sugarlips1.jpgWhen you lead a relatively disciplined lifestyle – no smoking, no drinking, no meat, no…. well you get it – so, as I was saying, when you give up all manner of sinful excess, it’s easy to feel entitled to a little sweet treat now and then.

You know, the delicious melt of dark chocolate Kisses on the roof of your mouth.  The happy little hum that accompanies a bowlful of Ben and Jerry’s fat-free-if-you-please Fro-Yo.  The utter creativity of a few strawberries dipped in sour cream then plunged into a dish of soft brown sugar.


I mean – what’s the harm?

Well, the problem for some of us is that the ‘now and then’ quickly becomes more now than then.

And as the sweets increase, so do the sinus infections, skin rashes, highs and lows, not to mention the pounds.

It all seems pretty unfair.  In fact, I find it downright annoying. 

But that’s the way it is.  Oh, I can have sugar.  After all, it’s legal.  In fact, it’s more than plentiful in everyday foods.  I just have be prepared for the consequences.
