Stay Away From Sugar--Sugar in its many forms (candy, baked goods, sodas and a wide variety of added sweeteners) is like poison for those with diabetes or prediabetes. It leads to obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and, eventually, diabetes and all its complications. Sugar in all its forms is bad news for the body. That includes everything from white and evaporated cane juice sugar to molasses, maple syrup, agave nectar, honey and high-fructose corn syrup.
My Menu for the Week-I must say that doing Menu Plan Monday last week was a huge success for me. It was as simple as thinking up a few meals ahead of time instead of 15 minutes before we should be eating. Somehow, that takes away so much stress. Strange.
