Happy Saturday! I hope you all are having a great weekend so far!

So, you all know that I LOVE SUGAR.

However, I know that sugar has a bad affect on my digestive system, so I’m trying to cut out of my diet (along with the gluten, soy and pasteurized milk I’ve already cut out). However, what I didn’t realize is that sugar isn’t just at odds with my digestive system, it’s actually not good for anyone’s! And apparently, not just due to its empty calories and ability to cause obesity and type 2 diabetes.

I’d heard some things here and there about a debate around sugar being regulated, just like alcohol and tobacco, so I looked on my trusty Huffington Post, and sure enough there was an article: Toxic Sugar, Should We Regulate It Like Alcohol?

The article discusses a paper recently published in the journal Nature in which the scientists argue that all forms of sugar can be as dangerous as alcohol, with evidence that the way our bodies digest sugar is harmful to our health. One of the authors even has a lecture which has gone viral on YouTube, discussing how sugar is bad for health. It’s amazing that a video that’s almost an hour and a half long has gone viral! Let alone one about endrocrinology! Haha, yea science!

And I digress… In the paper, the scientists argue for implementing strategies such as “sugar taxes, placing age limits on food purchases and limiting advertising of sugar-sweetened foods.” I definitely want to watch this video if I get a chance, maybe it will help me with keeping sugar out of my diet! And we all know I can use all the help I can get…


Now, on to less serious things. Like Chipotle! Or perhaps, more serious?

So yesterday I was really craving a Mexican-style salad from Chipotle. I 100% blame Chelsey for this one. She mentioned Chipotle her blog and could not get it out of my head! I got on their website and took a look at what I would want to order (I could not stop thinking about it…) and then after figuring out what I would get, I realized that I could make the exact same thing myself!

I started out with some Romaine lettuce and chopped it up really well (that’s one thing I love about their lettuce, small pieces!) and then on top I added 1/2 cup of black beans, some roasted yellow cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and onions that I had roasted that morning, and then 2 heaping T of Trader Joe’s mild salsa, and 1 T of a new salsa that I found there today:

Avocado Salsa verde! I figured it was close enough to the guacamole I would have ordered at Chipotle. Here’s the salad all pretty:

And here’s the salad how I actually ate it, all mixed up!

It totally hit the spot! I had it with one of my Cinnamon Swirl Protein bars as well as a small mug of blueberries with Flax milk and a bit of cinnamon. Had to have some sweet too!


Do you ever re-create your favorite things from restaurants or fast food places?

What do you think about regulation of sugar? Do you notice sugar causing you problems like lack of energy or stomach bloating?
