Sugar came onto the scene in the early 1600s and was considered a prize commodity--only the wealthy could afford it just like sea salt and pineapples. (See blog post for the story of the pineapple.)
•
Natural, raw cane sugar contains an important trace mineral from the soil it is grown in, chromium. When we refine sugar and strip it of the chromium we deplete an important nutritional component of a whole food and impair our bodies ability to utilize sugar efficiently.

This story just blows me away!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Check out Noelle’s story:
“I get a lot of questions about how I stay motivated and on track. Honest answer, I was done with being unhealthy. I had abused my body with food for years and it was time to learn to love Noelle again. It took awhile but once I started to love myself, there was no going back. Sharing my journey publicly has helped tremendously. I made sure to share my struggles with people who care about me. Natural thing to do is hide our vices because we’re ashamed. But I’ve found that, more often than not, people are excited for you, and will be there to support you and help you any way they can.

Be sure to speak kindly to yourself 💕 Expecting perfection is setting yourself up for failure. When you allow yourself to be imperfect, you will find it easier to make the right choices.

I hope that if you are someone struggling, this will inspire you in some small way. It’s not an easy journey but it is so worth it in the end. Stay focused and celebrate the little milestones.” Wow!! Noelle is truly amazing!! Big change just requires the choice to start. It might be scary to try again, trust me, I know before this I tried so many things, but this program was so different. I would love to walk alongside you as you learn healthy habits and transform your life!  #nothernutahhealthcoach #healthcoach #hashimotos #diabetesprevention #autoimmunedisease #ms

Morning walk with my daughter & neighbor 🚶🏻‍♀️fruits & nuts with breffest. Yumm 😋🤣Helping my daughter stay active everyday has helped me as well 👍🏻😁#winwin She's down 3.6 pounds in a week and I'm down 3.8 pounds since starting #whole30 12 days ago (the most I've lost in a LONG time, my body has been fighting getting past a certain weight for over a year. I'll get there then hop back up 😖) Anyway, I'm so proud of her. We all know this process isn't easy. I remember being emotional during exercise when I started. It's all part of the process. I remind her to keep going, it will get better. She will feel better and then the motivation to exercise will come naturally. Motivation and consistency are THE HARDEST PART 😜#keepmovingforward #walkwalkwalk #moveyourbodyeveryday #stayactive #diabetesprevention #lovemydaughter #fitnessjourney

Just roasted this lot to make a base sauce for a curry with the homegrown marrow and a meat bolognese for the meat eaters. 😊. I.ll blend them with herbs and the sauce would keep for 4 or 5 days in the fridge.Great way to avoid sugar that shop bought jars are loaded with.Less than an hour to prepare..

I learned so much from our Diabetes in Indian Country Conference. It's a great feeling to know I am a member of a team who is making a positive difference in the treatment and prevention of diabetes in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. #sdpi2017 #diabetesconference #ihs #hhs #diabetesprevention #aian #indianhealthservice #albuquerque #senseofpurpose
If you guys dont already know, I teach Diabetes Prevention classes through the YMCA. It's a year-long program, encouraging lots of healthy lifestyle changes, with the goal of taking prediabetic patients and preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Last night was the last session of the first class I began coaching. I had three participants in that class, and in total they lost: ✖75 pounds total
✖six clothing sizes, plus two resizings for a bullet proof vest (police officer)
✖eight belt notches

All three of them are off high blood pressure medication, one is off a heart medication, and most importantly, all three of their fasting blood glucose numbers were within the normal range. They are no longer prediabetic.

It feels pretty good to be part of such an important program... I really feel like I'm making a difference in people's lives! #ymca #diabetesprevention #cdc

🙃sometimes I like coffee- but I am trying to avoid it. I am waiting for the tea shop in town to get more #purerhtea in. It's AMAZIN-  Me and My Love Lurb like to call it "Crack Tea" becuse it is so strong!😲 but it doesn't give a crash like coffee does. 🤗AND I like it without any cream and sugar so its WAY better than sprucing up a cup of joe☺
💙Although when I need that extra #caffeine and cave in on coffee  i choose a non dairy creamer and a #lowglycemic sugar such as this #masarang sugar. The reason I am picky on my sugar choice is because the crash that later comes from drinking coffee is also usually due to the use of sugar in the drink. so to avoid that stay away from over sugary options an choose your health over all🤘
😎And you know i like to get my vitamins in everyday and one way to do that is by taking #highvitaminbutteroil😘 this is one of the 4 supplements I take on the daily.

Halotop Cinn Roll was too sweet for me & at 8g of sugar per serving I wouldn't buy again.

