Good good links #34


Okay, so there’s a snazzy way to describe an awesome last day of the week [Sunday funday!] – but where’s the equally as appreciative term for a really good Saturday? Looks like I’ll have to come up with my own because today [writing this Saturday night as usual] shaped up to be a really good one. That being said I hope that whichever day you’re reading this on will be awesome for you, too.

    I just got so giddy over being included this week- thank you!

    I read that article about the no sugar for a year and thought it was interesting but also very extreme. They definitely made their point thought!

    And that nut butter cookie dough looks amazing! Any time I can justify cookie dough for breakfast, I’m there. (:

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      It definitely seemed extreme and they had some obvious findings – yes, sugar is everywhere these days and cutting it out will help refine our taste again – but it still was interesting. Especially to go for it as a whole family.
      The breakfast part was most intriguing to me about the cookie dough, too. Childhood happenings healthified. (:
