So you know I am doing this “healing diet” thing where we have tried to eliminate all sugars from our diet…. ‘real’ sugar, honey, agave, fruits, breads, starchy vegetables… the whole 9 yards. We are supposed to do this for 3 months! So, I really, really enjoy sweets, and baking, and this book we have contains some decent sounding recipes. However, the only kinds of sweeteners we are allowed to use are stevia and xylitol. Yuck, yuck, and yuck. I cannot tell you how much I despise stevia. Words will not suffice. Tonight I tried yet another recipe – it would have been really yummy had I used sugar! It was an almond crust, dark chocolate drizzle, strawberries and whipped cream. Yeah. I know. Sounds good, right? Actually, Alan, Kiki, and Opa liked it. Oma and I; not so much. In fact, it’s been like 2 hours and I still have that yucky taste stuck in my tongue…. urgh! Gross gross gross!
Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there anything that works the same in the body that won’t make me want to puke? I’d appreciate suggestions!
