Today's Daily Challenge Wednesday Mar. 12, 2014
Healthy Behaviors is about lifestyle habits, namely healthy eating and physical activity, which have proven connections to lifelong health and disease prevention.
Learn about sugar alcohols in food.
How to do it
Visit the website of the American Diabetes Association at http://www.diabetes.org/foo... and learn about common sugar alcohols and their pluses and minuses.
Why it matters
Long gone are the days of just a few sugar substitutes - now food manufacturers have nearly a dozen sweeteners to choose from when creating their products. Becoming familiar with the names of the sweeteners can help you identify them on a nutrition label. Knowing their pros and cons allows you to make a more informed choice about your food.
The Archies' 1969 pop song "Sugar, Sugar" reached the top of the singles chart in four parts of the globe: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and South Africa.

Done. went and read about them. I can't do many artificial sweeteners. They make me feel yucky most days. So I tend to just limit my sugar intake period.
Happy Wednesday all. Hope you are all enjoying the somewhat nicer temps, even as we dip down a bit again for the rest of the week.
Day 2 Phoenix. We're off and running. We've so got this. :) *hugs*

Really...Sugar Alcohol??? There are so many different and confusing ingredients associated with artificial sweeteners. Interesting article, though I am convinced that it isn't worth the calorie cutting. Real sugar is fine in moderation. I’m my case, moderation is the battle. (LOL)
Happy Wednesday Friends! :)

Happy Wonderful Wednesday
Interesting read. I do check the nutrition facts on products, especially the sugar/sugar alcohol. My husband is a diabetic so I am conscience of this.
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" (Luke 6:46) NIV
Do you ever get a feeling that God is telling you to do something? That is called conviction. Sometimes, we are convicted to do things that are difficult and all we want to do is run away. But when we run away, we compromise with God. We want the benefits of a relationship but when He asks us to obey Him, we are not willing to do the hard work. What area of your life is God convicting you to honor Him with?
Peace and Blessings
