Sugar-Free Week Is Over!
Sugar-Free week is officially over…phew! I’m so glad I did it! I’ve never done anything like that and actually stuck to it!
Here’s a recap of Sugar-Free Week:
I missed my beloved Chobani with the Fruit On The Bottom, but it has lots of evaporated cane juice! So instead I had plain greek yogurt with my own berries and other toppings!
Toppings galore: frozen blueberries, raw oats, flax meal and peanut butter! I think from here on out I’ll just buy plain greek yogurt, I mean, why would you buy it already flavored when you can do it yourself!
Yes, you can make sugar-free cookies that taste good! Guess what? Only bananas and applesauce to sweeten them.
I used the recipe on Angela’s blog for Banana Apricot Oatmeal Cookies only I used applesauce for the maple syrup!
They were really good for being sugar-free! Even my mom and dad thought so!
Banana Bread has been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little kid. I’ve never made it without butter and sugar before, though! I used Kathleen’s recipe and I was so thrilled with how nice it came out! I prefer walnuts in my banana bread so that’s the only thing I changed!
My family is used to more sugary banana bread, so they ate theirs with honey, but not me! I loved it just the way it was! I’ll never use another banana bread recipe again!
**edited to add:
I have battled with acne ever since I was 12. My skin completely cleared up last week! I’m thinking it was a mixture of reduced amount of gluten (I had to limit myself to only sugar-free breads), sugar and I know I ate more fruits and vegetables since there was nothing else to eat!
While I don’t think I’ll ever go 100% Sugar-Free, I am going to be avoiding things like evaporated cane juice, honey, brown rice syrup and maple syrup. It’s a more natural sugar, yes, but it’s still sugar!
Instead of 100% Sugar-Free, I think I’ll be 97%! 🙂
