in honor of breast cancer awareness month and my dear friends who are fighting cancer, i will be giving up sugar for the month of october. in case you didn't know, the over fermentation of sugar in the body is the largest known cause of cancer. read more here and here. it's not an easy thing for me to give up treats (fruit will still be on the menu) for a whole month, but making a stand against a cancer is well worth my small sacrifice. instead of picking up pink m&ms for the cause, ditch the culprit and help make a real difference. show others the importance of what we eat and how it affects our bodies. would you like to join me? if so, leave a comment and we can encourage each other. i promise not to post anything sweet + delicious until the challenge is over. the fun part is the challenge ends on halloween, so you can reward yourself with some dark chocolate!
*randomly, i had two people this week tell me that they had tried the detox plan. i didn't even know they read my blog so that was really cool.
