Why Almond Flour Is Better Than Most Other Flours

 

Almond flour is a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour. It’s low in carbs, packed with nutrients and has a slightly sweeter taste.

Almond flour may also provide more health benefits than traditional wheat flour, such as reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol and insulin resistance (1, 2).

This article explores the health benefits of almond flour and whether it’s a better alternative to other types of flour.

What Is Almond Flour?

Almonds and Almond Flour

Almond flour is made from ground almonds.

The process involves blanching almonds in boiling water to remove the skins, then grinding and sifting them into a fine flour.

Almond flour is not the same as almond meal, despite the fact that their names are sometimes used interchangeably.

Almond meal is made by grinding almonds with their skins intact, resulting in a coarser flour.

This difference is important in recipes where texture makes a big difference.

Almond Flour Is Better for Your Blood Sugar

Foods made with refined wheat are high in carbs, but low in fat and fiber.

This can cause high spikes in blood sugar levels, followed by rapid drops, which can leave you tired, hungry and craving foods high in sugar and calories.

Conversely, almond flour is low in carbs yet high in healthy fats and fiber.

These properties give it a low glycemic index, meaning it releases sugar slowly into your blood to provide a sustained source of energy.

As mentioned above, almond flour contains a remarkably high amount of magnesium — a mineral that plays hundreds of roles in your body, including controlling blood sugar (10, 11).

It’s estimated that between 25–38% of people with type 2 diabetes have a magnesium deficiency, and correcting it through diet or supplements may significantly reduce blood sugar and improve insulin function (12, 13, 14).

In fact, almond flour’s ability to improve insulin function may also apply to people without type 2 diabetes who have either low magnesium levels or normal magnesium levels but are overweight (1, 15).

This could mean that almonds’ low glycemic properties and high magnesium content may help control blood sugar in people with or without type 2 diabetes.

Summary: Almond flour may be better than conventional flours for your blood sugar, as it has a low glycemic index and is rich in magnesium.

Almond Flour Is Gluten-Free

Wheat flours contain a protein called gluten. It helps dough stay stretchy and capture air during baking so that it rises and becomes fluffy.

People who have celiac disease or a wheat intolerance cannot eat foods with gluten because their body mistakes it as harmful.

For these individuals, the body produces an autoimmune response to remove gluten from the body. This response results in damage to the lining of the gut and can cause symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, weight loss, skin rashes and tiredness (16).

Fortunately, almond flour is both wheat-free and gluten-free, making it a great alternative for baking for those who can’t tolerate wheat or gluten.

Nevertheless, it’s still important to check the packaging of almond flour you buy. While almonds are naturally gluten-free, some products may be contaminated with gluten.

Summary: Almond flour is naturally gluten-free, making it a great alternative to wheat flour for those who have celiac disease or a wheat intolerance.

Almond Flour May Help Lower LDL Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide (17).

It’s well known that high blood pressure and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels are risk markers for heart disease.

Luckily, what you eat can have a major effect on your blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, with many studies showing that almonds can be quite beneficial for both (2, 18, 19).

An analysis of five studies including 142 people found that those who ate more almonds experienced an average decrease of 5.79 mg/dl in LDL cholesterol (19).

While this finding is promising, it might have been due to other factors than simply eating more almonds.

For example, participants in the five studies did not follow the same diet. Thus, weight loss, which is also linked to lower LDL cholesterol, could have varied across the studies (20).

Furthermore, magnesium deficiencies have been linked to high blood pressure in both experimental and observational studies, and almonds are a great source of magnesium (21, 22).

Although several studies show that correcting these deficiencies may help decrease blood pressure, they aren’t consistent. More research is needed in this area to make stronger conclusions (23, 24, 25).

Summary: The nutrients in almond flour may help reduce LDL cholesterol and lower blood pressure. The current findings are mixed, and more research is needed before making a definite link.

How to Use Almond Flour in Baking and Cooking

Almond flour is easy to bake with. In most baking recipes, you can simply replace regular wheat flour with almond flour.

It can also be used in place of bread crumbs to coat meats like fish, chicken and beef.

The downside of using almond flour over wheat flour is that baked goods tend to be more flat and dense.

This is because the gluten in wheat flour helps dough stretch and traps more air, which helps baked goods rise.

Almond flour is also higher in calories than wheat flour, containing 163 calories in one ounce (28 grams), while wheat flour contains 102 calories (26).

