The recipes that flood the media are deliciously tempting. Overwhelmingly desserts, but also high fat snack foods, and overly processed everything! Even the vegetables that initially had the possibility of providing nutrition are saturated with high-fat cheeses or oil, completely offsetting any positive function they held.
I have learned to keep it simple. I scroll past the overindulgent recipes and instead focus on purchasing the freshest fruits and vegetables along with the least processed canned goods or frozen items with no added oil and sugar.
I eliminate oils, sugar and minimize salt in recipes. I limit white flour because the most nutritious part of the wheat has been stripped to lengthen shelf life. Sugar in fruit is diluted with water and includes fiber, but water and fiber have been removed from white table sugar. What remains is a highly intense sweet that is addicting.
Enjoy your day!
