“I Just Eat What’s Put In Front of Me”
How to live without sugar, but still eat dessert.
You know, that white granulated, sweet stuff.
All of us know it’s unhealthy.
Most (I won’t say ALL) of us still eat it.
I’m known to be a “health nut”, and to to be completely honest, I still eat sugar every once in a while.
But this isn’t about shaming anyone for their sugar consumption, or insisting that we all need to live sugar free lives.
I know that at some points in my life, I will eat it…but I’m not going to intentionally make it a part of my lifestyle. For me, living “sugar-free” is not a diet, short-term fix, or something I plan to be religious about. It’s a lifestyle choice I’m making, because I know the damage it can do, and don’t enjoy experiencing it’s negative effects on myself.
It’s hard to completely cut out sugar, and it’s hard to even start reducing how much you consume.
But if you’re someone trying to lose weight, clear up your skin, get mental focus (clear away brain fog), better your digestive system, or better care for your body in general, reducing your sugar intake is a very important step.
So whether you’re looking for ways to reduce sugar in your life, or you’re wanting to start getting rid of it for all intents and purposes, this post is for you!
And if you’re simply wondering, “how do you make dessert taste good without sugar?”…I’ll get to that too.
It’s kind of ironic that right before I sat down to write this, I enjoyed a delicious green smoothie. 😉
But I’m not here to tell you to stop drinking green smoothies. Or that consumption of green smoothies is bad.
I’m here to share why I rarely drink them myself, along with a few cautions for those of you who do.
