How 5 Pounds of Sugar is good for you…..

We just returned from Spring Break.  A split weekend trip between Nashville, TN and Auburn, AL.  We ventured south to visit family who have recently moved to Auburn.  It’s an understatement to say that my kids were thrilled about visiting an SEC campus.  We gave ourselves a tour of facilities – you know, walk around and act like you are supposed to be there.

This gave us access to the football field, the baseball diamond, the pool deck of the Natatorium and the basketball coliseum.  It was quite an adventure.

For those of you who follow college football, I’m sure that you are familiar with Toomer’s Corner on the northeast corner of campus, a drugstore opened in 1896 that serves it’s famous fresh squeezed lemonade and hand dipped ice cream.

Toomer's Lemonade

A quick google search gave me the generally accepted recipe for Toomer’s Famous Lemonade.  After reading the recipe, I have decided that this a unique exception to the healthy lifestyle that we all crave – a time when there is an argument that 5 lbs. of sugar is actually GOOD FOR  YOU!

Here is what I learned: 5 lbs of sugar is good for you when it evokes tradition, brings together generations and creates lasting memories of family vacations.  It’s good for you when it has it’s own Twitter Account and Facebook page and Live Webcam to stay connected to your memories.
