Break the Sugar Habit: Week 3

Same song, second verse. No new developments this week, except that I learned how to make dairy-free chocolate chips that are quite delicious. :)

Snacks I ate:

  • oatmeal
  • popcorn
  • trail mix
  • peanut butter and jelly on toast
  • peanut butter and raisins on crackers
  • dairy-free chocolate bar (not too sugary :) )
  • homemade granola (I put the batter in muffin tins and had little granola “rounds”)
  • potato chips
  • fruit (fresh peaches and cherries this week…yum!)

Cheats (and other things I didn’t like):

  • soda: I realized that by the time I get to the end of the cup, I don’t really like the stuff any more. I’ll try to remember that buying a drink for a treat at a restaurant usually makes me end up feeling bloated–a food treat is better. :)
  • dairy-free chocolate bar: this is delicious! I’ll be doing this again, and it’s definitely got less sugar than regular chocolate chips
  • granola: this was my sugary snack for this week, but I ate it all up in a matter of days. I did share some of it. :)

Onto week 4! Not sure if I”ll make granola or a quick bread this week. I might try granola and a lower sugar bread. We’ll see… :) Check out Mandi’s posts from this week to see how their family is doing! Have you found any ways to reduce your sugar intake this month?
