Okay, so we know sugar is bad for us. What can one do when it’s lurking everywhere? Well, for starters – instead of going to the supermarket for ready made foods, go to the kitchen to create food that you will feel good about eating. I know, I know – there is so much already going on in life that making muffins from scratch and breads and meals seems like too much to ask. But it’s not about cutting out added sugar, just because. Nor is it about being Martha Stewart. It’s about your health. It’s about your quality of life. It’s about being here for a long, long time. Setting aside time in your day to throw a batch of muffins in the oven that will fuel your body instead of depleting its energy – is worth it. You’re worth and so is your family.
