We always have a choice in what we eat. I have always struggled with my blood sugar levels. My Mom still tells stories about how grumpy I was after school as a child. She would literally meet me at our side door with a cracker to shove in my mouth. As an adult, I am much more aware of my blood sugar … Continue reading