Summary: Almond flour can replace wheat flour at a 1:1 ratio. Because almond flour lacks gluten, baked products made with it are denser and flatter than those made with wheat products.

How Does It Compare to Alternatives?

Different Types of Flour

Many people use almond flour in place of popular alternatives like wheat and coconut flour. Below is information about how it compares.

Wheat Flours

Almond flour is much lower in carbs than wheat flours, but higher in fat.

Unfortunately, this means almond flour is higher in calories. However, it makes up for this by being incredibly nutritious.

One ounce of almond flour provides you with a good amount of your daily values for vitamin E, manganese, magnesium and fiber (3).

Almond flour is also gluten-free, while wheat flours are not, so it’s a great option for people with celiac disease or a wheat intolerance.

In baking, almond flour can often replace wheat flour at a 1:1 ratio, although baked products made with it are flatter and denser because they lack gluten.

Phytic acid, an antinutrient, is also higher in wheat flours than almond flour, which leads to the poorer absorption of nutrients from foods.

It binds to nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron, and reduces the extent to which they can be absorbed by your gut (27).

Although almonds naturally have a high phytic acid content in their skin, almond flour does not, as it loses its skin in the blanching process.

Coconut Flour

Like wheat flours, coconut flour has more carbs and less fat than almond flour.

It also contains fewer calories per ounce than almond flour, but almond flour contains more vitamins and minerals.

Both almond flour and coconut flour are gluten-free, but coconut flour is more difficult to bake with, as it absorbs moisture very well and can make the texture of baked goods dry and crumbly.

This means you might need to add more liquid to recipes when using coconut flour.

Coconut flour is also higher in phytic acid than almond flour, which can reduce how many nutrients your body can absorb from foods that contain it.

Summary: Almond flour is lower in carbs and more nutrient-dense than wheat and coconut flours. It also has less phytic acid, which means you receive more nutrients when you eat foods containing it.

The Bottom Line

Almond flour is a great alternative to wheat-based flours.

It’s incredibly nutritious and provides many potential health benefits, including a reduced risk of heart disease and improved blood sugar control.

Almond flour is also gluten-free, which makes it a great option for those with celiac disease or a wheat intolerance.

If you’re looking for a low-carb flour that’s rich in nutrients, almond flour is a great choice.

DEATH IN THE WATER: HOW PLASTIC IS POISONING OUR OCEANS

by 

We live in a society obsessed with convenience, and that obsession has made plastic king. Though humankind has greatly benefited from plastic, the environmental costs of this reigning polymer may bring about our downfall. Traveling from land to sea in the wind or through waterways, plastic pollution is causing extensive damage to our marine life and giving life to one of the greatest ecological disasters of our times.

Plastic has been collecting in the marine environment since plastic production began in the 1950s — in fact, each square mile of the ocean contains more than 46,000 pieces of floating plasticEight million metric tons of plastics make their way into the ocean each year, hitching a ride on the currents and reaching the furthest corners of our seas — even turning up in the Antarctic wilderness. Simply put, the world’s oceans are becoming a toxic soup of plastic and other debris, and all life is being negatively affected.

Unfortunately, plastic doesn’t biodegrade — though it does eventually photodegrade (i.e., break down into smaller fragments by exposure to the sun). Photodegradation of plastic continues to the molecular level, yet photodegraded plastic remains a polymer. No matter how minute the pieces, they will always be plastic. Unlike naturally based paper or glass, they are not absorbed into or changed by natural processes — plastic never truly goes away.

Gyres and Garbage Patches

The majority of the plastic that enters the ocean every year ultimately sinks, harming life on the seabed. The rest finds itself caught up in gyres (large systems of circulating ocean currents), eventually cumulating in massive formations of trash called garbage patches. These patches are characterized as containing a higher concentration of plastic than surrounding oceans. As of 2017, a total of five patches have been discovered.

The most well known of the garbage patches is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch — a collective title for the Western and Eastern Pacific Garbage Patches created by the North Pacific gyre. Situated in the Central North Pacific Ocean, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches for hundreds of miles across the ocean. The patch is not stationary by any means; it shifts as much as a thousand miles to both the north and south.

Though the term “garbage patch” brings to mind the image of a large floating island of trash, it’s actually a bit of a misnomer. The lion’s share of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is composed of extremely high concentrations of plastic debris, suspended at or beneath the surface of the ocean. Despite its size and density, it’s not visible from the air due to its consistency. Unfortunately, that’s part of the problem. As filmmaker Jo Ruxton told CNN when she visited the location:

“This was much more insidious than a huge mountain of trash which could be physically removed. You can’t remove all the tiny pieces.”

