Sugar Addict Chronicles

Over the last year, I have been attempting to break my addiction to sugar. It is a dependency every bit as strong as drug or alcohol addiction. I realized that, as with any addiction, the addiction does not go away just because you are abstaining.

There will never be a day when I don't crave sugar and there may even be days where my cravings are more than I can bear. I plan to confess my weaknesses and exalt in my successes through this page.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.

Well, I usually throw a protein in there, appropriate accompanying: vegetables; spices; broth base.
I've made a Thai style pot of Thai chilies with cabbage, carrot, mushrooms, onions, shallots, ginger, etc. with a Miso Broth and the protein was shrimp.

I've make a Italian style pot with store bought, mushroom broth base; carrot; celery; shallot; garlic; sweet, yellow, & red onion; scallion; green bell pepper; jalapeno; ground venison; rosemary; thyme; salt; pepper; basil.
(I remember this one so good because it was recently "My Current Status" on the "Friend Feed".)

I've made a Mexican style pot where the protein was ground beef and the spices were Mexican Taco style.

I have a Spark Friend that belongs to a "Crock Pot Team" and she'll even throw in a piece of meat like a chunk of London Broil to slow cook it. Other people commented on the my post to the "Friend Feed" that they do homemade Chicken Soup in there.

I hope this help you.
I hope you're having a great day my friend ... :-)

I'm by Portland also. The weather here is crazy. I work in downtown SW and it will be hotter than anything. 60 minute bus ride west (out by Sherwood) and the temperature has dropped some (or maybe it is just the breeze).

Thanks for commenting on my progress blog. A freeze ray would be the ultimate I think! Too bad they don't exist (yet) and if they did, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to afford one. Oh, well.

Let those muscles heal this weekend. If you're sore, then you know you're doing something right! Have a good one!
