In the past 21 days I have turned down cupcakes, homemade ice cream, root beer floats, chocolate, candy, cake, and lots of cookies*. Yeah, I'm proud of myself, so what. Whenever I find myself wishing for something sweet I grab a piece of the five different kinds of gum in my purse, eat some fresh fruit, or occasionally enjoy sugar-free jello, popsicles, etc.
Fruit smoothies are definitely my new favorite treat.
(banana + strawberries + blueberries + ice)
On the subject of fruit, has anyone ever tried Bountiful Baskets or a similar food co-op? (The only thing stopping me from signing up right now is that hideous website.)
*except the sugar-free cookies my sister lovingly made for me with agave nectar... yum!