The Effect on Marine Life

The horrifying impact of plastic pollution on marine life is well documented. A study from Greenpeace found that plastic pollution in the ocean has negatively affected at least 267 species worldwide, including 86 percent of all sea turtle species, 44 percent of all seabird species and 43 percent of all marine mammal species. Large pieces of plastic floating in the ocean are easily mistaken for food by seabirds, whales, dolphins and turtles. When plastic is ingested by these animals, it blocks their digestive tracts and gets lodged in their windpipes, cutting off or filling their stomach, which results in malnutrition, starvation and death. It also causes fatalities due to infection, drowning and entanglement. For instance:Seabirds that feed on the ocean surface tend to ingest plastic debris that floats. The adults then feed these items to their chicks, who then fail to thrive — and very often die. One study found that 98 percent of Laysan Albatross chicks had been fed plastic in some form.Multiple whales and dolphins have been found washed up on shores, their stomachs full of plastic bags and other debris.A startling amount of dead sea turtles — 50 to 80 percent — have been found to have ingested plastic debris.

  • About 640,000 tons of abandoned fishing netsare responsible for snaring and drowning thousands of marine animals per year, including seals, sea lions, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs and other creatures.

As plastic spends time in the ocean, it absorbs pollutants in the water around it. When photodegradation breaks it down into smaller and smaller pieces, it mingles with plankton and is eaten by fish and whales. The pollutants are then transferred into the tissues and organs of the animals, impacting everything from marine megafauna to lower trophic-level organisms.

The Effect on Humans

The plastic pollution in our oceans affects more than just marine animals and birds — it also has a serious impact on human life. Once plastic debris enters the water, its ability to absorb waterborne pollutants and fragment into microscopic pieces makes it incredibly dangerous. Though the pieces cannot be seen by the naked eye, they’re still there and still plastic. Since plastic is incapable of being absorbed into the natural system, it ends being up ingested by fish and zooplankton — and eventually makes its way to our plates.

recent study set out to see what effect this plastic was having on the food chain. Medaka, a species of fish, were fed three different diets.

  • The first group of medaka were fed regular fish food
  • The second group received a diet consisting of 10 percent “virgin” plastic (containing no pollutants)
  • The third group received a diet consisting of 10 percent plastic that had been immersed in the San Diego Bay for several months

When tested two months later, the fish on the marine plastic diet had much higher levels of persistent organic pollutants — and were more likely to have tumors and liver problems. Chelsea Rochman, author of the study and assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Toronto, explains, “We found that when the plastic interacts with the juices in the [fish’s] stomach, the chemicals come off of plastic and are transferred into the bloodstream or tissue.”

So what effect does this have on humans? The chemicals released when plastic breaks down — such as bisphenol A, styrene and PS oligomer — have been shown to cause hormone disruption and interfere with the reproductive systems of animals. Furthermore, high levels of bisphenol A are significantly associated with heart disease, diabetes, impotence and breast cancer.

What Can Be Done to Stop This?

Seeing that ocean plastic pollution ignores boundaries, monitoring it is slightly problematic. As it stands, China is the biggest plastic polluter, with Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam following close behind. Though these five countries account for 50 percent of the plastic pollution in the ocean, a collective global approach is the best way to combat the issue.

Though plastic pollution in the ocean can’t be cleaned up completely, large pieces of debris can be removed and recycled. The enormity of the problem has led a number of organizations to turn their attention to eco-innovation — using ocean plastics in products for everything from fashion to function. Parley for the Oceans, an organization dead set on ending plastic pollution once and for all, recently teamed up with Adidas to create both shoes and jerseys made almost entirely from recycled ocean plastic. Other brands confronting the plastic problem include Hamilton Perkins, which turns plastic bottles into designer bags, and Norton Point, which makes sustainable sunglasses from ocean plastic and plant-based materials.

However, to truly end plastic pollution, we have to prevent it from happening in the first place — and that means changing our habits. The amount of disposable plastic products being used daily has gotten completely out of hand. As a society, we need to stop using plastic bags, Styrofoam packaging and single-use plastic containers. If we refuse to use non-eco-friendly packaging, companies will stop manufacturing it. We also need to focus on controlling litter through public education, as well as working to fund cleanup of the streets and waterways to keep plastic from making its way to the ocean. Prevention is not only key — it’s cost-effective and better for the environment.

