Healthy Coconut Macaroons 2 Ingredients Two Ingredient Takeover Mind Over Munch
Two Ingredient Takeover Hi there and welcome to Mind Over Munch two ingredient takeover where I makedelicious recipes out of just two simple ingredients. Today I'm making mytwo ingredient coconut macaroons. The two ingredients are: company shred Coconut shreds and egg whites. Start by pouring your egg whitesinto a large mixing bowl.
I'm using unsweetened coconut shredsso I need to add a little bit of sweetener to mine but if you choose to use sweetenedcoconut shreds then you won't need to add it. I just like to be in control of what the sweetener is and how much. Thumbs up for beingsmart about your ingredients. Then just add in your coconutshreds and mix to combine. Spray down a large baking sheet linedwith parchment paper and use a tablespoon or a tablespoonsized scooper if you have one which I obviously did not
to scoop out your little coconutmounds. You want them to be really compact and use up all that egg white because that is going to be the glue thatholds them together. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 to 15 minutes, untilnice and golden brown. But keep an eye on them because theywill burn quickly if you're not paying attention. Allow to cool slightly before enjoyingor box them up for later. They'll last a few days and if they softenup you can always toss them back in
the oven or toaster oven for a quick second. But they're delicious just the same. Ifyou enjoyed this tutorial I hope you'll share it with others. If you try any of my recipes out be sure toInstagram or tweet me a pic. And remember its all matter of Mind Over Munch.
Are Artificial Sugars OK With Candida
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. Today, we're going to talk about artificial sugars. Particularlyartificial sugars and their relevance to Candida yeast infections. But also artificial sugarsand their relevance to any kind of digestive problems or metabolic issues like obesity,weight gain, heart disease, many other conditions. Contrary to what you may be fed by the mediaor by Wikipedia or sites like that, artificial sugars do create health problems and thereare many, many different studies that actually substantiate these claims. If you're a personwho likes diet drinks or consume sucralose
or there's various names for these differenttypes of chemical concoction that they put in food today. I recently saw a program wherethey had quite a large tub of water. I think it was like 5,000 liters of water and theyliterally put five buckets of sugar in there, mixed it up, and then had someone taste itand they went, quot;Wow, this is really sweet.quot; And then the lady in the lab said, quot;Yeah,this is how much sugar goes in Coca Cola. Now, we're going to show you how much artificialsugar goes into diet drinks.quot; So she had a 5,000liter tub of water and she only putlike that much in a cup, just a tiny little bit of I think it was sucralose went intothat 5,000 liters. And that was stirred around
and the lady tasted it and went, quot;Wow, thistastes even sweeter. This is very sweet.quot; These things can really, really make you feellike you're having a lot of sugar when, in fact, you're not, but they do create chemicalchanges inside your gut inside the body. They're a very, very powerful sweet compound. Onething I don't like about them is they actually make you think like you're having a lot ofsugar. Some studies have shown they actually increase the desire for more and more sweetstuff. You think about it. If something tastes really sweet, it means that you're going tosay, quot;Wow, that tastes good.quot; I've said in previous tutorials that when people tell me thatthey like the taste of something, it usually
means it's sweet. Usually, if someone likesthe taste of something, it's not because it's very salty or high in fat or high in chili.It's because it's sweet and manufacturers know that.What they've done very cleverly, certain companies that make soft drinks, for example, they'veactually moved into these artificial sugars. And you'll find it in chewing gum. You'llfind it in all kinds of diet products. You'll find it in a lot of foods. I read a surveywhere it said something like up to three quarters of foods in the US contain some type of artificialsugar or high fructose corn syrup. Be very careful when you consume these sugars on adaily basis. They create a whole raft of different
problems.A study in 2014 looked at the effects of these artificial sugars on mice and humans and variousother animals, but particularly mice and human beings. They found that blood sugars are actuallyraised more with the consumption of artificial sugar than with plain sugar. Blood sugar canbe affected. How does it happen? What we think happens and what science hasproven through research. You can read it in the 2014 study. Just go Google artificialsugars and research and you'll actually find this study on the internet. It actually changesthe gut flora composition, so the bowel flora changes under the presence of artificial sugars.That's really bad when you start altering
your own microbiota. You're leaving yourselfwide open for a whole bunch of different problems. You've got your own gut flora.What experts believe is the gut flora is determined at a very young age and it doesn't reallychange that much over a person's life. So when you start drinking diet drinks everyday, you can actually manipulate the gut flora and create big health problems for yourself.Gut flora are responsible for a whole lot of different reactions in the body. We knowthat there's a link between the gut and the brain through neurotransmitters or hormones.We know the gut flora are responsible for making folic acid and B vitamins. There aremany, many different reasons why you need
