Wellcome to get to know Finland and Finnishness, as well as the world of 80's and 90's childhood memories, dreams, dance, gymnastics, baking and other interesting topics. Jump along the dance girl's journey!
I have made promice to myself…to reduce sugar. I have decided that it is mostly weekends I give myself permission to indulge in sweet treats (especially candies should not be eaten during the week, they are so artificial). I made this decision because I’m eating way too much sweets. Everyday I eat something sweet even I know I shouldn’t.
Sugar is very addictive and specially in winter time (or in the cold weather that still continues here) you feel the need for that certainly due to lack of energy…so this is not going to be easy…
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all kinds of delicates like schocolate, cookies, buns, candy, pudding, pies, cakes, ice cream, tarts, swiss rolls, pan cakes and so on…
It’s the everlasting love relationship. It’s kind of love you can’t resist…
Rats chose sugar before cocaine
Did you know that in some tests, rats chose sugar rather than cocaine? Yes, that’s right. So believe it or not sugar seems to be actually more addictive than drugs…but if you didn’t know it yet it really is poison to your body. Among other things, it maintains inflammatory conditions in your body. So do not do as I do, but do as I say AND STOP…OR atleast REDUCEEATING SUGAR!If you don’t beleave me, then watch the video. There is very interesting stuff related to sweet eating. It has a much greater impact on us than we even realize!
So the question is are you the ones who think what they eat or do you eat according to your whims? I think I do both quite equally these days. It’s really important to think about what to put in your mouth. It has a big impact on us both mentally and physically. The quality of food even affects the bacterial population in our body. So do not just eat whatever you like, make a conscious choice instead!
From the looks of it, you definitely need something sweet after the rather unsavory things you’ve experienced in the past few days. 🙂
Well, there are always alternatives to processed sugar that are way healthier. There’s stevia, muscovado, coconut sugar, and of course — the good ol’ honey. 😉
Yes, there’s alternatives… but I don’t think honey is working with everything…and I never heard of muscovado, Stevia I don’t know is it really better. For what I know real sugar is usually better than artificial sweeteners…and it tastes different, atleast coke with stevia is not as good than the regular one.
I don’t think sugar is bad if you use it with limits…and it’s the same with everything, actually. Ok, on my post I recommended to stop sugar. Maybe I was little too influenced by the video. I think it’s enough if you just use it with limits, not every day because there’s also hidden sugar in many products so you get it anyway without eating any sweets.
Muscuvado is unrefined sugar, mainly known for its high molasses content. The Philippines usually exports it to other countries such as the U.S., but I do not know if it’s sold in Finland. But just like any other food item, too much sugar is bad for you!
I don’t think you can get muscuvado in Finland.
