Daily Sugar Allowance: Take Control of your Health
Now that you are well into My Daily Sugar Allowance, I thought you might like some ideas on what to do with the left over sugar that is lurking in your pantry. Your kitchen contains some of Mother Nature’s best products!
A great way to build up a natural defense against the temptation for sugar is to include in your diet naturally sweet plant-based dishes. By feeding your body a bit of good-for-you sweetness here and there, you won't be as vulnerable to the allure of junk food. #sugarallowance
Exercise is one of the healthiest ways to experience better living through better brain chemistry. Regular moderate to vigorous exercise releases endorphins; and these ‘feel good’ hormones energise us as well as reduce our sugar cravings.
Breakfast and lunch are often consumed alone or on the go, dinner is the most likely meal of the day to be a group activity, with more social conventions, family patterns, end-of-day exhaustion and other distractions.

Before I share a few dinner recipes that Julie will be following this week, I thought I would cover a couple do’s and don’ts of dinner – just to get primed and ready for the good stuff! #sugar #health #diet #nutrition
