Breakfast smoothie...Loads more, though not strictly sugar free, on my other blog.
I am finding there is sugar in sooooo much. (Yes, all those o's were totally necessary. and so is this:)
|Gratuitous puffy cat tail. He does this when he purrs.|
Examples: Balsamic vinegar (I love tomatoes and other veggies roasted this way, but a couple nights ago I ate this and it nearly did me in afterward. Not worth it to me.) Same goes for ketchup, breads and more. Sugar is known by many names including: corn sweetener, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, dextrose, sucrose, lactose, maltose, fruit juice concentrates, malt syrup, molasses, cane juice, and cane syrup. An ingredient ending in "-ose" often indicates sugar. I'm label reading like never before.
Here's lunch. Going sugar free? You bettah check yo' bread, before you wreck yo' bread. Or something like that. This is veg. ham, cheese, romaine and mustard.
Snack of the week. These were so good. I totally dumped the crumbs from the bag into my mouth, old-school Dorito style. Don't tell me you don't know what I'm talking about!
Dinner: This amazing recipe for NOT meatballs from goop a couple weeks ago. Here's the link. I could seriously eat ten of these. I roasted some tomaters in evoo and salt, tossed in some basil and served over spaghetti, with side salad. So yum!
The biggest and most amazing resource I've found as I go sugar free is Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar. It is phenomenal, accessible to all readers, health-questers and the curious. She offers step-by-step tips to get started and stay motivated, facts to help you stick to your guns and deal with resistance. I don't know that I'd have made it this far without this ebook.

I am now an I Quit Sugar Affiliate, because I wish I had this book years ago when I tried and failed to ditch sugar for good and found myself presently in a desperate position to do so. There are also loads of recipes to move you through making the transition. Oh and the best part there's no quitting cold turkey in this program, so if you think, "I could never do it," Sarah will hold your hand and show you, you can.
Also check out Sarah's blog here. Please share your sugar-free journey or any food modification you've had to or chosen to make. I'd love to hear your story.
