Sarah, Meredith, Katand I are hosting the #reverb16 December challenge with daily writing prompts for the whole month! You can join in anytime by finding our Facebook group. Use the #reverb16 hashtag when posting on social media so we can find you!
Sweets! Do you allow indulgences during the holidays with all the tempting food about, or do you have a plan to keep it in check?
In my social media description of myself, which as you know has to be extremely concise because on some platforms, the number of characters is limited, but I have made sure that I could fit in these eleven characters (incl the space): SUGAR LOVER
It is seriously just part of who I am. A natural sugar addict. Have been all my life.
Of late, I have been curbing my consumption after having found out that my eczema is brought on in part by refined sugar. One of the biggest disappointments of my life. Seriously. I find this almost as disturbing as my parents' non-acceptance of my lifestyle.
I had no candy corn this year. I will not have a huge cookie bake at Christmas. My birthday cake, pictured above, is a paleo carrot cake (gluten free/dairy free/refined sugar free) that I made for myself.
And I think from now on that's kind of how its going to be. If I want sweets, I need to make them myself. I'll still indulge in the occasional not-homemade treat now and then.
