Welcome 2013!!

Happy New Year!!

It's been a wild and crazy year, but aren't they all??  This is the time of year for reflection and looking forward.

Reflection:  Here are the top 4 things that I have learned this year:
  1. Sugar is toxic
  2. Wheat and grains are not necessary for health
  3. Pharmaceutical companies don't want to cure you, just maintain you as a customer
  4. Saturated fat is actually good for you 
What have you learned??

Looking forward:  Here are my top 4 goals for 2013:
  1. Get at least 7 hours of sleep a night
  2. Exercise regularly
  3. Read all I can and share the wealth
  4. Blog at least once a month
 What are your goals?

I'll leave you today with a tasty dip for your New Year's Eve party!!

       and drained well
