easter... the sugar free way.

so i wasn't going to do an easter post this year...
because well, i didnt do anything easter-y!
i had to work on the saturday and so i didnt travel home to spend the long weekend with my family...
instead i stayed on campus, had a lovely friday movie night, went out on saturday, and felt hungover and sick all of sunday...
so instead this a post about not eating sugar at easter!


missing the traditional easter with the family definately made being sugar free alot easier...
the hangover however did not!
the family i babysit for bought me a chocolate bunny, which was so sweet of them...
and i bought it home on thursday and sat it on my desk, by lunch time friday i was soooo tempted to eat it...
i decided that the bunny would be my only chocolate of easter...
and so i had a nibble...
it was alright...
i had a little more...
a quarter of a bunny later i decided i didnt really like the taste...
it didnt taste the same anymore...
i didnt really want to keep eating it...
i stopped...
and that was all the chocolate i had for easter!
it has never ever ever ever ever been so easy to say no to chocolate!

ive had a  few people ask what im eating if im not eating sugar...
some examples:

- celery with cream cheese
-carrot and hummus.
- oats with berries.
- stir fry veggies
- avocado, avocado, avocado!
- risotto primavera
 - eggs, eggs, eggs, eggs and more eggs!

i do not feel deprived at all without sugar,
i dont even miss it!
i didnt understand when people made statements like that before,
but now after just over 3 week without sugar, i get it!

good for you!!! I really think that's awesome and how neat that it wasn't even as tempting anymore.

I have always wanted to do the no sugar thing but I just feel like there's sugar in EVERYTHING I eat- maybe even in my hot sauce? I suppose I could look and find out but I'm just not sure. Thanks for showing me what you've been eating! That is really helpful and maybe one of these days I'll give it a whirl.

I will be posting a recipe for a pepita and parmasen pasta soon.
The stir fry was just veggies and a little garlic (no sauce).
And the risotto recipe came from here: http://theeverygirl.com/feature/dinners-are-served-10-vegetarianmeals-for-less-than-50/
but i changed the veggies that included depending on what looked nice at the supermarket, i had red and green capsicum and broccoli in mine :)
