I (have) Quit Sugar

Nearly 4 years ago, a friend told me about a new "diet" called "I Quit Sugar". Pft, I thought, as if I could live without packets of sweets, jersey caramels & cake, especially with 2 young children draining my energy & working 3 days a week.

Can you buy healthy foods at the supermarket?

Cost is our biggest prohibition when it comes to healthy eating. let's face it, not everyone has $50 to spend on a protein powder, or "wellness elixir".
