Here are my favourite food links from this week, before we get down to the serious business of discussing Sugar Free September 😀
Intrigued by this oat-free Strawberries & Cream Paleo ‘Oatmeal’.
The Almond-Eater’s Pear & Cinnamon Muffins look delicious!
Totally making this Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potato asap.
Look at the pictures: This Spiced Zucchini Carrot Cake Bread looks surprisingly tasty and I must have some soon!
So Sugar-Free September is over!
I’m glad I made the decision to give up sugar for a little while, as I find it so much easier to make good food choices in general without the ugly sugar monster at my back.
I have to admit though – on Sunday (so little to go!) I had a little sugar binge. I ate two chocolate bars and some caramels. I’m not mad though; I was incredibly stressed and I know that in comparison to some binges I’ve had in the past it was relatively pedestrian. And since then (even though September ended three days ago!) I haven’t really craved sweets at all.
So in future I’m not going to go off sugar (the deprivation-binge cycle is not somewhere I want to be) but still seek to avoid it where I can. Especially when it comes to hidden sugars as I’d rather keep my sugar allowance for chocolate 😉
Instead of sharing a recipe this week I’m going to share some sugar free snacks that I’ve enjoyed this month!
It was also all about the hummous this month but I didn’t take any pictures for some reason!
What are your favourite sugar-free snacks?
