Healthy Holiday

10 Apr

April 9 – Healthy Holiday

The contents of this fruit bowl filled up the Easter basket Dustin and I received from my parents. With the pictured fruit came strawberries, grapes, fiber bars and just a smidgen of chocolate.

It’s not the collection of peeps, Reece’s eggs, chocolate bunnies and jelly beans typically found in Easter baskets.

Dustin and I have been trying to cut back our sugar intake after an April 1, “60 Minutes” segment “Is sugar toxic?”, described the serious toll sugar can take on your health.

I love sugar. It’s not been an easy transition.

Just in the week we’ve been cutting back I feel healthier and I’m craving less sweets.

I would love to hear from you. Have you given up something you love such as sugar or caffeine for health reasons?

    I use to drink a can of soda a day and have been able to do without since August 2011- have one every once in a while now.
