Farewell to sugar

February 12, 2013 - Taste Buds
If you've been following the latest Buds' eating trips (which, of course, you have), you may have noticed we've been eating a bit more sugar than usual.

Oh sugar, how we love AND loathe thee. Bud Shaunna, for a time, had given up sugar, and was doing quite well. But, that pesky substance has a tendency to sneak up on you, and before you know it, one little "taste" turns to bigger and bigger bites, until we're right back at square one. Sugar has a way of sucking you in. One bite and you must have more! And if you don't eat it, your body rejects your anti-sugar stance by giving you a pounding headache. "Take that!" your body screams. "Now feed me sugar!"

So the Buds have been on somewhat of a "farewell to sugar" tour, racking up bakery trips now before Lent begins. You see, Bud Shaunna and Bud Em are giving up sugar for Lent. To clarify, it's not ALL sugar -- that would be impossible because there's sugar in a lot of things, like salad dressing, ketchup, barbecue sauce, etc. We are talking about OBVIOUS sugar. Sweet treats of any kind are out, which actually encompasses quite a vast array of foods the Buds prefer.

But we can do it! We are strong-willed and tough. We just have to stay away from the cream horns and cookies and donuts for a while and stock up on some Excedrin.

Remember, just say no to sugar (at least we will!) and wish us luck!
