Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 28th day of July, 2015.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton …. sun coming up and casting those glorious beams everywhere.

Oh how lucky we are ….. there is a breeze to ensure a cool comfortable walk to the bus.

YAY …… for Tuesday.

Last night as I was eating supper and watching a morning show that I taped I came across some information that I did not know.

Did you know that “4 grams of sugar = 1 teaspoon of sugar?”

Let me tell you that gave me a whole new perspective on the grams of sugar on foodstuffs.

Now I try not to eat a lot of foods that have added sugar.

If the manufacturers would put the amount in teaspoons instead of grams ….. we likely would not eat as many of them.

It also gives you a better handle on portion size.

My Grandmother always used to say that you could eat anything as long as you exercise portion control.

This many years later she was so right.

Anyway just wanted to share that information.

If it makes a difference that is good.

I know it was a light bulb moment for me.

The portion size I know ….. I also have a healthy appetite ….. lots of times I eat too much …..

So going forward it will be doing the math on added sugar …. converting from grams to teaspoons and

now I will exercise better portion control.

Happy Tuesday.

I hope that you have a productive happy day.

Special hello to: my sister …. three sleeps now.  (Thanks S for the birthday wishes to “J” …. I will pass them on).

Always, Carol and Alvin
