Breaking up with sugar. Part 927.
I'm trying it again. Today is my first sugar-less day (in a few weeks) and already I'm feeling lethargic and craving something sweet. I always find the first few days without sugar to be the hardest. At least I don't have one of those hot-poker-to-the-eye sugar withdrawal headaches. My plan is no white sugar and no corn syrup. I feel like I should also add that I use no artificial sweeteners (with the exception of a diet soda several times a year). The whole wheat bread I bake has molasses in it, so I give that a pass. Fruit also gets a pass from me. As will the honey I intent to add to the pizza dough I make every Friday night. Now that I'm outlining this, I guess I'm not exactly sugar free, just sugary-snack free. And that is a positive step in the right direction.
