October 31, 2019

If you’re looking for a recipe that will simultaneously satisfy your sweet tooth and your desire for something savory, look no further than this delectable banana pumpkin toast. This bright and delicious snack will help you kick that mid-day sugar craving for real and will also give you that little sweet something to curb your sweet tooth. It’s easy to whip up and uses simple, healthy ingredients you likely have on hand.

Why is sugar so bad for you?

Sugar perpetuates overall inflammation, dumps fat on your liver (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease); makes your cells resistant to the effects of insulin (insulin resistant); and then gives you metabolic syndrome, abdominal obesity, cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes. It also messes with your fertility.

There’s more. Medical research in the last decade has provided compelling evidence for the involvement of insulin resistance in cancer. While Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, is now viewed as a type of diet-induced diabetes (dubbed by doctors as Type 3 diabetes, or “Diabetes of the Brain”).

Watch this video to learn more about the effects of sugar consumption on brain health. I break down the negative side effects of sugar on brain health and share my top tips to help decrease sugar cravings and improve brain function and well being.

While sugar in small amounts is not a major concern, most of us are eating too much of the sweet stuff and could benefit from cutting back in the way we consume sugar and the type of sugar consumed as well. To help you cut down, we’ve created this satisfying toast recipe you can make the next time a craving for sugar hits.
