Huz and the glowing inner orb of golden light :: sugarfree :: day 9
I mentioned before how when we first went sugar free, we felt better than ever. Huz noticed the change most dramatically, having indulged more than any of us. The extent of his indulgence is not something he discloses when sugar is part of his day, such is the extent of his attachment to it. Last time, he glowed. People noticed it. They commented. Lots. His glow became known as the glowing inner orb of golden light. It had a name. He felt so good that he smiled more. He was a calmer parent (this is helpful). He saw more colours than he had before - seriously! Imagine that!
Anyhow, we're at day 9 of our current sugarfree stint and the glowing inner orb is returning... Speaking to Mum on the phone during the week, she noticed it. He sounded lighter. Happier. His mind is clearer. Physically, his face is less puffy, his skin clearer. Incredible stuff! Can you see it there? His glowing inner orb? Here's a man up at 8 am on a Sunday morning, making butter, in his pyjamas, grinning at goodness knows what and glowing with happiness. I love that! We're now realising that this sugarfree lifestyle is not just a 30 day challenge, as it was when we began. It's a way of life for us now.
As to the butter... how beautifully simple. This morning there was no butter for toast. But there was a jar, marbles and a small bottle of organic cream... Butter! And a spring activity crossed off my list of things to do with Little Owlet, who's obsessed with all things farm related right now. She's decided home made butter is the best ever.
Alongside our Sunday indulgence... Wholemeal chocolate rapadura brownies, with cream. This is the kind of sugarfree life I'm very comfortable with ;)
