Blogging about Sugar Day 2

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

So I had a little creamer in my coffee this morning. I also made slow cooker apple pecan blondie oatmeal last night. It's a SP recipe. The recipe calls for no sweetener, and uses maple extract and vanilla extract for flavoring. I decided to put 1 tbsp. of maple syrup on my oatmeal this morning, but I don't think I needed it. The apples in the oatmeal make it very sweet already. I think tomorrow morning I will leave off the sweetener and just have it plain and see if I like it.

I went without dessert yesterday and didn't crave it at night. I tend to have sweets in the afternoon for a snack, but I am giving that up. Yesterday for snacks I had carrot sticks with salsa and 4 cooked cocktail shrimp with cocktail sauce. The sauce is sweet, so I think that helped my cravings. Also, I wasn't starving once I ate my snacks, which helped me make better decisions. I also tracked my food early in the day yesterday so I had a plan of what I was going to eat all day, and I stuck to it! Hopefully all these things together will help me beat my sugar cravings.

    I add cinnamon to my oatmeal and that's all it takes for me, plus cinnamon is good for your body in many ways. Looks like you are learning to be very aware of sugar. It's a good goal to have.
