Sugar Free till Thanksgiving!
7 November 2012
I’m doing it.
I’m going sugar-free until Thanksgiving.
My body tells me every once in a while that it needs a break from the sweetness I’ve been enjoying.
Now it’s that time again!
Day 1 was fine:
Minor sweet cravings after lunch were easily handled with herbal tea “latte” made at home with unsweetened Almond Breeze Coconut-Almond milk.
Day 2 was annoying:
Got my period.
Just the time I allow myself to normally indulge in extra chocolate.
Day 3 was a little more inconvenient:
I got a cold!
My son is almost 6 years old and I get a few colds a year from just being a parent.
So normally I would have some raw honey in a cup of ginger tea, but instead I’m enjoying Yogi Tea blends that have some stevia leaf in them.
I stopped by one of my favorite local cafe’s, Sun in Bloom here in Brooklyn, and met up with Chef Aimee Follette to get inspired by her sugar-free journey. Here’s what Aimee and I share about going sugar free:
