Testimony of the Day

“Hi Maria,
It’s been about 6 months since I found you. What a great 6 months it’s been! I’m down 52.5 pounds. I was taking over 500 prescription and non-prescription pills a month for severe IBS, acid reflex, asthma, headaches etc. I had just turned 30 and was at my heaviest! I had been a long time “points” member, and was gaining weight while eating my whole grains and fruit by the pounds! Fruit doesn’t count as points you know!!! What a wake up call when I found your blog and became your client! I wanted to share some before and after pictures with you, although I am still a work in progress. Thanks again Maria, you have truly changed my life for the better.
Tanya”

Way to go Tanya! Keep up the great work!

bubble tea
I love this little tea shop called The Tea Garden. They serve something called “Bubble Tea.” The unique ingredient of Bubble Tea is tapioca pearls, but in this case I used Miracle Rice.

Tapioca pearls are about the size of pearls and they have a consistency like gummy candy; but Miracle Rice creates the same gummy texture. The big difference is in the nutritional value. The carbohydrates in tapioca pearls are starch where Miracle Rice is made from a fiber.

A typical “Bubble Tea” drink at The Tea Garden uses between 25 and 75 of these tapioca pearls, and each pearl contains 14 calories of pure starch. So that means that just the tapioca in the drink is hundreds of calories. And that’s without the sugar! Most “Bubble Teas” range from 400 – 1000 calories, depending on the size and the ingredients.
