The other day I read the most interesting article about a family who gave up sugar in their diets for an entire year. I had never really thought about it before and I'm not sure why, but we really do eat way to much sugar in my family (me especially). I absolutely LOVE sugar. If you've ever been on my Instagram feed you have more than likely seen a photo of a sugar filled treat that was freshly coming out of my kitchen. This happens at least a couple of times a week. Like I said. . love me some sugar!
Despite our infatuation with sugar, I would consider my family as having a pretty good and healthy diet. We eat our fruits and veggies and have a well rounded diet. However, much like the author of this article, I too find myself without any energy on most days. My family, as you may have noticed, gets sick quite often too. After reading this article I was extremely intrigued and curious about what effects added sugar could really be having on MY family. So guess what? I have decided that I am going to give this sugar detox a try too.
