Quitting sugar…6 weeks on

Six weeks ago my husband and I decided to 'Quit sugar'. I've followed Sarah Wilson's blog for a couple of years, and observed and even partaken in the principles of Sarah Wilson's 'quitting sugar'.

Raw Cacao Green Smoothie

Is this the best thing since echinacea? I remember about 15 years ago, my mum was all about the echinacea.
