Recovering from the Sugar Blues!

Oops! I'm a couple weeks late. I should have had some tips for avoiding the sugar blues before Easter. Oh well, here are some tips for recovering from that overdose of nutrient depleting empty calories. These tips work for any time you happen to overdose on that sugary stuff, so even though I'm a little late, save this information for the next time you forget your will power or just decide to indulge.

5 Tips for Recovering from a Sugar Overdose:

  • If you have any Easter candy left or other sweet goodies you just happen to have around, here are a few things you can do with it:

    • throw it away
    • give it away
    • eat 1 piece a day if you absolutely can't part with it

  • Drink lots of water - at least half your body weight in ounces. So, if you weigh 128 lbs., you should drink at least 64 ounces of water, or 1/2 gallon of water a day.

  • Get back to eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and good quality protein. Eat lots of salad with extra virgin olive oil, raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar and your favorite herbs for salad dressing. Eat organic chicken or fish, baked in the oven at 350 degrees F. Lightly steam your veggies.

  • Stay away from refined and processed foods. Avoid the cookies, crackers, cakes, breads, except whole grain breads and whole grain products. Make sure they're whole grain. If an ingredient says wheat or enriched instead of whole wheat, it's not whole grain. And really, grains are not necessary. You can have a healthy diet without any grains at all. But make sure you're heavy on the vegetables and not on the meat if you do decide not to eat grains.

  • Get some exercise every day - at least 30 minutes a day. Walk briskly, ride a bike, play tennis, swim. Breathe in some good fresh air.

Healthy Recipe of the Month

Fruity Frozen Yogurt

1 cup frozen fruit
2-6 Tbsp plain goats milk yogurt
stevia liquid to taste (optional)

Choose 1 or any combination of frozen fruit. My favorite is to mix blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and mango. Mash with a fork, or blend the frozen fruit as it begins to thaw.

Add the yogurt 1 Tbsp at a time until it has the flavor and texture you desire. This will give you a tarty flavor.

If you prefer a sweeter taste, add the stevia 1 drop at a time until you get the sweetness you desire. Be careful not to add too much stevia. It will give it a bitter taste.

Although I'm not a fan of dairy products, as an occasional treat, this is a far healthier frozen yogurt than what you buy in the grocery store or at the corner yogurt shop.

Your Healthy Eating Support Group Tip

Eat your juice and drink your food.

Digestion starts in your mouth. Digestive enzymes are released as you chew. The longer you chew your food, the better digested it will be and the more nutrition you will get from it.

So, swish your juice around in your mouth long enough to get the saliva juices flowing. And chew your food 40 times or as long as necessary to make it a liquid before you swallow.
