So much great information! Thanks to my daughter, I'm learning to eat healthy. I have learned to enjoy spinach. Even this smoothie - apple, spinach, greek yogurt and flavored water. It's green, but yummy and satisfies my sweet tooth. After giving up sugar because of diabetes, spinach tastes sweet to me. I believe small, steady changes are most helpful. I started (before I learned I had diabetes) by giving up regular soda. It was difficult and I craved it. After three days, the craving started to ease up and eventually it became easy to say "No" to regular soda. I have however starting drinking some diet soda, but not daily. I do believe it is unhealthy, but it's a struggle to give up ALL unhealthy things.
