    I’m from Serbia and I love this. Actually, all your tips on helthy snacks are great.
    I’d like to add one more on breaking sugar addiction, one that is quite efficiant because I tried it on myself and family members (I’m a teacher and mum of three).
    Every morning take one tbl spoon of honey and cinnamon in a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade. Cinnamon is a natural fighter against suger, recommended to all especially those fighting diabetes.
    Keep up the good work!

    Protein comes in more forms than meat, fish, eggs and dairy. You should have also mentioned beans, legumes, grains, nuts, seeds and vegetables.
