LABEL READING: CARBOHYDRATES AND SUGARS

First, I want to apologize that this blog has been delayed; I was writing the food plan book – it is nearly done – and my time got unmanageable. Let’s resume here though, with reading the label.

New Year Intentions and Changes

In the last blog, I talked about our goals for the New Year and how the things that will make us most happy are the things we struggle with the most.
