a sweet surprise

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I've had hot oatmeal with raisins, walnuts, milk and brown sugar nearly every morning for years and then waited until later to workout. This spring, I switched from a coffee maker to a Mukka pot
, and my morning latte tides me over through the morning paper, email check & workout. Then I have my oatmeal. A couple of weeks ago, I ran out of brown sugar (I was feeling guilty about eating the processed stuff anyway), so I tried some honey. It tasted "different" but I ate it and went about my day. Suddenly I noticed it was 5 p.m. and I hadn't stopped for my afternoon coffee & snack.....I never got even a little bit hungry. hmmmm That continued until I got to the store and restocked the sugar. Wouldn't you know, the afternoon crash came right back? I switched back to the honey right away. I'm really surprised to see how much more energy I have without the sugar. I really can't believe it.

    I find the same thing happens when I have sugar too! Amazing how horrible it can be for your body!
