The Eleventh Day of Health & Wellness
On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me... sweet, sweet sugar ❤😉😋
#Christmas and the holidays certainly are a time when sugar is plentiful. From cookies to chocolates and all of those tasty drinks.

As we move forward into the #newyear, take steps to eliminate or reduce sugar or switch to natural alternatives. Your body will thank you❤

It’s suggested that women should have around 6 teaspoons of sugar a day and men, no more than 9. It’s hardly surprising that we have an onslaught of Diabetes.
There are more than 200 types of added sugars in processed food and drinks. Added sugars are included in 75% of products that are available in local supermarkets..."
