September starts in just TWO DAYS! Do you know what that means?? My BIRTHDAY!! Just kidding. Well, not really. My birthday really is on September 1st (Saturday) but that day also marks the start of Strike Sugar September!
Who has consumed more than enough sugar this summer? I know I have. It’s not like I eat a lot of it, but with summer tends to come more fro-yo and ice cream than usual. I’m ready to kick it to the curb but let’s be honest, I will probably start on September 2nd. Sugar may or may not make it’s way into my body on Saturday and I’m not going to hold back, especially if Dean gets me those milk chocolate salted caramels that he promised. My birthday cake is going to be a little different though. I’m not a big cake person anyway, so I have decided I am going to make this:
It’s the Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding from The Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook. Theresa made it when the book first came out and I have been dying to try it ever since. Paired with vanilla ice cream and I think we have a dessert from heaven! Shhh don’t tell Tosca!
There is also a contest going on where you can win a pretty amazing prize pack. All you have to do is take a photo with Instagram to show how you are striking sugar from your Eat Clean Diet meals (don’t forget to tag @eatcleandiet). You can read more about the contest here. The prizes are pretty awesome so go check them out!
Throughout the month I will be posting some recipes, ideas for sugar alternatives, ways to beat cravings, and even my own personal experience with cutting sugar.
Sooo…the big question is WHO IS IN?!
What is your favourite kind of cake?
