I have recently been working to rid my diet of sugar. There are huge benefits to doing this and I have been reaping them. I have lost apx. 30 lbs, I am sleeping better, my cholesterol and blood sugar levels are now normal and my blood pressure decreased!
It wasn't easy, especially since I am convinced that sugar is somewhat addictive. You might think I am crazy, but think about it... people say, "I am addicted to chocolate, or twinkies, or ice cream", but have you ever heard anyone say they are addicted to
chicken breasts or eggs or spinach? Ha! I didn't think so!
I have spent a lot of time researching alternatives to sugar and traditional flours etc. I have perfected certain things and bombed at others. My reputation as a great cook is being somewhat damaged, but I am comitted to getting the sugar out of my life!
I have found that I can eat just about anything and maintain my weight as long as it doesn't contain sugar.
I am hoping to spend time sharing with you some of my findings, my tricks and my recipes. I get many if not most of my recipes from All Recipes, I love this place! Some of the conversions are fairly complex so I usually keep them to myself. I am going to
begin sharing these gems of sugar free knowledge to see what type of interest it solicits. Feel free to contact me if you read this and think we can help each other.
Life is sweeter without sugar!
