"People cannot change their habits without changing their way of thinking." -Marie Kondo in The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. This book is on my 2016 reading list. I enjoyed this blog post pointing out that this applies to our eating habits and nutrition beliefs too. 

Why it's so hard to cut back on on sugar (and what to do about it). A great post with some practical suggestions. 

I felt like this post was written for me this week: You Are Not a Victim, You're a Mom. I can totally relate to these feeling: "Your husband comes home from work late… and you’re the victim. Your children don’t like what you cooked for dinner… and you’re the victim...They are simply being children, and they need you to simply keep on being mom. Still, you’re overwhelmed because you’re feeling all the feelings. I know. So let me encourage you..., Roll with the punches and go with the flow today, in the midst of the messy mundane."

Recipe for a chocolate spread for fruit, pancakes, pita or eaten by the spoon. Sweetened with dates so it doesn't count toward the added sugar totals we are trying to cut down on. And it's easy!

Do you have an iPhone? Have you filled out the Medical ID that can be accessed even with a pass code lock on your phone? This gives emergency personnel access to designed emergency contacts and medical information in an emergency. It could save your life. Get details here.
