Around the end of last year, I made up my mind to give up refined sugar and refined carbohydrates. I made some small changes over time, until I finally phased it out. Then I started replacing those refined carbs and sugars with fruits and veggies. I did this by making myself veggie soup, having a fruit smoothie for breakfast and a green smoothie during the day sometimes. A few months ago, I started to adopt a more plant-based diet, eating whole foods (things that don't have an ingredients list; foods from the ground, tree, or vine!).
