DAIRY – is an inflammatory ingredient, can cause digestive problems, high in cholesterol and saturated fat, contributes to weight gain, and 3/4 of the world is intolerant to lactose found in dairy.
CORN STARCH – is genetically modified, it is considerably high in calories and contains almost no appreciable content of vitamins, minerals and protein.
REFINED SUGAR – high in calories with no essential nutrients.Chocolate chia seed pudding topped with coconut whipped cream, carob chips, and goji berries. runcooklaugh.com
