Why are snakes measured in inches? Because they don’t have feet.
Miser Schobel says
Brown paper bags can be used for more than just packing lunch.
It’s a fantastic item to have in the kitchen for a plastic-free, recyclable way to store produce. Fresh mushrooms, potatoes, and all types of berries and avocados thrive when stored in a paper bag.
It protects them and also allows them to breathe, while the paper itself absorbs excess moisture.
And the bags are reusable, recyclable, compostable, biodegradable and inexpensive too.

Stop the Sugar Habit: Here are some thoughts on how to break free from sugar so you can live a sweet life for years to come.
Eat regularly. Eat three meals and two snacks or five small meals a day.
Choose whole foods. The closer a food is to its original form, the less processed sugar it will contain.
Eat a breakfast of protein, fat, and phytonutrients. Breakfast smoothies are great for this.
Try to incorporate protein and / or fat into every meal.
Add spices. Cilantro, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and cardamom will naturally sweeten your food and curb cravings.
Take a good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D3.
Move your body. Exercise, dance, do yoga, or rake leaves.
Get enough sleep: When we are tired, we often use sugar for energy to counter exhaustion.
Get into detox.
Be open to exploring the emotional issues related to your sugar addiction.
Keep sugary snacks out of your home and office.
Do not replace sugar with artificial sweeteners. If you need a sweetener, try Stevia. It is the healthiest.
Learn to read labels.
Avoid sugar in disguise. Most of the complex carbohydrates that we eat like breads, bagels and pasta are not really complex at all. They are usually very refined or act like sugars in the body and should be avoided.
Take L-Glutamine, 1000-2000 mg every two hours if needed. This amino acid is found naturally in the body and often relieves sugar cravings because the brain uses it for fuel.
To drink a lot of water.
Have a fruit. If you give in to your desires, grab a piece of fruit. It should satisfy a sweet tooth and is much healthier.
