Do you snack? I do. A lot! This is a sampling of what I take to school every day.
Susan at Writing Straight from the Heart has commented many times on how I bake and eat sweets and yet keep my weight under control.
I do love my treats -- but they gotta be really, really good for me to dig in or it's just not worth it.
One of the best things about Sri Lanka is that fresh fruit is readily available everywhere you go.
The morning we left for the airport to head home, the chef at The Lavender House fixed us packets of fresh fruit for the road.
What a treat that was!
6 years ago, I lost about 30 pounds and felt so much better for having done so. I have been determined ever since to keep that weight off. I made a conscious decision to totally change my diet since heart disease runs in my family. My dad had bypass surgery when he was 45 years old. I just turned 45 on February 26th. All of his brothers and sisters had heart disease except one. Last year, I had a complete checkup and all my numbers were normal. I want to keep it that way.
