there is nothing better than eating some yummy food on our back deck.
i made my first batch of homemade BBQ sauce. i got the recipe here.
no, i'm not quitting sugar, but rather educating myself.
i've always heard the term that sugar is more addicting than cocaine. really...how can it be? but after some investigating, i'm pretty sure it's true. i'm no scientist, health expert or doctor, but i do think we are addicted to sugar. why do i think this? take a look at everything you consume...sugar is in everything. i've spent the last couple of weeks really examining things i ate and i couldn't believe what i found. sugar in places that i thought they wouldn't be...salad dressing, sunflower seeds, plain yogurt, mayo, etc. it in everything! before reading this i would have said i ate a healthy diet, but now i've realized that i'm still consuming way too much sugar.
i'm not quitting sugar, however, i'm trying to eliminate sugar from things that really don't need sugar in them. my question is why do i need to buy mayo that has sugar in it? i've made my own mayo and it doesn't have sugar in it, but tastes just as good. Everything has sugar in it, but are we really aware of it???
what are your thoughts?
