Know your sugars

One of the first thing I talk to people about when discussing managing fatigue is cut sugar right back. It’s hard to go sugar free, but not impossible. But cutting sugar is a good way to begin.  This is all very well if you know what sugar is. I tell people to read the labels and then I give them a list of the most common disguises sugar uses to sneak into your food.

The following article, from a trusted research source, plainly and excellently lays out the sugars to watch out for.

Well worth a read. Carry a note of the common and uncommon ones in your purse or wallet when you go shopping. Stop letting food manufacturers poison you!

Butter me up!

I bloomin’ love nut butters. I love them in stuff, on stuff or straight off the spoon.

Nuts and nut butters are a great go-to snack option for anyone trying to manage fatigue or blood sugar levels. So for effective management of chronic fatigue or diabetes, these should be in your cupboards and handbags/pockets (maybe just the nuts in your pockets, it could get a bit sticky with the butters).

I recently discovered walnut butter and used that in energy balls. It made a denser ball and was less sweet than almond or cashew butter but was still yummy. Here is a link to an easy peasy do it yourself nut butter recipe (or seed butter if you prefer). It can also be found in an article on nuts but I thought I’d post is separately as I didn’t want you to miss out.
