I recently got an e-mail from a friend about Dashing Dish that really encouraged me! In that e-mail there was something that she said that really stood out, which was this:
“America is so deceived (especially women) to look a certain size. Girls starve themselves or try the latest fad diet and end up binging because of the calorie restriction. Then they end up feeling guilty and worse than before they started dieting. It’s a vicious circle. I want to work to impart healthy eating habits among the young women in America. I want them to know who they are in Christ, not what the world says they are.” ~Danielle Frontiera
This statement is truly inspiring and straight to the heart of why I started this site to begin with! There are SO many myths out there about the latest ‘diet’, how to drop 10 pounds in a week, and what foods are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ for you. While I may not be an expert, I am someone who has tried many diets, fads, and unhealthy routes of losing weight, all to see that they backfire and end in failure.
This is a big debate/issue these days! We all know sugar is not the best thing for our bodies (or waistlines), but all those artificial sweeteners aren’t the best for our health either! (Of course they are both fine in moderation and I still use both in my recipes, but on an every day basis I like to use something a little more natural)…So what is a good option that won’t spike your blood sugar or add unnecessary chemicals to your diet?
