Yesterday I made the statement that a rarely add sugar to anything anymore.
Today I had to eat my words. I was craving sweets terribly, and running through a mental check list of what foods I had in the house that might satisfy the craving. Luckily for me there was no ice cream in the freezer, because I would have eaten it all, the way I was feeling.
I decided to just try straight up sugar. I put a quarter of a teaspoon of sugar on my tongue. After a few seconds, I was amazed to find that it stopped the craving dead in it’s tracks.
I logged the sugar on my Spark food tracker:
4 calories, 1 carb, 0 fat, 0 sodium.
I can live with that.
Now I feel like I need to brush my teeth!