What You Can Do on a Personal Level

As any good eco-warrior knows, prevention starts at home. There are a number of ways you can avoid adding to the growing plastic pollution problem.

  • Stop using disposable plastics:The vast majority of the plastic products we encounter on a daily basis are used once and then thrown away. Think about it: grocery bags, disposable cutlery, straws, coffee cup lids — how many times do you use these things more than once? The best thing you can do is to replace these items with reusable versions. Bring your own bags to the store, carry a travel mug to the coffee shop, and stash silverware and a reusable water bottle in your bag.
  • Blacklist products that contain microbeads:Microbeads are found in beauty products from facial scrubs to toothpaste. Though these tiny plastic beads seem harmless, their size allows them to slip through filters at water-treatment plants and make it to the ocean — where they end up being eaten by fish. Use products that have natural exfoliants, like oatmeal, sugar or salt, instead.
  • Recycle, recycle, recycle:If you’re not sure what can go in the bin, check out this handy guide: The Ultimate Plastic Breakdown.
  • Advocate for a bag tax or ban:Encourage your elected officials to join multiple other cities and counties by introducing legislation that would make plastic bag use less worthwhile.
  • Insist manufacturers do better:Write a letter, make a phone call or contact companies via social media compelling your favorite companies to use eco-friendly packaging. If they brush you off, you can hit them where it really hurts and give your money to more-sustainable competitors.

So many of the attractive qualities that led us to this love affair with plastic are what makes it so dangerous for our oceans. As consumers, it’s our responsibility to know what goes into the products we buy, and to ensure our trash doesn’t end up in the ocean. Moreover, if we put our money where our heart is, corporations and producers will be forced to bend under the pressure and start manufacturing products that have less of a negative impact on our planet. If we start working together now, we may yet have a fighting chance to save our oceans.

********Body Fuel notes – We are committed to supporting Earth-friendly initiatives and thus the reason why we do our best to limit our plastic use.  Aside from packing bins with some plastic, we have never purchased a plastic check-out bag in the 12 years we’ve been in business.  We also do our best to re-use cardboard boxes that our suppliers ship to us in.  A concern for the earth is also the reason we recently adopted the “BIN TO BAG” MOVEMEMENT whereby we ask customers to transfer their bin contents to a re-usable bag.  WE KINDLY ASK THAT YOU BRING YOUR OWN REUSABLE BAGS AND RETURN THE ONES WEEKLY FOR RE-USE THAT WE’VE PROVIDED OVER THE PAST 2 MONTHS. THANK YOU TO TCU FINANCIAL FOR PROVIDING WELL OVER 200 REUSABLE BAGS AND SUPPORTING OUR EARTH FRIENDLY INITIATIVE!  SMALL CHANGE OVER TIME PRODUCES BIG RESULTS IF WE ALL COMMIT TO SMALL CHANGE TOGETHER!

As I await a very late produce truck (which was supposed to arrive yesterday at 8am…it’s a day and a half late) I feel my blood pressure start to rise, scattered concentration which circles around the 15+ windows I have open on my computer and I’m tending to be hyper sensitive to the time…and the amount of time we need to make up with every minute that passes with no produce truck!

April is also National Stress Awareness Month!   Unfortunately, stress is chronic and can be attributed to so many underlying health issues.  There are things that you can do to reduce your stress….and not every strategy works for everyone, but surely I can at least make you giggle and help along the way.  So here we have it….the Body Fuel inspired list of things that you can do today to reduce your stress!

