It was a truly joyous occasion and we wish them both a full and happy life together.

Product of the Month – Viridian 7 Day Sugar Detox

Product of the Month Viridian 7 Day Sugar Detox

Sugar is the new smoking; it is addictive and linked to a wide range of serious health problems and, like cigarettes 20 years ago, there are no health warnings on high-sugar foods.  Sugar and refined carbohydrates from white bread, pasta, bakery items, cereals and sweetened beverages can disrupt your blood sugar balance over time. Another problem is that sugar makes healthy food taste worse, as our taste buds are conditioned to the sweetness of sugary foods.

Recently a sugar detox was found to be a very successful way to reduce sugar cravings (within a few days), reduce desire for sugary foods, and improve the taste of healthier alternatives. A sugar detox could be the start of your road to better energy levels, better mood and a whole list of other ‘betters’.

Viridian, the company we love for their ethical stance just as for their brilliantly effective products, have just brought out a great tool in the fight to change our sugary ways, The 7 Day Sugar Detox. The great thing is that it’s not just a product (although the combination of cinnamon and chromium that it contains probably is THE nutritional path to better blood sugar balance), it also comes with great support in the form of a free app which helps you track just how much sugar, much of it hidden in foods, you’re currently eating, how to make better food choices to support the supplement’s action and lots of information on just how refined carbohydrates are bad for your metabolism.

There’s even a suggested mealplan and recipes for each meal of the day, with many of them from, our friend of the store, Oliver McCabe’s Fuel Food Cookbook (Viridian and Oliver are now working closely together).  You can view the meal plans, recipes and shopping list here so there’s no guessing work!

We’re hugely behind this great new tool on the road to better health, so much so that’s we’re prepared to do it ourselves!  So make sure you keep an eye on our Facebook page to see how we’re getting on!  And at less than €10 for a week’s supply what have you got to lose (except low mood and energy and a few inches round the waistline maybe?).
