Reducing/Eliminating Whole Grains Leads to a New Tummy Problem

on May 29, 2012

Reducing your whole grain and fibrous fruit & veggie intake can very quickly wreck havoc on your bowels… not fun to talk about, but it is absolutely vital for anybody to feel healthy.

I discovered cranberry juice cocktails (with lots of apple and grape juices mixed in) after my first week of going gluten free, and it helped a bunch.  Since apples and grapes are out of the picture now, all we have left is pure cranberry juice.

This particular variety of pure cranberry juice I found at my local specialty food store, and I must tell you upfront that it is not cheap… BUT!!!   You can still reap all the tummy benefits by diluting it with water and simple syrup.  That quart shown easily turns into a gallon for me (1 quart juice, 1 quart simple syrup or more to suite your taste buds, and 2 quarts water).  Plus we all need more water in our lives anyway 🙂

To Make: Combine equal parts Sugar & HOT Water and wait until all of the sugar dissolves. This is when the liquid becomes clear again.

I’m not sure if, like me, you got curious one Thanksgiving while making cranberry sauce and just had to see what a fresh cranberry tasted like…  BAD IDEA.  Tart, tart and more tart.

This cranberry juice is ALL JUICE, so it desperately needs sugar.  Simple syrup is super easy, and a must have for all Fructose Free Folks.