  1.  Sing “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”!  If that doesn’t do it, add the odd pig-Latin word and see if that does it (here’s a translator site if you really decide this could be fun http://www.wordplays.com/pig-latin)
  2. Spend some time with someone that you like a lot….
  3. Go for a walk or get to the gym!  Take your ipod with you, find your favourite music and plug in.  Even 5 minutes is a good break to gain some perspective and “restart”.  Gemma and I got away for 45 minutes this afternoon to spend some time at the gym and at the very least, we laughed together!
  4. Daily Powerful Thought – Start your day off right with some powerful thoughts.  There are many sites online that will reflect your personal “style” and resonate with you.  Here’s a couple you may like :  http://www.healyourlife.com/daily-affimations/author/louise_l_hay  or http://greatday.com/
  5. Exercise in the morning!  Even 10 minutes will make a difference!  Ever hear of a Tabata workout?  Check it out.
  6. Get out your journal and write about what you’d like your day to be like.  Include as much detail as you can.  And end with a sentence or two about the things you are grateful for!
  7. Start your day with lemon water, NOT with coffee .  Rather than a cup of java,  1/2 a fresh lemon juiced in warm water
  8. For the times when you feel overwhelmed and anxious, keep some “Vitality – Relax” supplements handy. I keep them in my purse for the times that I can’t take a break, go for a walk or the other 7 strategies aren’t working.
  9. Essential Oils that are calming – Lavender, ‘Stress Away’, Frankincense, ‘Peace and Calm’.  Diffuse or put a little bit on!
  10. Pictures evoke good memories!  Keep some pictures of moments of happiness and joy on hand for those low moments.  Find a reason to laugh!
  11. Be present – keep your mind from jumping ahead or behind.  In this moment, all is perfect!
  12. Caffeine can make you anxious so find some alternatives.  OrGano Gold Coffee which is infused with Ganoderma (aka reishi mushroom) has been a steady in my life for many years and does not cause me to feel anxious as regular coffee does, yet it still gives me a lift!  If you can eliminate coffee altogether, find a herbal tea which you enjoy!  Alcohol, although it may seem like the answer, only perpetuates the problem.  Maybe some Kombucha would be a better idea!
  13. Eat well.  Don’t discount how food plays a role in either the creation or management of stress.  Sugar is not the answer when you are stressed.  Rather, whole foods will provide nourishment and long term nutritional support to keep you on track.  ORDER YOUR BIN and get some good food in your fridge!
  14. Our friend, Derek Henry, Holistic Health Coach and creator of Healingthebody.ca suggests some herbs to support stress management.  http://healingthebody.ca/healing-foods-and-herbs-for-stress-top-5/
  15. Ever hear of A Sensory Deprivation “Float”?  It’s the BEST stress management strategy I have….give Neurofitness in Regina a call and tell them your friends at Body Fuel sent you!
  16. Hang out with your pet.  My dog totally doesn’t “get” stress so who better to hang with than him!
  17. Yoga, guided meditation, a Gong Bath Ceremony or Crystal Bowl Ceremony might be up your alley!
  18. Adult Colouring Books or Creativity Journals are a great way to refocus or take your mind off the stressor.
  19. Talk to a professional.  If you stress is overwhelming you, take action to address it.
  20. Come hang with us at Body Fuel!  We’ll do our best to support you nutritionally and perhaps with a High Five, big smile or giggle!

Detox Menu for a Spring Cleanse

If you’re feeling sluggish or sub-par, refresh your body with a spring cleanse. Get started with this detox menu!

Regardless of how conscientious we are about our health and fitness, our bodies are under constant assault from pollutants. Many toxins are as close as the air we breathe—the Environmental Protection Agency tracks levels of 187 toxic air pollutants under the Clean Air Act—and the foods we eat, which routinely harbor additives, preservatives and pesticides. The personal choices we make, including our consumption of sugar, caffeine, alcohol and tobacco, can add to our toxin load.

Although our bodies are designed to efficiently eliminate toxins, the sheer volume of pollutants we encounter every day can tax our natural detoxification systems. It’s best to maintain a healthy diet and avoid toxins all the time, but if you’re looking for a spring jump start, try the whole-food detox menu below. Please note: Detox regimens are intended for short-term use. Always consult your health practitioner before changing your diet or health program, particularly if you have a pre-existing health condition.

Detox Menu

Promote healthy liver function by following this detox menu for a week. Supplement it with as much herbal tea as you like. (BODY FUEL NOTE – Try our favorite TEALIFE DETOX tea ) For convenience, steam many servings of vegetables ahead of time and save the vegetable water; it’s part of the menu.

Upon rising: Drink two glasses filtered water—one glass with half a lemon squeezed in.

Breakfast: Eat one piece organic fresh fruit such as apple, pear, banana, grapes (about a cup) or citrus fruit.

15 to 30 minutes later: Eat one bowl cooked organic whole grains, specifically millet, brown rice, amaranth, quinoa or buckwheat. Flavor grains with 2 tablespoons organic fruit juice for a sweet taste, or add a teaspoon of “Better Butter” (recipe below) with a little salt or tamari.

11 a.m.: Drink one to two cups veggie water, saved from steamed vegetables. Add sea salt or kelp and drink slowly.

Lunch (noon to 1 p.m.): Eat one to two medium bowls steamed organic vegetables such as potatoes, yams, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, asparagus, chard, kale and cabbage. Use a variety and include roots, stems and greens.

