Happy Friday!!! I was so happy to see that a lot of people are jumping on board with the Strike Sugar Movement! Now I have been getting a lot of questions about what is “allowed” so I dug deep and checked out Tosca’s “Sugar!” post on her blog from back in January. She talks about how sugar is the “legal cocaine” so if you have time, go check out her post! To make it easy, I put this little chart together to show you what is and what isn’t “Tosca-approved”:
So you will see that there are a lot of options to use as sweeteners BUT like Tosca says on her own post, these still have to be consumed in moderation. Basically, don’t go eating a whole bunch of bananas or chugging maple syrup, mmmk? Sweeten you tea with some honey, drizzle some maple syrup on your pancakes, and you won’t die.
YES, YOU CAN EAT FRUIT! That was a big one for me. I freaking love fruit and when I hear people say they eat half a fruit a day or even no fruit at all, it drives me insane. Fruit is beautiful. It is healthy. It is delicious. Eat it and enjoy it.
Princeton says hi. He hates all sweet things (including fruit – crazy dog) so he should be good to go for the month of September!
Please let me know if you have any other questions about Sugar Strike September!
What do you think is going to be/would be the hardest thing for you to give up?
Are you a fan of nutella?
