Now, a year later, I no longer experience these horrible sensations. I am convinced it was the build-up of aspartame in my body.
This year I want to work toward healthier eating and exercise habits for my family. I'm on the lookout for lower fat, lower sugar recipes. I cannot have Nutra Sweet, but the rest of the family does not seem to be bothered by it. I would rather we just dejunk our bodies by learning to like less sweetened things, but that probably isn't going to happen. We'll see how it goes. I'll try to remember to report back now and then and let you know what sorts of recipes I find that help us get "on track."
Did any of you receive an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas? Well, you probably know how expensive those little mixes are to purchase. Don't despair, though! Recipe Zaar has 65 recipes to whip up your own mixes! Your little girl will love you for them. I'm thinking about printing off the recipes and stapling them together to give Amanda her very own cookbook.
Now, for this week's menu. I don't have healthy groceries this week so I'll have to make do with what I DO have. My husband requested french fries and hamburgers for later in the week. Ugh. The new resolution is going to be quite a challenge!
