The Documentary also speaks about how Sugar is a form of drug and they say it is as good as any other Addictive drugs like Heroine . Food industry people are aware of this and that is why you will see a tonne of sugar added in Processed food. Well if at all you are reading this,please try and get a hold of this documentary and do watch, it is an amazing eye opener. It speaks about Sugar cravings, and how dieting is a quick fix, it is more relevant to the Western World where the Fast food industry is prevalent-the sad reality of the world that I live in is that Fast food costs much less than Home cooked, good food for eg-A Mc Donald Burger cost $ 1.39 , and I can't say I can make a home cooked nutritious food in that much amount of time. So the if you want to think short term, yes fast food is cheaper,HOWEVER-in the long run it is going to catch up-I also watched another Documentary "Super size me" but I will need to make another post on that.
Surely food for thought I'd say!
I am trying to curb my sugar cravings and so I decided to make a healthy dessert instead and here's what I made-
3-4 Dried Sweetened Cranberries
1Tbsp-Blanched and cut Almonds
1 Tbsp-Chocolate chips
2 Tsp-Chocolate syrup
Cut all the fruits and ingredients mix and enjoy!
I could not eat the whole bowl and had to share it with my son,with a total of 149 calories for two servings it sure was yummy in my Tummy!