OMG this couldn't have come up at a better time! After having a binge fest from Friday-Monday (binge free 2 days 🙆‍♀️🙏), this #100daychallenge is exactly what I need right now for some #accountability 💖 
My food goal for the next 100 days is to be binge free, with no more carb cheats and to remain strictly low carb/keto (except for Christmas dinner at the parentals because mommas cooking is BOMB 😍🤣😍 but that's the only time). And my fitness goal is to workout 3 times a week because I've seriously procrastinated on getting on the workout bandwagon long enough 🙈🙈🙈 so since there's 14 weeks (and a couple of days) left before 2018 is here that makes for 42 workouts before the year ends (14 weeks × 3/week=42 🤣😂). Let's do this 💪🙆‍♀️🙏

Attended an eye opening plenary session on Early Life Intervention for Decreasing Diabetes Risk. I learned risk for obesity and other health problems have been shown to start very early in life, even before birth! It is important to find ways to intervene successfully to reduce risk. #sdpi2017 #diabetesprevention #earlylifeintervention #reducerisk #allisonbarlow #familyspirit

RUS⏬⏬⏬ Chicory⚕️
Do you like chicory drink 🍵? If not, after reading this, you'll want to drink it more often :) The popularity of chicory was due to its unique composition. It is used in medicine, cooking and as a substitute for coffee. It brought my attention because it  is successfully used in the prevention and treatment of diabetes and in the fight against excess weight.

Substances contained in chicory have the effect:
✅antimicrobial (decoctions, tinctures, compresses from the root of chicory) ✅anti-inflammatory (decoction of herbs used inside and externally in the form of lotions)
✅ sedative (thanks to the group B vitamins included in it)
✅diuretic (used in the treatment of kidneys, with kidney stones, with diseases of the bladder, with high blood pressure this property will be useful, but with the  low blood pressure it is better to avoid chicory - it can lower the pressure even more)
✅ choleretic (speeds up the process of dissolution of stones in the gallbladder)
✅ vasodilator (chicory drink is useful for hypertensive patients)

Chicory used for treatment:
⚫diabetes (high inulin content leads to a decrease in blood sugar)
⚫ obesity (inulin improves the metabolism of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood phospholipids, normalizes metabolism, lowers blood sugar levels)
⚫Gastrointestinal diseases (substances contained in chicory reduce the inflammatory processes of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, inulin improves digestion, promotes the development of useful intestinal microflora - this is a natural PREBIOTIC)
⚫ cardiovascular diseases (chicory has a sedative effect on nervous systemNS, intibine in chicory improves heart function and strengthens blood vessels, inulin reduces the risk of CVD)
⚫ liver disease (improves liver function - can increase blood flow and metabolic processes in the liver). ❌Chicory is contraindicated in children under 3 years old. Do not combine chicory with antibiotics, do not take in case of bronchial asthma.
In other cases - enjoy the chicory and use its healing properties to the fullest.

**Life changing!!**
I recently watched this state of mind altering film that discusses the industrial and commercial aspects of the American food industry. What is healthy? You may be under the wrong impression due to millions of dollars of tricky marketing. What is causing heart disease? Cancer? Diabetes? Learn the truth.
You can catch this documentary on Netflix. Thank me later.

It is day three of the #TransformYourLunch Challenge! Today's tip: Don't sit at your desk and eat. Eating at your computer leads to mindless eating. Instead, get outside and breathe in some fresh air and soak up some Vitamin D. It will make your lunch hour much more enjoyable! And since you're not waiting in line at the cafeteria or buying food at a restaurant, you'll have more time to relax!
.
Challenge Rules:
.
1)  Bring your lunch to work on Monday-Friday, September 18th-22nd or make a balanced lunch at home if you work from home or are retired.
.
2)  Keep your plate balanced with ½ vegetables/fruit, ¼ protein and ¼ healthy carbs!
.
3)  Post a picture of one (or more) of your balanced lunches on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages using the hashtag #TransformYourLunch and Make Sure to Tag our Accounts in your post. Instagram: @bluemesahealthtransform Twitter: @TransformBMH Facebook: @transformbmh Tagging Blue Mesa Health Transform in your post will allow you the chance to be selected as a finalist.
.
4) Top photos will be posted on Friday for you to vote! .

I love the coffee cup I grabbed today! 
Hershey's four food groups sound delightful! 🍎🍫 As I mentioned in my video, for anyone watching their waistlines and sugar intake and would still like to drink cool and tasty drinks- you can! 
Simply watch your add ins and amounts! 
I made a pumpkin spice flavored K cup, added a teaspoon of Hershey unsweet cocoa powder (antioxidants), a dash of stevia, and today, a tablespoon of low fat milk. 
I also love almond and soy milk! 
Avoid empty calories  and unnecessary sugar with small adjustments like:
One less spoonful of sugar!
Try alternative sweetener!
Low fat milk instead of whole!
Dash of cinnamon to lower sugar levels!
Try black! It's not that bad!