3 p.m.: Same as 11 a.m.

Dinner (5 to 6 p.m.): Same as lunch

Evening: Herbal teas only

Better Butter: Mix 1/2 cup cold-pressed flaxseed or olive oil into two room-temperature sticks of butter and refrigerate. Use 1 teaspoon per meal or a maximum of 3 teaspoons daily.

Note: You may feel mildly weak the first couple of days. This will pass. Clarity and vigor should appear by day three or four, if not before. If you feel overly weak or hungry, assess your water intake. If needed, eat a small portion (3 to 4 ounces) of protein in the midafternoon. Opt for low-mercury fish (find a list of “lowest in mercury” fish in EWG’s Fish List); free-range, organic chicken; or beans such as lentils or black beans.

9 Reasons To Keep Coconut Oil In Your Bathroom

http://thecoconutmama.com/9-reasons-to-keep-coconut-oil-in-your-bathroom/

BY THE COCONUT MAMA 

There are countless everyday uses for coconut oil. I use coconut oil in my cooking and in my homemade body care products. Here are 9 of my favorite uses for coconut oil in my bathroom (#1 is my favorite)!

I write a lot about using coconut oil in recipes but many don’t know of the benefits of using coconut oil outside of the kitchen.  We keep a jar of coconut oil in our bathroom always! Coconut oil is a wonderful skin moisturizer  as well as a leave in hair treatment. Below is a list of 9 ways our family uses coconut oil in the bathroom.

9 Reasons To Keep Coconut Oil In Your Bathroom

1. Oil Pulling

Have you swished with coconut oil? Oil pulling is a traditional way to cleanse the mouth of bacteria. Start your day with oil pulling by swishing a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth. Try to swish for at least 10 minutes. If you can, swish up to 20 minutes.

2. Carrier Oil

When I’m stressed or need to relax I mix a spoonful of coconut with a few drops of my favorite essential oils.

3. Shave Your Legs

That’s right! Coconut oil is a girl’s best friend when it comes to shaving. If you want baby soft legs, rub a small amount of coconut oil on your legs before shaving.

4. Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

Have you tried coconut oil for hair? It’s amazing! Coconut oil helps reduce protein loss when used as a pre or post treatment. I swing towards pre-treating my hair by adding a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the roots and work the oil down to the ends. I then leave the coconut oil on for an hour before rinsing.

5. Skin moisturizer

I use whipped coconut oil body butter almost daily! Coconut oil is known to help reduce scaring, stretch marks and prevent sagging skin. It’s a natural “miracle” cream! Try my whipped coconut oil body butter here.

 6. Rash and Burn Cream

Coconut oil helps to sooth rashes and burns. I’ve witnessed this when my children have had diaper rashes. A small dab of coconut oil has always helped to reduce and even eliminate diaper rash.

7. Eye Makeup Remover

Another wonderful reason to have coconut oil on hand in the bathroom is for removing makeup! Wash your face and then use coconut oil to remove the remaining eye makeup.

8. Cuticle Treatment

Coconut oil does wonders for your nails! Massage your finger nails and toe nails with it as often as you like to help keep rugged cuticles tame. The anti-fungal properties of coconut oil are also helpful for keeping  toes clear of fungal infections.

9. Frizz Tamer

Coconut oil is my go-to when I need to tame my daughters beautifully wild hair. Only use a small amount though. Too much coconut oil will leave your hair with an oily look.

Does Junk Food Slow Down Your Metabolism?

https://authoritynutrition.com/junk-food-and-metabolism/?utm_medium=standard&utm_source=notification

Your metabolism refers to all the chemical reactions that occur within your body.

Having a fast metabolism means that your body burns more calories.

On the other hand, having a slow metabolism means that your body burns fewer calories, making it more difficult to maintain or lose weight.

Some foods may increase your metabolism. But how does junk food affect it?

This article explores whether processed foods slow down your metabolism.

Asian Woman Holding French Fries

What Is Junk Food?

Junk food refers to highly processed foods that are generally high in calories, refined carbs and unhealthy fats. They’re also low in filling nutrients like protein and fiber.

Some examples include french fries, potato chips, sugary drinks and most pizzas.

Junk food is widely available, cheap and convenient. Also, it’s often heavily marketed, especially to children, and promoted with misleading health claims (1, 2, 3).

While it is tasty, it is usually not very filling and is easy to overeat.

Interestingly, junk food may also affect your brain in a very powerful way, especially when consumed often and in excessive amounts (4).

