AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST

it’s been a while since we had a cookie recipe out there for you so we thought it’s about time to present you the Ascend Body Paleo Blackberry Cookies. As you know, most cookies are packed with a lot of industrial sugars when you buy them in a store. But even when you make them on your own a lot of recipes still require a ton of unnecessary carbs which will force your body to go on a blood sugar roller-coaster ride in the following frequency: Sugars in, blood sugar goes fast up, insulin has to get released which causes your body a lack of calcium (because we need calcium to use insulin in our body), the sugar get into your cells and the blood sugar drops down again. Unfortunately it doesn’t stay there because of the connection between our brain hormones and our digestive system: Sugars make you happy and you literately train your brain to get used to them as a fuel.
That being said, our main job is not to take away all the sugars for a couple of reasons, but we want to avoid the bumpy roller-coaster ride. That’s why we love blackberries so much: Because of their low glycemic index (which is nothing else than how fast or slow your blood sugar spikes and drops before and after insulin got released) and for the fact that they are generally low in sugars, they are the perfect treat. While a banana or grapes will let your energy drop faster than you can count to 10, blueberries will treat your body way better. The extra fiber will help your digestive tract as well. But here’s the best part of these little guys: They are super high in vitamin C and K and they also contain calcium (which will help you as well to avoid the problem from above). If we would have to mention one single vitamin to declare which is the most important, it would be vitamin C: It’s the number one protector against free radicals in the inter-cellular area, it is needed to activate enzymes inside of your liver which is absolutely necessary to detoxify, it keeps your eyes sharpened and studies have been shown that with the right amount of vitamin C we can reduce the risk for Alzheimer about 60%.
If that wouldn’t be enough, you also find a good amount of magnesium inside of it. Just this is enough reason to have blueberries inside of your diet because it’s by far the most important mineral and depended on over 42% of all reactions inside or our body.
To round all this up, we bring in some good amount of fat as a fuel. Remember: The more fat you eat, the more stable will be your energy. #fatdoesnotmakeyoufat
But now we won’t bother you any longer with a science behind a cookie. Let’s get to the point why you are here: Snack healthy with the Ascend Body Paleo Blackberry Cookies:
