Okay, this week I am not so much writing a post for my blog as telling you to go visit another blog.
But do come back. I like you. I need you. You make me feel wanted.
Sugar. It’s the new tobacco. This year began with a new media bandwagon: suddenly sugar was the enemy. And not just white sugar in your tea and the obviously bad simple sugars in your chocolate bars and cakes, but the sugar in your mangoes and bananas, the sugar in your bread. It’s hiding. It’s hiding in food you thought was healthy and you’re eating it and it’s making you fat, tired and hungry for more sugar. It’s giving you wrinkles, causing diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
So I’m quitting sugar. Which is going to be interesting and make me rather an awkward dinner party guest.
I hope that anyone remotely interested in health has a little look at this website – I Quit Sugar.
Look how beautifully quitting sugar is laid out on this website!
It’s bright and colourful and makes me want to give up sugar – hurrah! Down with sugar!
Sarah Wilson, an Auzzie chick, gives you lots of recipes for a sugar free lifestyle choice:
Yum. Doesn’t she make giving up sugar look fun? I can’t wait to get started.
But what about my sweet tooth? I hear your sweet teeth cry. Fear not. Look at this:
Yes, that just happened. I’ve hyperlinked each picture to the actual recipe on her blog. Go forth and sack the sugar!
I’ll be talking about quitting sugar a lot over the coming months, with my progress and recipes. Sweet!
