Day 13: Mostly Having It All – Without Sugar

Tonight, I dined at my favorite northern Italian restaurant. I ordered one of my favorite meals (no added sweeteners and organic): pasta, cabbage, and potatoes. Proving to me, once again, that there is life without sugar.
 
Earlier in the day, I opened a package of organic Manna bread and very soon, had eaten half the loaf. The bread was tasty, like a dessert. It seems that eating bread made with dates and raisins switches on the sweet tooth. Something to work on. Not quite cheating but…
 
Food Log
pasta
savoy cabbage
potatoes
brussels sprouts
Manna bread (cinnamon and dates)
apple
dried figs
skim latte

Tip
Avoid sweetness in bread, even if there is no added sugar. You’re likely to return again and again to the loaf, eating way too much bread for any healthy diet. I recommend the Manna whole grains product. Just as tasty without the sweet.
