I know it's a quite old fashioned thing to do in our modern society and don't worry I'm not about to start preaching God and religion at folk BUT we do give up something for Lent each year and this year we thought we would have a particularly challenging one so....

Myself and my 13 year old daughter are giving up.....

wait for it.....

nearly there.....

SUGAR!!!

This means chocolate :(

Sweets :(

Cakes :(

Squash :(

Pop :(

and lots and lots of other things I really like :( :(

The only exception for my daughter is bread. Naturally occurring sugars are ok such as fruit but that's it....may loose a few pounds this year as well!

Anyone else playing this year??

Bit boring but since our local Asda started putting the traffic light warnings on food (green good red bad) I have been astounded by the amount of foods that you would never expect to contain sugar' did you know skimmed milk was high in sugar and don't start me on the so called healthily bran flakes or special k which are both leaden with the white stuff.

So good luck with that one

Each to their own folks.

Now if anyone has some good idea for picky sugar free snacks whilst I am driving that would be appreciated!

I didn't mean it to come over as harsh; it's purely a life choice. I'm not getting hate letters from the Vatican just yet.
