It’s really easy to consume added sugar without even knowing it. Had a great day? Top it off with a cookie. Bad break up? Have a tub of ice cream. Added sugar finds its way to creep into our lives with ease. For example, did you know there was added sugar in ketchup? Or flavoured yogurt? On average we consume 22 teaspoons of sugar a day! It’s time to flush out on these sweeteners, they aren’t so nice after all! Let’s get nifty this year and find ways to prevent added sugar from making its way onto our plate.
1. Stop Sugarcoating Things
Sugar consumed can be natural and as well as artificial (also known as added sugar). It’s very easy to distinguish between the two. One is refined sugar (added sugar), which can be obtained through forms such as white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, etc. The other is unrefined sugar, which we obtain naturally. They come from various sources, which are mainly fruits such as oranges and apples. Our body needs sugar to function and that’s a fact. Avoiding all types of sugar will most likely lead to health problems. However, we should pay attention to what kind of sugar we intake and how much of it. At RAW Pressery we believe only in natural sugars, which is why you will find the purest blends at our store. Try out the Life Bundle, designed to get you high on health!
2. Find Yourself A Natural Sugar Daddy
Natural sugar is awesome. It gives us a guilt-free sweetness, and is found in many natural sources. And best of all, it is healthy. It retains sugar’s natural nutrients such as calcium, iron and magnesium. Sources of unrefined sugars include honey, oranges, cane juice, maple sugar, etc. We recommend creating a healthy balance and a reduction of added sugar in your diet. Focus on gaining sugar primarily through unrefined sources due to the retained minerals, and nutrients. Consuming sugar through natural sources ensures a healthy overall diet as it brings with it healthy fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, and disease-fighting phytonutrients. We promise you, life will get pretty sweet!
3. Hey Added Sugar, It’s Over
Did you know that one can of coke contains almost 40g of added sugar? The maximum amount of added sugar one should consume in a day is 38g. So you can imagine how much we are overloading our body with added sugars. First off, try weaning off the most obvious sources. Enough with the sodas, and next time, how about a solitary teaspoon of sugar in our morning coffee? Reducing the added sugar intake can help us quickly work off that extra bit of flab. Added sugar is worse for you than you can imagine, it can lead to a number of health problems. Namely, obesity, tooth decay and diabetes. Worried about that meal between meals? RAW Pressery’s And Nothing Else bundle will do just the trick!
