Strike Out Sugar...Paleo Style

Tosca Reno is encouraging everyone to Strike Out Sugar for the month of Sept... There's a really good post on the blog Powercakes ... I found it while searching for a "Strike Out Sugar" picture (thanks Google) & there's some really awesome info about natural vs. artificial sweeteners... I'm a fan of Stevia myself.  You should definitely consider eliminating (or reducing) white sugar from your diet.  I'm definitely a sugar addict, but so far I've been doing well without it... I feel so good!

Well...onto the "Paleo Style" part... Alex says I'm fickle.  That may be... I think it was my very last post that I was saying I "couldn't do Paleo because there were too many restrictions" ... & any of you that read my blog the last time around may remember that I tried EVERYTHING on the market (even hypnosis!) ... So...I thought I'd give Paleo a "go" again & I'm feeling really good about it.  (Isn't that always the way when you try something new?)  But I mean I feel REALLY good.  Last time I was just "dipping my toe in, checking the water out"...this time I'm all in... As in, "clearing out my pantry"-all in...  And I've been cooking Paleo for my family too.  Alex seems to be cool with it so far.

This is what I made tonight...
Here's the link to the recipe:

Anyway...all in all it's going very well & I'm loving it!  I'll post some links to some great sites I've found with info & recipes soon.  I'd be interested to hear if any of you have tried this way pf eating, or if you're going to be cutting out sugar!  Next time... my new favorite website for workouts.  And...why I think I've tried & failed so many times... stay tuned!

  1. Portion control is one of my mantras now. Plus I record everything with My Fitness Pal. These tweo things along with label reading and getting rid of processed foods are what is keeping me on the road.
    Keep up the great work...
