So far in the series we’ve learned that too much sugar can have some serious health risks. However, there are plenty of ways to optimize blood sugar levels such as eating more fiber or moving after a meal.
Insulin is a hormone that helps our cells absorb sugar. It is when the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or our cells continue to be resistant to insulin, that we can become at risk of developing prediabetes.
A Well Balanced diet that contains adequate fiber, water, and diversity helps alleviate diarrhea or constipation. However, things like toileting posture and muscle relaxation are equally as important as nutrition.

In the first episode of Cooking With Chef Christy, she shows us how to make pineapple upside-down cake with a few twists!
Instead of white flour, she uses coconut flour which contains more fiber and is great for those avoiding wheat. She also uses coconut sugar rather than white table sugar which has a slightly lower glycemic index.
Because of those swaps, this version of pineapple upside down cake has fewer calories and carbohydrates and higher fiber and protein than its more traditional counterpart.
Another cool thing, this recipe comes together much quicker than a traditional upside-down cake.
