Why start your day with a healthy breakfast when there are so many other cheap, tasty treats available? Good question! Last year I started my journey of letting go of my sugar addiction. Little did I know that one year later I would be 40lbs lighter with a clear mind and a ton more energy! I found that letting go of sugar affected positive changes in my mind and body.
