What is sugar free to you? For me it means no ‘added’ sugars. A completely sugar free diet is almost impossible. Glucose is the most important fuel for our bodies and the fuel for our brains. Is it advisable to avoid all kinds of sugars? No!
Fruit, vegetables and whole grains also contain sugars, but in a complex form with fibers. These sugars make sure your bloodsugarlevel will not rise as quickly as refined sugars. The glucose of complex carbs is released slowly into the blood, causing a balanced blood sugar level.
Some people say fruit increases your bloodsugarlevel enormously, yes it can be but therfor choose whole fruits instead of fruit juices. The fibers of a piece of fruit will make your sugarlevel be-ing effected slowly.
RAW – Slim & Tone as a snack
A tasty snack I often make is a smoothie from two pieces of fruit, coconut water with a handful of ice cubes and two spoons Slim & Tone protein from Amazonia, mixed in a blender. The Raw ‘slim & tone’ powder is specially made to support your natural metabolism, while it also helps banish cravings. The combination of sprouted and fermented proteins, minerals, herbs and greens, makes it super healthy for your intestines and balances the bloodglucoselevel. It will increase your energylevel and helps to burn more calories. Ideal! Great as a sugarfree snack!
