Morning Ladies, Well I've been looking for healthy recipes all week and ran into another blogger that is into healthy eating and homesteading. She was just on an self imposed sugar free 4 week challenge. This was very interesting to me and I'm trying to take the greater part of sugar out of my food. Years ago, 52 to be exact, when I was 16 yrs old. I was at the doctor's office looking for help to lose weight. His advice was simply stay away from sugar. and get up move. I did not have a clue how much sugar is in our food before we prepare it. Diets only work for a long as we are on them, I can't even hazard a guess how much weight I have gained and lost over my lifetime. Thank God in this time we have social media to look for healthy ways to live IF we truly desire be healthy. I'm not ever counting a calorie again. but I will be reading labels for sugar content. This lady has really opened my eyes.
It will be a slow start, financially and physically. Infact even mentally there has to be some changes. But they are coming. I'm starting to restock my pantry with the right things. It seems expensive but I'm just adding a couple of items weekly. Just like shopping for clothes, every recipe is not going to fit your taste. So I'll share the thing that work for me and recipes I like. Maybe you will like them or maybe you can tweak them to your taste.
Two of the good finds this week are listed below.
The hummus is not attractive in appearance but is tasty and a good alternative to some dips. I'll try and take some photos in the future.
