The other morning I ate a sweet potato for breakfast. And not just a sweet potato. But a sweet potato topped with oats, brown sugar, a bit of butter, and pecans.

Sometimes I forget too easily how beautiful and delicious simple and fresh food is. I have no doubt in my mind how addictive refined sugar is. Get a little bit too much in me and I can’t be stopped. It can get bad. Real bad. And anytime I start to realize that it is getting bad or that it is …
