We’re halfway there!
I’m struck by how many obstacles have come into our path as we’ve committed to eating only real, minimally processed, whole grain foods for 10 days. Just this evening, the ice cream truck rolled through the neighborhood, its pretty song drawing the children out to the street. This was on the heels of an afternoon lemonade stand, a Boy Scout event with sugary treats, and a snow cone celebration that have taunted us these last 48 hours.
But we’re holding strong, and my daughter finally got her “snow cone” when the pink lemonade popsicles I scrambled to make weren’t quite ready and she ate hers in the form of slush.

It’s amazing how addictive sugar is. Did you notice that every meal and snack on your list contains something sweet? It’s a hard habit to break! You’re doing a great job, keep up the good work!
I know – I’m definitely aware of how much maple syrup we’re going through! I’ll have to work on that.
