Proof That Fruit Does NOT Spike Blood Sugar - Swayze Foster

PLEASE all of you who fear fruit, or have read Grain Brain, or another ridiculous book that demonizes fruit, like I Quit Sugar (just saying that title makes me feel like I need to go meditate til the force rises within me): WATCH THIS, she just explains it objectively.

Look at 80/10/10, the starch solution, Freelee, or Durianrider’s channels, even if you are diabetic. Fruit and starch are NOT your enemy. Grain Brain promotes fats for brain function, but minimum fruit because YES, if you are eating a high fat diet your blood sugar will spike and your glycemic index will go crazy.
My parents have just read that damn book and I am face palming all over the place. It also hurts my soul because I am still fairly new to RT4 and eating mostly fruit, it makes it really difficult when I visit down here. They are going into a completely different direction, and also making me doubt myself in changing my lifestyle.

FINALLY got to try one of the traditional dishes of a country I’m seeing! Thank you Barcelona! Almost every countries national dish contains meat and/or cheese. Perhaps not the most authentic version, but close enough 😝 {vegan paella w a bunch of funny coloured salads and spicy sauce} 👌🌸 (at Barcelona, Spain)

A dinner of Grape and Grilled Pumpkin Salad with a Mint and Olive Oil Vinaigrette dressing

This dish is an unorthodox, yet absolutely perfect combination which really must be tried. Who knew that when you combine my two favourite things - fruit and grilled root vegetables (the pumpkin had grill lines. how sexy!) - it could become something even “favourite-er”? The mint was the perfect addition, and combined with the slightly spicy yet tangy/sweet vinaigrette it makes for the perfect summer salad.

"Another big problem identified by the researchers stems from something called the “diet gap”: food that’s grown, and could be feeding people, but never makes it to their plates. That gap is massive — currently, only 51 percent of the calories we grow end up being consumed as food. The U.S., Western Europe and China are responsible for most of this, the study found, by feeding “cows and cars” (livestock and biofuels) instead of people. The crop calories we currently feed to animals, for example, could be used instead to feed an additional 4 billion people. Lessening the diet gap, lead author Paul West told Salon, is our “biggest opportunity to move the dial on the global food system as a whole.”"
