My name is Chrissie
and I am addicted to
(And no, I'm not kidding)
While we've been at the beach our eating habits have gone from okay to worse. My children have been eating fortified sugar cereals almost every morning for 2-3 weeks. I know, I know, bad mommy. When I woke up this morning and made them eggs and toast they threw a fit!
I won't even go into some of the snacks they've been enjoying. Let's just say they weren't top quality. I made them this chart and hung it on the fridge today. So far it's gone over pretty well. Feel free to print one out if you need or would like to.
I bought this book last weekend for 50 cents. I was surprized at much I liked it and learned from it. We are a family that is addicted to sugar. We have to change it!
Here is an excerpt from the book:
"Sugar has been blamed for hyperactivity, diabetes, hypoglycemia, severe mood swings, decreased brain function, serious digestion problems, yeast infections, obesity, and tooth decay. It depletes your body of all the B vitamins. It leaches calcium from your hair, bones, blood, and teeth, and interferes with the absorption of calcium, protein, and other important minerals in the body, and retards the growth of valuable intestinal bacteria."
Anyone have any advice for me? Should I try to quit cold turkey? Try limiting it? My husband and I are ready for a change and want to be good eating role models for our kids.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!
