Sugar Does Affect the Body

Although everything looks rosy when things are sweet, sugar may not always be beneficial to human health. As you may be well aware, too much sugar in your diet coupled with weak pancreatic functions in the body may lead to the development of diabetic conditions in a person. Aside from being prone to diabetes, too much sugar may have the following effects in the body:

  • Sugar makes you fat and overweight.
  • It potentially damages your teeth leading to decay and loss.
  • May cause sugar addiction. Your need to be happy may later lead to depressive conditions.
  • Become intensely moody due to the fluctuating effect of having high and low blood sugar levels.
  • It causes joint pains and inflammation in the body.
  • Your skin can age faster making you look significantly older.
  • You will have diminished liver, pancreas, kidney and sexual functions.
  • You will be prone to cardiovascular diseases.

Sugar Awareness Recommendations

To maintain good health, everyone is encouraged to take serious steps to minimize the daily intake of sugar. Some tips to avoid sugars on a daily basis are the following:

  • Limit intake of carbohydrates to less than 20 grams
  • Ensure to take only low glycemic carbohydrates.
  • Take proteins by at least 20 grams.
  • Consume only good fats/cholesterol like fish and avocados.

Keyword spinach rolls recipe, sugar awareness
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 2

Ingredients

  • 16 oz frozen spinach leaves
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 oz onions
  • 2 oz carrots
  • 1 oz low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz fat-free cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C).
  • Thaw the spinach and squeeze out the water (you can use a strainer). To speed up the thawing process, you can microwave the spinach for a few minutes.
  • Mix spinach, 2 eggs, mozzarella, garlic, half the salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  • Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Move the spinach mixture to the sheet and press it flat, about 10x12 inches in size and roughly ½ an inch thick.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. When done, set aside to cool on a rack. It will get the texture/look of a really thick seaweed mat (if you ever have sushi, you know what I’m talking about).
  • Don’t turn off the oven! You’ll need it again in a bit.
  • Finely chop onion and parsley. Grate the carrots.
  • Fry the onions for about a minute in a skillet with a little cooking spray.
  • Add carrots and parsley to the pan and let it simmer for about 2 min. Add cottage cheese, curry, chili, the other half of the salt, and pepper and mix briefly.
  • Take the skillet off the heat and add an egg. Mix it all together and spread the filling over the now cool spinach mat. Don’t spread it all the way to the corners, or it will spill out when you roll it up.
  • Carefully roll up the spinach mat and filling. Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Take out the roll and let it cool for 5-10 min before cutting it into slices and serving.

Notes

Just double or triple the ingredients for more servings. Be careful on the salt though and keep it at a minimum, do not double or triple according to servings.
