LifeMINUS sugar: Day one

I received a text today and it looked a little like this:

Man… These donuts are delicious! I don’t know that I’ve ever tasted one so good.

So that’s how it’s going to be, huh? Well here’s how it’ll work. I’ll go about my day and share everything I eat and everything that I don’t eat. I’ll then follow each addition with a timestamp so that you can see my progress throughout the day. So keep coming back to see how I’m doing!

So far today I’ve eaten two eggs. And I’ve passed on an energy drink that claims to have no sugar, yet contains sucralose, and toast (because without jelly, what’s the point?). Going strong!

Cassie was eating SunChips and they smelled amazing! Planning on jambalya tonight!

Okay! So day one is almost down! I was thinking this would be pretty difficult. Well… earlier I thought I could hear an ice cream truck… and then I saw a milkshake running around and screaming “Don’t eat me! I contain lactose!” Very weird.

Anyhow, day one of seven is down. Living lifeMINUS sugar is difficult, but more than that is seeing just how many foods have sugar in them. As I look through my cabinets and pantry I’m seeing even the so-called “healthy” foods have sugar of some sort in them.

    I’ve got protein paste, carb laxative…suffocated kumquat, perhaps?

    Why would you suffocate a kumquat?

    White Goodman doesn’t answer to anybody.
