Sugar is a hot topic right now, with the World Health Organisation stating the health benefits from halving their recommended daily sugar intake to six teaspoons per day.
But what do we recognise as sugar?
Sometimes it’s obvious – the cakes and sugary sodas we know we shouldn’t be eating!
But it can be less obvious when it’s hidden away inside low-fat foods and even products that we assume are healthy.
For me and my clients, the story doesn’t end there… because baddies can be very stealthy! Watch my video to learn what I’m talking about…
Yup. There are other foods that have similar effects on our body as sugar, but do not fall under the sugar umbrella – the Ninja Foods
But they are often more harmful simply because we are less aware of their unhealthy properties and keep consuming them.
If you’re wondering whether these ‘Ninja’ foods are affecting your health – causing high blood sugar; fat storage; low energy; digestive disturbances and even auto-immune disorders such as celiac disease, food intolerances, hashimoto’s, arthritis, etc., use my Sugar Baddies Test when you’re making food choices.
Are you allowing Ninjas to infiltrate your shopping trolley?
Are they secretly affecting your health goals?

Try these simple alternatives to pasta and bread and kick those ninjas out the door!
This is such a quick dish to rustle up for lunch, with just a few flavourful ingredients making a big impact.

You can make this in advance and store it in the fridge or freezer for those moments when you just want bread! This will actually balance your blood sugars instead of spiking them.
