Added Sugars versus Natural Sugars

   



As many of you know, Mother Nature has added her own sweetness to vegetables, grains, dairy products, fruit and berries. these are called naturally occurring sugars. Even the lactose in milk is a natural sugar! 

   But when you get into table sugar, and even honey, they are empty calories meant to do one thing only, enhance the flavor of the food it is used on or in. 

   With fruit and berries, the flavor needs no enhancing because you not only have the sweetness of the fruit, but flavor, and a wide assortment of nutrients and vitamins available to benefit your diet.
For example, one serving of orange juice doesn't contain any added sugar, but has vitamin C, folate and potassium. 

   By the way, FYI, potassium levels are now part of the Nutrition Facts Panel of many products on store shelves today, including It's Just That Simple™ products. Potassium has now been proven to help prevent the side effects of too much sodium in ones diet.

   I am not touting stopping added sugars altogether, but use in moderation. For example, our $2 Sundae stands that can be seen everywhere this summer. We use regular vanilla ice cream that does have sugar in it. That doesn't mean that by adding our sugar free ice cream toppings negates the entire concept of enjoying our toppings, it is simply cutting the amount of added sugar in your diet, without missing it. And trust me, you WILL NOT miss it!

   And the worst offenders of added sugars being consumed daily? Men and adolescents! That's right, grown men just don't care about the sugar free products as much as women do. That is why most of the customers we meet are women who are contemplating our products for their children. It is time that men put aside whatever doubts they may have, and anything else that gets in the way of trying something new, especially after just one taste and they would NEVER know they weren't enjoying a product that has no added sugar and is good for them to boot. |And to you wives and girlfriends out there. If you have to treaty your other half the same way you treat your children(yes, there is too many funny refrains that one can add about that concept, all of which are true!)then just buy some of our products but don't let on they are good for him.

   Optimally, added sugars should only constitute about 10% of total calories of a 2000 calorie a day regimen. Even the American Heart Association guidelines recommend the same.

   Beware of processed foods as well, not just sweets. Look at the ingredient list. Any word that contains the ending "ose" should be a warning. Other names to look out for are high fructose corn syrup, molasses, cane sugar, raw sugar, corn sweetener, syrup, honey or certain fruit juice concentrates.

   You will, however, notice that we use fruit juice concentrates in many of our products, but ONLY those that do NOT contain sugar, as evidenced by our label.




   You truly need to be diligent about some products you purchase thinking "There CAN'T be any sugar in this". Everything from yogurt, especially yogurt that is being marketed to children, to pasta sauce to even soups and meats, believe it or not ,have added sugars. It has been discovered that nearly 70% of ALL processed foods have added sugar, according to the University of North Carolina in 2016. That is INSANE. No wonder the epidemic of blood sugar issues have skyrocketed the past few years. 

   So feel free to take a look at our labels and take a taste of our product line, which is expanding by leaps and bounds. In fact, the BEST Sweet and Sour Sauce for our children will be out soon and as with each of our products in the past, currently and in the future, we will NEVER EVER add sugar to ANYTHING.

Kinda Sad, Kinda Glad

SORRY EVERYONE. I MEANT TO ADD THIS POST TO MY OTHER BLOG, theyankeechef.blogspot.com BUT SOMEHOW I GOT ALL MIXED UP. I WAS GOING TO DELETE IT, BUT WHAT THE HEY! IT ADDED A LITTLE COLOR TO THIS PAGE.


Sad because summer is almost over and in ways, I am still waiting for it to arrive. Glad because I think I have used the AC a total of 5 days.

Yup, Labor Day, the last 'official' picnic/cookout day up here in the Northeast. this has been the oddest summer that I recall. 

But this crazy weather has not prevented us from firing up the grill and even taking our meals out on the deck to eat. These side dishes have been part of our menu for quite some time and I think they will be part of yours as well. Not your usual slaw and salad, these warm weather dishes should grace your table, be it picnic or dining room, all year long.


Fresh Butternut Salad with Cranberry Citrus Vinaigrette




This is one of those "salads" that tastes and satisfies as a hearty side dish. Wonderful flavor, filling without feeling guilty and perfectly suited for all times of year. Just a hint of protein is all this recipe needs to accomplish all this and more.

 

1 small butternut squash(about a pound)
2 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
1/2 cup crushed walnuts, pecans or your favorite nut
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese(about a half cup)
Salt and black pepper to taste
Cranberry Citrus Vinaigrette, recipe below


Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Cut the neck of the squash from the bulb, saving the bulb for another use. Peel the neck portion and cut in half lengthwise. Using a vegetable peeler, or mandolin if you have one, create long, thin ribbons of squash. Place ribbons in a large bowl. Cut sliced proscuitto into 2-inch segments and add to squash along with remainder of ingredients. Toss well, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving drizzled with Cranberry Citrus Vinaigrette.

For the vinaigrette, place 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup cranberry juice, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 teaspoon grated orange zest and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar in a blender or food processor and process until completely emulsified.

Enough for 3 servings.

 

 

Japanese Sweet Slaw



A gorgeous blend of colorful cabbage, carrots and squash and mixed into the tastiest blend of flavors you can add to coleslaw. A must serve at that final get together of the summer.

 
1(16-ounce)package shredded coleslaw mix
1/2 small butternut squash(about a pound)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon each lime juice and apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic in oil or garlic powder

 
Cut the neck of the squash from the bulb, saving the bulb for another use. Peel the neck portion and cut in half lengthwise, using only one half of the neck and keeping other half for another time.

Slice squash into thin "half moons" and then cut them into matchsticks. Add squash to coleslaw mix in a large bowl and set aside.

Put remainder of ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or into a blender and puree on high until well blended. Pour into coleslaw and mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

 

 

Bacon Cole Slaw, Southern Style



Now who doesn't like bacon? I know it seems cliché now, but when a little smoky saltiness is added with genuine Southern sweetness of peaches, you are bound to make this for the Holiday table that will be replacing the picnic table before you know it.



1(16-ounce)package shredded coleslaw mix
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons spicy mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
Salt to taste
1 firm white peach, peeled, pitted and diced(see NOTE)
4 slices smoked bacon, crumbled


It is as easy as putting the coleslaw mix in a large bowl; set aside. Add the next 6 ingredients in another bowl and whisk very well, adding salt to taste. Add to coleslaw mix along with peach and bacon and tossing and mixing well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

NOTE: I use a white peach because it is far less 'peachy' in flavor, but is a touch sweeter. By all means, buy a regular peach if desired.

Enough for 6-8 sides.
