For a diabetic (adult onset), you’d think I’d avoid sugar like the plague. Sigh …. I really really love sweets.
But! I’m sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, so the sugar is going!
I stocked up on lean protein at the store today, along with my beloved dark leafy greens.
I am freezing as we speak a buttermilk lemon sorbet made with splenda (SOOOO good). I was going to use honey, but … that counts as sugar when we’re talking glycemic index.
I enjoyed another fresh out of the garden tomato tonight with arugula, a little blue cheese, avocado and some turkey (yum!).
I imagine I’ll start going bonkers for chocolate soon, but won’t deprive myself of dark chocolate (it’s healthy for you, right?). I particularly like a spoonful of chunky peanut butter with a sprinkle of mini semi sweet chocolate chips. Satisfies the chocolate craving!
I would love to hear your tips for reducing the sugar!!! Any favorite non-sugar treats?
