Better Choices

One thing that I have been doing since the new year is looking for ways to just treat myself better. I have stopped buying bread with high fructose corn syrup in it, for one. I know that there are thousands of things out there that have HFCS in it, and although I am still trying to avoid it in other foods, I made a commitment that it won't be in my bread for sure. I have even started making my own bread... if you haven't done this... you MUST!

But an even bigger milestone for me... I am on day 17 without Coke. A few months ago, I would have between 2 and 3 cokes a day... maybe more if we went to eat somewhere with free refills. Now, I have swapped them all out for another vice great choice: AZ Iced Tea! My specific tea of choice... Arizona Black & White Tea with Honey and Ginseng. This stuff is amazing... and I haven't missed my Coke yet... plus, the can is beautiful!

Yay! We avoid HFCS at all costs and it's just scary to look at labels and see where it's hiding! I've switched from cokes to crystal light powdered mix that I make a big pitcher of and keep in the fridge. Ok, so I usually buy the store brand, but I don't miss coke either!
