So I am not sure if you have noticed or if I have managed to sneak this by you undetected but I QUIT SUGAR. I use very minimal, if any, in my recipes these days.
This happened about 12 mths ago now. I have not eaten processed sugar now for many years but dried fruit, honey, agave, maple syrup, fruit, all the “healthy sugars”, they were my downfall. I could easily polish off a pack of dried figs in a sitting and not even think about it. That is because our bodies have no “off” switch with sugar (fructose). Notice how you can smash a pack of Allen’s Party Mix and not feel full? Our bodies eat fat, carbohydrates, protein and at some point your body will say “stop eating, you are full”, it does NOT do this with sugar.
Quit Sugar, or don’t, but if you do, it will change your life. My allergies are better (I used to get terrible hay fever), my guts don’t get bloated, my “hangryness” has lessened, I sleep better, my skin is better, my mind is clearer, I have more lean muscle and less fat.
Sarah Wilson has a great ebook on how to quit sugar and why. It is not a novel, you could easily knock it over in a few hours. It is easy to read and explains things in such a great, simple way. It’s the best $15 you’ll spend this week. You can buy it HERE.
