Now if you haven’t heard about this kind of information before it will no doubt come as a big surprise to hear that fat and not sugar is the real culprit when it comes to blood sugar issues.
And how about this: over the last 5 years of us coaching people on a low fat plant based diet, every single person we have worked with who had blood sugar issues was able to stabilise their blood sugar levels within a very short space of time on a low fat high fruit diet.
And guess what? You can too, and without any fruit sugar restriction!
It’s time for another funky what our vegan kid ate today video!

Durian is currently in season, plus we also show you our trip to the local market.
What our vegan kid ate today — mango stew recipe
Now, it must be said that — not every kid enjoys eating their greens. Elanie’s the opposite and she loves to munch on them, especially lettuce and spinach.
The other day I quickly blended some tomatoes and greens together because I was in a rush and simply didn’t have the time to spend chewing a large salad of greens. Well, Elanie ate some of my blended green soup and said it was “delicious.”
She has always eaten simply since the day she started eating solids, so her tastes and preferences will be different to children who have been exposed to stimulating and processed foods that are loaded with salt, sugar and additives to intensify their flavour.
Yet your children absolutely need a diversity of health promoting nutrients, so adding raw foods becomes vital for their development.
So this mango stew recipe is very simple to make, yet super delicious and personally we love it. Go on and give it a try and see if you and your kids will like it too!

When you are naturally lean and healthy, you don’t normally concern yourself with how your metabolism is doing. But if you start to put on extra weight, then the word metabolism will almost certainly find its way into your vocabulary.
Here is a video about how to boost your metabolism to burn more body fat:
Generally speaking, metabolism refers to how quickly or slowly your body burns energy, or calories, and how this then affects your weight.
As you get older, the hormone levels in your body starts to decline and this can have a big impact on your bodily functions, including how your body stores and loses fat, which will affect your weight.
True, you can’t change your age, but there are many factors that are under your control when it comes to metabolism.
How to boost metabolism to burn more body fat.
The first step to boosting your metabolism is by balancing your gut health.
“All disease begins in the gut”, said Hippocrates.
The human gut is also known as the second brain. It’s not just involved in the digestion of what you eat and drink, but also other critical functions, such as the immune system and the nurturing of healthy gut bacteria that serve a wide range of functions in the human body.
These functions will include the ability to absorb nutrients, help regulate your hormones, assist your body in natural detoxification and even affect your mental health.
So as you can appreciate, keeping your diet naturally cleansing, which means eating vegan and centering around the consumption of raw fruits, greens and other veggies, as well as eating simply and following food combining rules can greatly aid the restoration of your gut health.
In our latest video, I will also go into 5 other important areas to help you boost your metabolism so you can release that stubborn weight you might still be holding to.
