Ridgewood NJ, Spring has traditionally been known as the time to clean house and get a fresh and clean start. I like to include the body in spring cleaning as well.

It’s the season we should feel like eating light detoxifying food that will uplift our energy. Eating more nutrient-packed raw plant based vegan meals that clean the body from the fat that was accumulated during the winter time is what we should be doing.

I would like to inspire you to cook tasty and healthy meals at home on a daily basis. My goal is to explain the principles of detox cooking and will demonstrate how to cook 5 different dishes that are all delicious, nutritious and that anyone can easily prepare at home.

At the end of the class you will eat the dishes that were prepared and I will provide a print out with all the recipes.

Class will be held on Wednesday May 17, 2017
Place: Allergy Free and More
555 Goffle Road
Ridgewood, NJ
Time :6:30 -8:30
Price per person $45.00

Ridgewood Moms: The 10-Step Sugar Detox Plan For You And Your Children


May 17,2016

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, For adults who crave candy and ice cream almost as much as their children, the bad news on sugar continues to pour in.

Earlier this year, research into sugar’s deleterious effects showed a connection to cancer, heart disease and diabetes. More recently, the American Dental Association reminded parents just how bad sugar is for their children’s teeth.

“We think we’re so advanced in 2016, yet when it comes to health and a nutritious diet, many of us have a long way to go,” says nutritionist and juicing pioneer Cherie Calbom, who is known as “The Juice Lady.”

The good news for parents is they can ferret out the sugar-laden products that may be hidden in their and their children’s diets, and dedicate themselves to a healthy, sugar-free lifestyle, says Calbom, author of “The Juice Lady’s Sugar Knockout.” She offers her Sugar Addiction Quiz

Below is Calbom’s solution: a 10-step detox plan that parents can work on with their children to eliminate sugar in both their diets.

1. Avoid all sugar. If you can do it for 30 days, you can change your lifestyle. During this time, avoid even healthy sweeteners like honey, and substitutes, which overwhelm the taste buds.
2. Cut caffeine intake. There are multiple benefits to cutting back on your caffeine, including the temptation to use sugary creamers and accompanying sweets along with actually causing sugar cravings.
3. Skip foods that turn to sugar easily. This includes wheat and other grains, alcohol and starchy foods like white potatoes.
4. Enjoy healthy smoothies. Healthy smoothies that include dark leafy greens like kale or chard make you feel good in the long term and can help eliminate the urge for sugary snacks and excessive caffeine.
5. Power up with protein. Eggs, nuts, fish and other meats balance blood sugar and insulin.
6. Eat your veggies. Non-starchy vegetables provide your body with much-needed vitamins that also will cut your urge for unhealthy, sugary snacks.
7. Drink eight glasses of water a day. Sufficient pure water keeps you hydrated, reduces headaches and constipation, and flushes out toxins.
8. Supplement your diet. GTF chromium, L-Glutamine, B vitamins, Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin C assist your body in various ways to overcome sugar cravings.
9. Sleep well; sleep enough. Lack of sleep messes with your hormonal balance and contribute to feelings of hunger.
10. Fight sugar cravings with fat. Healthy fats like avocados and fish make you feel full and satisfied.

“Beware of sugar in places you might not have expected, like tomato sauces, salad dressing and marinades,” Calbom says. “Make a habit of studying labels.”