Little switches make HUGE differences!

Have a terrific and tasty Tuesday everyone!

It is day two of the #TransformYourLunch Challenge and National #HealthyLunchDay ! Today's tip: Eating out can take a big hit on your wallet. If you spend $10 a day, that adds up to $200 a month or $2400 a year! To make it easier, do some advance prep the night (or weekend) before. By cooking food in bulk and packaging containers for the week, it makes it easy to grab in the morning on your way out the door! .
Challenge Rules:
.
1)  Bring your lunch to work on Monday-Friday, September 18th-22nd or make a balanced lunch at home if you work from home or are retired.
.
2)  Keep your plate balanced with ½ vegetables/fruit, ¼ protein and ¼ healthy carbs!

This is why I dont count calories! Dr. Jason Fung defending his hormonal obesity theory against the calories in/out theory. He also talks about a study showing Keto & Fasting  doesnt slow your metabolism and how it helps with long term weight loss. Definite must!

Goal: keep insulin low to burn fat for energy

So after I have thrown away my third full container of Greek yogurt, I give up! 
I accept the fact that I'm never gonna put it in my own container and I'm buying these single serve containers now.

Perfect portion size at 5 oz, organic plain Greek yogurt with only 6 grams of sugar. Always gotta look at the sugar content of yogurt because it can vary a LOT! 
Research says we should get no more than 10% of our calories from sugar yet we tend to do about triple that in America. Hello diabetes epidemic! 
Hope this is a helpful tip for you, if so, please like and share! #fitspo #motivationmonday #cleaneating #organic #weightloss #healthybreakfast #greekyogurt #mediterraneandiet #m3 #mompreneur #skinny #gettinglean #thinspiration #cleaneatingtips #diabeticdiet #diabetesprevention #diabetic

I was on the struggle bus today. The lesson last night hit home for me in so many ways! I've struggled with loving myself for as long as I can remember. Hating my body for being less than feminine, the PCOS I struggle with that makes fat loss so difficult. Deep seated Feelings of unworthiness related to being adopted despite having had loving adoptive parents. Today is the first day I have really realized how much I have been holding myself back and not loving or living to my fullest potential. I can now see the glimmer of my being worthy of good things! #maketheshift #shiftshop #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcosfighter #pcosawareness #weightloss #strongnotskinny #weightlossjourney #fitover40 #fitnessgoals #fitness #fatloss #girlsthatlift #girlswhosquat #goaldigger #paleo #primal #lowcarb #progress #lowcarbhighfat #strengthtraining #bodypositive #nurselife #diabetesprevention #healthylife #agility #momof2 #boymom

Squats from earlier this week. 3x6 at 65kg (up by 5kg vs last weeks). Felt great even though I was mid night shifts

My body has been feeling pretty damn good lately attributable to moving more, good rehab / warm up/activation exercises I have been following. Hoping to just add 1 brick per week.

With cooler temps here, it is the perfect time to get outside and go on a hike. To prevent Type 2 Diabetes, 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week makes a big impact! Being out in nature and away from the chaos of your daily life can also allow you to connect to yourself and improve your overall sense of well-being.

I'm going to just say this: PCOS sucks! There I said it! I hate that I've had to deal with this crap for nearly 30 years now.  I struggle with self-love and body image constantly. I hate that while others who put in the same amount of effort and clean eating looses2 lbs fat per week and I'm lucky to loose half a pound. I try so freaking hard not to compare my journey to others' but it is HARD! 
Today has been hard for me so far. I started my period yesterday, am bloated AF, cramping, and tired. -----insert sound of screeching tires here------ Wait just a sec! While I was in my moments of self-pity and hate, I thought. Hey you silly you're GETTING YOUR FREAKING PERIOD! On a regular basis every 29-33 days. Before this journey I was lucky to get a period every 3-4 months when I was at my unhealthiest weight facing diabetes. .Look at how you're performance is improving in your workouts! Look how strong I look! I am starting to find the positives easier and faster! I still have image issues. Do I think I look good naked? Heck no  not yet but I'm a work in progress. A glorious WIP. 
Don't let your negative self-talk dictate you're actions. Force yourself to find at least 3 positives. Keep going. Don't stop. You'll get there! #shiftshop #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcosfighter #pcosawareness #weightloss #strongnotskinny #weightlossjourney #fitover40 #fitnessgoals #fitness #fatloss #girlsthatlift #girlswhosquat #goaldigger #paleo #primal #lowcarb #progress #lowcarbhighfat #strengthtraining #bodypositive #nurselife #diabetesprevention #healthylife #agility  #boymom #beachbody #maketheshift #selflove
