Well this is week 2 of my no white sugar/flour or caffeine. It is getting SO MUCH easier. I won’t lie – I still am craving my hazelnut coffee and some chocolate but it is not nearly as bad as Day 1 and 2. I thought I might share some of the recipes I have been making because some of you might wonder what in the world you could eat, well a lot actually. You will notice I am not very creative when it comes to lunch but if you would like to see what we usually have for lunch, click here. You may be wondering (or you may not) what you use instead of sugar – well the simple answer would be honey or you could use a lesser known product called rapadura or sucanant.

I have made a few of these this past week and will probably be making them again because I just can’t seem to shake that “I need something sweet after every meal” feeling I have. At least now it is usually fruit or a snack without sugar.
Easy Butterscotch bars (my husband even liked this recipe)
Flourless Peanut butter Cookies (or bars)
