Somewhere along the way, I forgot that sugar is what fattens us (because of the insulin release). If fat isn't present in what we eat, the sugar fattens us more. So drinking skim milk isn't the way to get skinny! And drinking coffee with honey and skim milk isn't some great substitute for cookies (or other desserts)! Are the ingredients more nutritious than the flour and sugar that have been stripped of their nutrients, plus whatever inexpensive fats and other poor ingredients they've chosen to use in the cookies? I'd bet they are, but they both have a negative effect in different ways.
Two other key points I learned:
- Cilantro and parsley are cleansing foods. That's awesome! Now I want to find recipes that call for bunches of those!
- MSG has about 50 other names and experiments have proven that it fattens mice. Check this article: MSG and Fat Rats and Us. [A phenomenal article!]
I am now a whole milk drinker. Cathy should be proud.