It may trigger a massive release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control your brain’s reward and pleasure center.

When your brain is flooded with dopamine in such unnatural amounts, it can cause food addiction in some people (5).

Summary: Junk food is inexpensive, low in nutrients and high in calories. It affects the reward center in your brain and may cause addictive behaviors in some people.

It Takes Less Energy to Digest Junk Food

Cheese Burger

It requires energy to digest, absorb and metabolize the food you eat.

This is referred to as the thermic effect of food (TEF), and it generally accounts for around 10% of your daily energy expenditure (6).

Metabolizing protein in food requires a lot more energy than metabolizing carbs or fat (6, 7).

In fact, eating a high-protein diet may cause your body to burn up to 100 more calories per day (8, 9, 10).

Furthermore, the degree to which foods are processed affects the TEF. It will generally be higher when you consume whole foods made of complex nutrients, compared to refined, processed junk foods.

To investigate this, one small study in 17 healthy people compared two sandwich meals that differed in their level of processing, but not their macronutrient composition or calorie content (11).

The study found those who consumed a whole grain sandwich with cheddar cheese burned twice as many calories digesting and metabolizing the meal than those who ate a sandwich made with refined grains and processed cheese.

While this study was small, the results indicate that processed food requires less energy to digest and metabolize than whole foods. This leads to fewer calories burned throughout the day, making weight loss and maintenance more difficult.

Summary: Metabolizing food requires energy, which is referred to as the thermic effect of food. Processed junk food requires less energy from your body to digest because it’s high in refined ingredients.

Junk Food May Cause Insulin Resistance

Blood Glucose Meter and Strips

Insulin resistance is when your body’s cells stop responding to the hormone insulin.

This can lead to higher blood sugar levels.

Insulin resistance is a major risk factor for metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and other serious diseases (12, 13, 14).

The consumption of processed foods has been associated with an increased risk of insulin resistance.

A small study in 12 healthy men reported changes in the ability of skeletal muscle to process glucose after only five days on a diet rich in fatty processed foods (15).

The researchers concluded that a diet comprised of high-fat junk foods may lead to insulin resistance in the long term.

Furthermore, the results of a 15-year study indicate that your risk of developing insulin resistance may double when you visit a fast food restaurant more than twice per week, compared to less frequently (16).

This implies that eating junk food on a regular basis may promote insulin resistance.

Summary: Consuming lots of processed junk food has been linked to an increased risk of insulin resistance, a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels.

Sugar-Sweetened Beverages May Slow Down Your Metabolism

Soft Drink in a Disposable Cup

Of all the junk foods out there, sugary drinks may very well be the worst for your body.

When consumed in excess, they may contribute to all sorts of health problems, including obesity, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes (17, 18, 19, 20).

These issues are mainly attributed to their high levels of fructose, a simple sugar primarily metabolized by the liver.

When you consume a lot of fructose, the liver may become overloaded and turn some of it into fat.

Sugar-based sweeteners like table sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup are around 50% fructose and commonly found in sugary drinks.

When consumed in large amounts in the form of added sugars, fructose may alter fullness signals, impair the response of the “hunger hormone” ghrelin after meals and promote fat storage around the belly (21, 22, 23).

Additionally, it may slow down your metabolism.

In one study, overweight and obese people consumed drinks that were sweetened with fructose and provided 25% of their daily calorie intakes. During a 10-week period, they experienced a significant drop in resting energy expenditure (24).

This suggests that the fructose in sugary drinks may decrease the number of calories you burn, at least when consumed in excess.

Summary: In addition to increasing your risk of all sorts of health problems, beverages high in sugar may also slow down your metabolism. These effects are attributed to their high fructose levels.

It’s Not Only About the Calories

Sugary Donut on a Scale

Decreasing your calorie intake is important if you want to lose weight.

However, the calorie content of your food isn’t the only thing that matters (25).

The quality of the foods you eat is just as important.

For example, eating 100 calories of french fries can have vastly different effects on your body than 100 calories of quinoa.

Most commercial french fries are high in unhealthy fats, refined carbs and salt, while quinoa is rich in protein, fiber and many vitamins (26).

First of all, you burn more calories metabolizing whole foods than junk foods. Also, you burn more calories by consuming high-protein foods, compared to foods high in unhealthy fats and refined carbs.

Moreover, high-protein foods may reduce your appetite, curb your cravings and impact hormones that regulate your weight (27).

Therefore, calories from whole foods like quinoa are usually more satiating than calories from processed junk foods like french fries.

