Sugar is poison but our burro just can’t say no:
Those of you badasses who somehow manage to avoid the sugar demons – what did you sub out for treats if, say, you have an intense sweet tooth?
I’m trying … for the 70th time … to wrest myself from the glucose-insulin-spiking jaws of sugar (a lifelong battle, it seems). The forms my sugar addiction takes are rather limited, but nonetheless potent: I tend to eat a lot of medjool dates (go figure) and it’s not safe to leave me around bar of “healthy” chocolate (particularly Honey Mamas, which are like hippie crack, or a jar of honey, at least not if you would ALSO like to participate in said chocolate or honey consumption.
So I’m looking to sub these sugar bombs out for something that hits the same spot. Any ideas are welcome – both food and drink!
For example, I have this really yummy coconut matcha latte mix, but it has too much caffeine in it and I can’t have that either. Recs on yummy sweet drink mixes would be awesome as well.
My greg, kittens, we must come to Judy’s rescue, lest Dodi finds her crouched down and inhaling chocolate bars in the NoPa Whole Foods candy aisle! Faith Shorney – I guess things are ok between Donk & HIVE – told our burro that medjool dates shouldn’t be a problem because they contain fructose. But Judy isn’t convinced:
Things do look grim. Any ideas re: alternatives to sugar (poison)? Let’s put on our badass caps and become healing gods and goddesses!
