No Sugar

I have given up sugar for Lent so that means for the next 40 days.  So that means no more sugar in my coffee, no more candy, no more cookies. And I have quite the sweet tooth.  No more hot chocolate.  No more cake or desserts with sugar.  Pretty difficult to do.  Not without help. […]

An apple a day…
