This Halloween…Be Sugar Smart!

Our media blitzed society, combined with the multi-billion dollar diet industry has […]

Walk away from the chocolates! Yes…Easter candy is in abundance and it is time to walk away! We’ve had our treats and it is time to get back on track! Pack it up! Take the candy off the counter, away from the candy dishes and get out your mini-ziplock baggies! Portion out your candy/treats into […]
