviating many of the symptoms of today’s chronic ailments. And with enough healthy ingredients, your body will learn to let go of cravings for foods that are harmful.
Increase your nutrition knowledge and your recipe repertoire to plan and create healthy, nutritious and delicious meals at home!
