Over the long weekend, I found Sarah Wilson's new book "Simplicious". Really enjoyed sitting with a cuppa (after the kids went swimming) and reading through the ideas in this book.
I have the "I Quit Sugar" and "I Quit Sugar 4 Life" books, also by Sarah. Every book has helped my journey to taking back my health.
I know that many people are anti-quitting sugar and if that's you...ok, that's your choice and I respect that choice. Please respect my choice.
What I have learnt over the past months - our family has not had a major illness throughout the "flu" season in winter. We have hardly been near the chemist! We are eating better, more nutritious food, we don't go looking for sweet stuff as much. Actually one of my kids is having trouble eating very much sweet stuff (cakes, sweet biscuits etc) and eats more nutrient dense foods.
We feel better the more we eat food that feeds our bodies and gives energy. Kale (from our garden), spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, zucchini, celery, lettuce fresh meat from our wonderful local butcher, eggs from our chickens are foods we now look forward to.
I have to remember to have a small amount of sugar in the house for visitors...and then remember where to find it when they ask.
Everyone's journey is unique. But I want to make a difference - in myself, my family, my community.
Enjoy the journey!
