Milk and Cookies...If Santa eats them why cant we!?!
Merry Christmas Everyone!! From Adam & Arysta
A common misconception is that Milk and Cookies make you FAT! Well if you use the highest quality ingredients it actually can be very healthy to eat!!
Arysta asked me to touch on the important physiological reasons for including unprocessed sugar and butter in one's diet. Simple work has been completed on this reality for hundreds and even thousands of years in the nourishing foods and recipes worldwide. Grandmothers who have raised powerful and healthy families have favored brown sugar (which contains the molasses from the sugar cane) and butter in there traditional delicious recipes and meals.
Please consider the healing and informational Nourishing Traditions cookbook from the online webcart if your questioning 'what' legendary recipes, and how to use butter and sugar properly.
Two important physiological realities of the incredible human body:
1. The human brain is selective to only run on glucose. The human blood brain barrier prevents free fatty acids or complete proteins from absorbing directly into the brain, and subsequently can only utilize glucose to operate its trillions of functions. Now one sugar is a lot different than another! One must only select whole unprocessed sugar cane, brown sugar, molasses, raw honey, maple syrup, etc. Please realize that I am not suggesting any sugar consumption over a tiny amount as related to things like these cookies or a little bit in your morning latte! The causality of sugar destroying ones health and causing all sorts of problems is related to excessive consumption and the use of processed types. Please consider this article from PhD researcher of the endocrine system and progesterone on sugar vs. starch:
2. The human liver and especially the human endocrine glands (pituitary, hypothalamus, pineal, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, gonads, adrenals) are heavily dependant on saturated fat and glucose to operate properly. If your diet is void or extremely low on saturated fat and whole sugar sources then the long term reality is a severe dysfunction of the endocrine system and the liver. Even though anyone could cite a thousand articles citing that my words are not true, please investigate who designed the research article or wrote the summary, and also who it is funded by: if the major food companies, pharmaceutical giants are near the information your reading (and they usually are) then profit maximization through excessive consumption and drugs is the true goal of the research! Yikes! Also please remember to ask yourself, to assess the health and work of the person advising you. If you feel like the person who is advising you or who wrote that 'great book'/blog is still 'searching', simply at a middle point in their health quest, then don't take the advice; in fact if you feel that from me, then just ignore this post! I have posted a few links that will get you pointed into the truthful direction. Best to you and your journeys!
