I wasn’t going to reblog anything again today but I came across this post and as I am rethinking the way I eat, I thought I’d share it with you.
Having been raised on sugar on my bread, in my porridge and sweetened drinks and even sweetened medicine and toothpaste!-what were my parents thinking in the sixties and seventies?- the thought of omitting all refined sugar scares the living daylights out of me! My name is Sandra and I am a sweetaholic…
I have made baby steps toward less sugar: sweetener in my tea and eating yoghurt with granola in the morning (sweetener in the yoghurt but sadly still chocolate in the granola, although much better than bread and chocolate sprinkles), but more is needed.
I suffer from rheumatic pains in my joints and am overweight so, unless I want to be on painkillers all day-which I don’t – I will have to start thinking about my diet and how it can contribute in feeling better.
I have started with no longer drinking soda’s. At the moment I replace them with orange juice from the shop, but I will be going fresh next week (after market day) and every afternoon I eat a banana dipped in cinnamon as cinnamon is beneficial.
Next I will be looking at other foods and vitamins and supplements.
But this post got me thinking about my sugar intake and how it may affect my health at the moment.
I’ll keep you posted about what changes I will make and how I feel.
Have a lovely day
