Wellness in December: The bittersweet behind sugar
by Dr. Bridget Ross, ND; providing naturopathic care with an office upstairs at MYD

As we move into the holiday season, the sugary temptations are at an all time high. Gingerbread, fruit cake, sugar cookies, candy canes – you name it!
Benefits of reducing sugar intake include: mood improvements, weight control, and decreased pain/inflammation & energy maintenance to name a few. That’s not to say you can’t enjoy this season with the occasional treat, but keep the facts listed below in mind to help reduce temptation.
1) Sugar actively suppresses the immune system by preventing white blood cells from doing their job. It can take hours after consuming a sugary treat for you body to bounce back to normal.
2) Approximately 20% of calories from a typical North American diet is derived from added sugars, which is equal to about 40 teaspoons per day!
3) Sugar in a known inflammatory food. Symptoms like depression and anxiety are thought to be directly linked to sugar consumption due to inflammation in the brain & nervous system.
Instead of refined sugars, consume natural sugar containing foods like berries, citrus & honey. Below is a clean recipe to satisfy your holiday sweet tooth:
Chocolate Pudding
2 ripe avocados
40g cocoa powder
1/4 unsweetended milk substitute (rice, almond etc.)
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp natural sweetener (maple syrup or honey)
* Blend & serve with berries on top
