Housewife Life: Sugar Free Life
At the end of 2017, I did a Whole30 with my family. It was eye-opening. I am sensitive to gluten and dairy. And for me, sugar is a problem.
Since then, I have done my best to limit those food groups, but recently, it has gotten...out of control.
So, for my health, I gave up Sugar for Lent. It has been rough. The only processed sugar I am allowing myself is in my coconut milk that I use for coffee and smoothies. As I anticipated, my sugar dragon roared. I had headaches, I was moody, and I was really really tempted.
But I am happy to report that I am two weeks in, the sugar dragon is quieter and the headaches have passed.
Is there a food group you try to avoid? What strategies do you use to make it easier to abstain from that food group?
