Refined sugar in junk food

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Nov 12, 2009

Each cube is a teaspoonful of sugar. (I wish the raw fruits and vegetables didn’t show sugar cubes, because the sugars in them are not refined and therefore so much better.)

  1. Thanks so much for the visual…I called my homeschoolers over to look and they were stunned. Since they help with cooking, they really understand about each cube being a teaspoon.

  2. Did you remove the pictures with raw fruits and veg? Maybe my computer is just psycho!

  3. And since sugar feeds cancer, we can see how we’re growing it…

  4. I’m going to use that for a class I am teaching tomorrow. I am teaching 16-18 year old girls about healthy food. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to focus on?

  6. Need help and very scared, I am at my lowest point ever in life, I’m a 40yr old mom of 2,with Rhematoid arthritis, medication almost killed me 2 yrs back and lost a baby, I’ can barely move and very tired, can this diet heal me, please…I want to play with the kids and live, my hands are bad and I am an artist, if I can’t paint I can’t…I just can’t yah know? Christmas is here, and I can’t play with the kids, I don’t want the kids to know that I am having it bad, but I need help, am I on the right path? are raw foods can heal, even people like me?

    Samantha, I would never make guarantees about “cures.” But we didn’t have degenerative disease until we had refined/processed/cooked food. And cultures that eat whole foods don’t get arthritis and other “modern” lifestyle diseases. I have heard hundreds of stories from my readers about a very broad base of health problems improving or even disappearing as they turned to greens, vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds as the basis of the diet. (In that order.) Wonderful things can happen when you nourish your body the way it was meant to be fueled.

    Much love,

    Robyn

Thanks Robyn for everything, you have healed my family and me 🙂 Hugs Samantha Merry Christmas

    Love your website. I came upon it looking for green smoothie recipes on the web. The comment I want to make has to do with the sugar cubes and fruit. There IS a big difference between getting your sugar from fruit vs added to foods. I don’t know if you have watched Robert Lustig’s program “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” (which you can easily google and Youtube) but he basically teaches how sugar is as bad for your liver as alcohol. He says that when God made the poison he also made the antidote which is fiber. Fruit has both. I would recommend anyone wanting incentive to kick the sugar habit to watch this program.
