Cake or Kale?

Cake or Kale?

What do an icy driveway and New Year's Resolutions have in common?  Answer:  It's best to chip away at them. I cannot take credit for this joke, however, I saw value in the message and wanted to share it with you.

We are now a little over a month into the New Year. Did you set any resolutions? How are you doing with them?

I don’t know about you, but I find a New Year a great time to set new intentions. This year I decided I wanted to do a better job with sugar. Truth is, I am addicted to it! I have always loved dessert, and was never one to turn it down, but I find myself having moments when I crave it. No Bueno!

I consider myself to be a super healthy eater. I try to eat organic, local, wild caught and free range because what I put in my body matters to me. I feel at my best, physically and emotionally when I eat mostly veggies, meat and the occasional grain. However, I also have my moments, when I am craving something sweet or salty. I usually don’t buy them so when the craving hits I drink water instead telling myself I am just thirsty. When I can’t trick the craving away I begin to tear the cabinets apart to see what I can find. You all know the feeling!
