Ingredients
  • 4 carrots (approx. 8 oz)
  • small head celery (approx. 24 oz)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 scarce tsp caraway seeds
  • 4 slices hearty rye bread
  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
