Lucky you, Patricia!  While I'll buy any chocolate, I do try to eat one piece of dark chocolate every day. If I decide to stop eating sugar, I'll still eat dark chocolate because of the anti-oxidant benefit.

Randall, it helps when you start the day with fruit. For chocolate choose dark chocolate with 90 or 100% cacao.

Speaking of blood sugar levels, mine is good. And I'm far from being overweight. However, I'm reading a book titled Year of No Sugar (Eve Schaub), and despite my love of sugar, chocolate, etc., I'm considering going cold turkey. It's so "poisonous" and addictive. Can I do without? Do I want to do without? I may attempt a trial run of a week or so. First, I have to eat up my brownies and honey laced breakfast bars I made last week!

Good news about your blood sugar levels Joan.

This morning I finally got my blood sugar back within a healthy range after all the wonderful foods of the Yule tables. I don't seem to be able to say "No" to the colors, textures, and flavors of a holiday table.

Spud, good news about the "no-touch restrooms at WinCo. 

Patricia, I did the same thing when I was going through chemo. With all the superbugs developing, it provides an easy proactive response.

Randy, I like that tradition. Cabbage on New Year's Day! I made a cabbage, carrot, onion salad with a vinegar and oil dressing to go with Cary's pork chops. We had a most delightful day!

One thing that WinCo does not do is have disinfectant towels to wipe the shopping cart with.  Both Fred Meyers and WalMart have them.

Every time I go there, I try to remind myself to carry my own with me, but I always forget.  I just wrote that on my shopping list, so I won't forget next time.

I just discovered another thing I like about WinCo Foods.   I usually regulate what I eat and drink when I'm planning on shopping, in order to avoid going to a public restroom, but today, I had to go while in WinCo.

I was happy to see the urinals, hand-washing spouts, and hand-dryers were all automatic, so no touching was necessary.  The restrooms also have no doors, so there is no touching door handles either.  I think that's wonderful!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  (A very godless new year, of course)

Our family tradition was to eat cabbage for good luck on New Years Day. Not that I'm superstitious, but I'll be eating some today!
