Hi leeneia,

There's not a lot of sugar or processed foods in our house either. It's the hidden sugar in processed foods which are a big danger if you don't check the labels.

In Australia, we had a major COVID 19 lockdown for a couple of months from March last year and because we were cooking more and eating out less, I lost weight. Most of the people I say that to, including my doctor, usually laugh and say that I'm the only person they know who lost weight instead of gaining weight in the lockdown. We were cooking meals with lots of vegetables and legumes and whole foods. A lot of other people were getting takeaway food from the big, well-known fast food chains - or maybe they should be renamed the fat-food chains.

Also, a couple of years ago a little girl in a beautiful party dress knocked on our door on Halloween and I had to tell them that we don't have sweets and treats in our house. The next year the local school made it a rule that the only houses the trick-or-treaters could go to were the ones with Halloween decorations up so I don't have to disappoint them any more.
