Livin' Lean Topic Tuesday: Sweet Rewards
Next time you are thinking about something sweet, try using maple syrup! A whole-grain waffle with a tablespoon of maple makes a great snack. Maple syrup is also a healthy sweetener for things such as Maple Green Beans or Pecan Pie. If you need something quick, try this quick sports drink found in Runner's World Magazine (January 2011):
Sweet Sports Drink: Mix 12 ounces of water with 3 tablespoons of real maple syrup.
A sweet tooth may be trying to tell us something. Perhaps your immune system needs a little boosting! Of course, it could be some dark chocolate that our bodies are looking for....but that is a topic for another Tuesday.
Have a great day!
