Now after I had stopped the popping i would still get a pimple here and there. I was very pleased not to be dealing with 7-10 at a time but I was still pushing for what i new could be mine. With lent season coming around I thought about what I should give up. One morning while eating my daily oatmeal with maple syrup, berries, banana, chia seeds. I had a thought or rather God gave me the idea to try to give up sugar. Now i already ate clean; no processed food in any shape or form. But I did not catch the sneaky sugar in health food, you know the coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, all these natural but still pure sugar. I loved my granola with “natural sweetness” and I had to have my maple syrup but I decided to do it. I still had my fruit though because unlike the pure sugar forms they provide antioxidants, fiber, minerals, and vitamins. So I ate the fruit but I do steer clear of pineapple and strawberries. And if you know the meaning of lent it was the perfect time to try.
