Say no to Processed Sugar
Get rid of processed sugar and introduce coconut sugar to your life. The organic coconut sugar is rich with minerals and vitamins. It’s obtained from the coconut palm tree itself and is considered as being more nutritious and plus, it has a lower glycemic index than the processed sugar, the silent killer of 21st century. You may also go for rice malt syrup, a more adaptable and healthier sugar substitute made from 100% organic brown rice and it’s a great choice if you’re after an entirely fructose-free option.
Try different…. Rice?
Swap out the white rice with brown rice. For those who’re unfamiliar with it, it’s not another type of rice; it’s the same as white rice, just without all the good stuff that are removed in the processing. Brown rice is type of nutritious grain that brings the much needed selenium, protein and fiber with it. It retains the minerals and B vitamins which are lost during the husk removing process and also has a lower GI than white rice. It can help you balance your diet and weight management, as it improves food digestion for a healthier metabolism.
Put sweet drinks aside, instead make your own
You might assume that apple or orange juice is a healthy drink, but most of these juices contain a lot of sugar. Just because it’s “juice”, doesn’t mean that it’s healthy for you. Make sure to always read the label with all the ingredients and nutrition facts first. There are a lot of other healthier options. You can easily make your own drinks, try mixing different flavors and find your perfect match, plus it’s more natural and healthy, sugar free.
