Sugar Free Chocolate
"How will I ever survive without chocolate? Will I never be able to have a piece of chocolate cake for my birthday again? How can this be manageable?" These were the thoughts in my head 10 years when I first decided to try living without sugar and refined flours for 6 weeks.
6 Weeks of agony as I had to deny my sweet tooth and abstain.
But then I discovered I could make the things I love without the sugar. Maybe they wouldn't compare, but I had to try and try I did. And I kept trying and I keep trying and creating 10 years later.
I can't help myself, I have a sweet tooth, there is no denying. I have a thing for chocolate and I won't be ashamed. I had a little relapse when I got pregnant with my 3rd child and decided I didn't have an issue with sugar and I would just enjoy myself and then remove it after I gave birth.
He will be 9 three days after Christmas which always brings me back to that desperation I felt when I realized I was a sugar addict and I was worse than I really thought. I had no idea until I tried to remove the sugar and detox myself.
You see the first time I did it was purely to lose the baby weight from my 2nd child, I didn't think I had a problem. I don't think any addict realizes they have a problem until they try to stop whatever it is they are consuming and can't get enough of.
By the grace of God and support from a wonderful wise older mentor type mom, I was able to break free back in 2006 and have NEVER touched the white stuff since.
I remember that desperation and I never want to feel that way again. I have sugar freedom and I can still enjoy dessert and chocolate and pies as long as I make them sugar free. I can't tell you why I ever got addicted to sugar, but it happened and it was real. But today I live a life free from sugar addiction and I am grateful. My entire journey to keto is documented in my new cookbook, Naturally Keto available now.
I am grateful I can still have chocolate cream pie without the desire to eat the whole thing! Stevia doesn't make me crave and that's what I'm sticking with. If I can do it, anyone can! Now go and enjoy some chocolate cream pie!
