Ho ho ho!
While this is the time of the year where we have the license for non-stop merry making and treats eating, we always have to be on guard against increasing cholesterol, gaining more unwanted weight, having a bigger and not so flattering waistline and for Paul and I, we’re also extra cautious towards our blood sugar level. We’re both not getting any younger after all and we both made a pact to stay healthy for one another and for our future family. Others might think we’re being overly paranoid but you see, my father-in-law was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes a few years ago and while he gets to maintain a better sugar level now, the possibility that Paul could inherit this is not that far-fetched. Thus, as early as now, we are being really careful about it.
Let us all have a sweet Christmas minus the guilt!
Note: As with anything in this world, Splenda makes a great substitute to regular sugar to help maintain your blood sugar level but of course, we have to take everything in moderation.
