Diabetes and blood sugar issues affect more than 29 million people in the Unites States. Another 86 million people have pre-diabetes. While it’s a clear concern for many, many people – those that don’t suffer from diabetes also need to watch their sugar intake!
“…sugar is worse than nothing because it drains and leaches the body of precious vitamins and minerals through the demand its digestion, detoxification and elimination makes upon one's entire system.” (Global Healing Center)
Physical activity and a balanced, nutritious diet should be a top priority for us all.
Superfood, mesquite, is our go-to for aiding in blood sugar issues and prevention. Mesquite prevents spikes in blood sugar. Its natural sweetness comes from fructose, which helps maintain steady blood sugar levels.
Mesquite also has soluble fibers such as galactomannan gum, which takes four to six hours to digest, thus three times longer than digesting wheat or corn. This therefore keeps you fuller, longer!
Mesquite can be added to drinks and smoothies for a boost of sweetness and nutrition. It can also be used to add a classic sweet flavor to savory dishes, baked beans, and sauces such as Forager Mike’s Mesquite hot sauce!
Friends, we have good news. Even though you’re following a nutritious, low-carb diet to watch your sugar intake – you can still have pizza! Try out Mike’s recipe – see recipe here!
