Mom’s Check This Out

Fruit Juices Most of the world is fooled into thinking that downing fruit juices is a great way to be healthy and lose weight. But the fact is that this just isn’t true. Grape juice, orange juice, pineapple juices, apple juice‚ they all almost instantly spike your blood sugar levels and cause cravings for more sugar. Even worse, processed juices are stuffed with High Fructose Corn Syrup and Crystalline Fructose which cause even more powerful cravings than regular old sugar. Eat fruit instead. The fiber in whole fruit slows down the release of insulin and holds cravings at bay. Bread White bread is stripped of all its natural fiber and nutrition.

Children will eat healthy ...(Read More)
