Wherever you are right now, I bet there are at least two screens in the same room with you. You’re reading this on your phone. And then there’s your laptop in the corner or your tablet right next to you. Like everyone else, I rely on technology for many things; from email, to taking photos, right up to driving directions. And if you sleep with it too, then I’m glad not be the only one. But with all this digital addiction, I’ve decided to go on a digital detox.
I know Trish is running a detox support group that I’m definitely joining with a digi twist. So keeping reading to find out what you missed this week.

Raspberry & Vanilla Chia Seed Jam
Lately, I’ve developed an obsession for jam. I always loved it on toast but now it has spread to jam on crackers, jam on yogurt and jam on my morning porridge. When I got through the last jar of jam I bought in less than two weeks, I vowed to find a healthier alternative.The particular brand I was buying was 60% sugar.
After working so hard the last couple of months trying to reduce the kids’ sugar intake, was I undoing all of our good work by heaping this sugary jam onto her breakfast every morning? Probably! Click here for a healthy alternative.