Before you start restricting your calorie intake to lose weight, consider making better food choices and choosing more nutritious, high-quality foods.

Summary: A calorie isn’t a calorie. It’s important to focus on the quality of the calories you’re consuming, as some calories can reduce the number of calories you burn and negatively impact your hunger and hormone levels.

The Bottom Line

Consuming large amounts of junk food has metabolic consequences.

In fact, it may increase your risk of insulin resistance and reduce the number of calories you burn every day.

If you want to boost your metabolism, several strategies can help you do that.

To start, try including more high-protein foods in your diet, incorporating strength training into your regimen and getting plenty of high-quality sleep (28, 29, 30).

But most importantly, choose whole, single-ingredient foods whenever possible.

Nourishing Foods for the Brain…inspired by a trip to the Greeting Card Department!

-By Lana Van Dijk

I’m not a big fan of department stores.  I’m not really sure what it is that causes me to avoid them at all cost, but it’s one of those places that causes me major anxiety if I ever have to go into one.    I realized the latest trip when I was at a “said” department store, I found one “safe spot” department where I was “somewhat okay” with hiding out.

The greeting card department.  Morally, it doesn’t cause too many issues for me if I don’t think too deeply about the paper industry, the trees, deforestation, the birds….oh gosh, here we go again!  But if I grab a card in the “humorous” section, I can usually last a good 4.8 minutes, at least.

The last time I was in the card section, however, I found they all started to make me think more and more about health. Weird hey?

“It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer”.   I could wrap my head around that.

“Smile while you still have teeth”. Clearly haven’t heard of oil pulling

 “I just saw some ducks practicing their teenage girl faces”.  Ok, that’s just funny!

And then the last one put me over the edge.

“Of all the things that I have lost,  I miss my mind the most” –Mark Twain. 

I promptly marched out of the “said” store, without anything in hand (thank goodness I didn’t have to stand in line…it might have gotten worse!)….and decided that I must report in on how to NOURISH the BRAIN.

So, here you have it, Lana’s “Top 5 Brain Nourishing Foods” that you can find at any a good quality grocery store  (inspired by a greeting card, historical icon, an organic grocery store owner’s quirkiness, and an aversion to a department store”)

  1. Salmon – Wild Salmon (remember, choose a good quality salmon! Wild, not farmed, and Oceanwise Certified are all good choices….check out Skipper Otto for their quality Salmon products). Salmon is loaded in Omega 3 which is very nourishing for the brain.  Keep in mind (no pun intended) that the body is unable to make essential fatty acids so food or supplements are the only way to provide the body (and brain) with these building blocks.

 

  1. Cacao – No, I didn’t spell cocoa wrong! Cacao is the raw form of chocolate and has a very high antioxidant value when it’s kept in an unprocessed form.  You can purchase cacao nibs, cacao powder and add it to your smoothies or baking, or if you are looking for a brain nourishing treat, grab some high quality organic dark chocolate.   We just got some REALLY good stuff in  – the brand is Peruvian Harvest Organic Raw Criollo CACAO POWDER.

 

  1. Avocado – creamy, yummy, and very versatile. Avocado is a fruit that’s high in monounsaturated fats which help to nourish the brain.   Don’t miss our upcoming class on Thursday – “5 Thinks Avocado” with Brittany Reid.  Register soon!!!

 

  1. Nuts – Nuts are known to be high in Omega 3’s and Vitamin E, both essential for good brain health. Choose raw organic nuts. Not all nuts are created equal – read your packaging because many nuts are roasted in poor quality oil which decrease the health benefits altogether.   And if there’d be a nut that’s my favourite, I’d pick a walnut!  Not just because an organic raw walnut tastes outstanding, but also because walnuts contain Vitamin B6 which help with brain message transmission.  Don’t forget to soak and rinse your nuts!

 

  1. Dark Greens – fresh organic produce – like broccoli, spinach, kale, and collard to name just a few, are high in antioxidants but also rich in iron. Iron helps to bring oxygen to the body and, you guessed it, brain!  Those who are low in iron may feel tired and lethargic.  Since many of the dark greens are sprayed several times when grown conventionally, it’s always best to choose organic.  Kale is on sale this week too!

There are other foods too that are good for brain health, but I know that any of you who steps into Body Fuel, or any other health food store, will be able to easily choose one or all of these selections.  My goal is for all of us to outwit good old Mark Twain and keep our minds fresh, youthful and sharp for as long as we can.
