Dried Fruit is My Vice

Sugar Freedom Week 2 Day 6

This post is brought to you by I-had-a-ton-of-things-to-do-last-night-and-no-time-to-blog. 🙂 I went to Winco after work (pro shopper tip: If you go at 11 p.m., you get the whole store to yourself and it’s SO relaxing), prepped Jerod’s and my cocoa-coffee steak  (sugarless!) for Valentine’s Day dinner, made popcorn, and started the new season of House of Cards (I won’t spoil it for you, but if you’re a fan and haven’t started season 2, DROP EVERYTHING AND GO WATCH IT NOW).

I realized I forgot to record where I get most of my sugar intake last week. After mulling it over, I realized dried fruit is my vice. Yeah, it’s still “fruit,” but it’s been preserved with bunches of sugar. Plus, I’ve been eating a couple servings a day, which probably is fueling my sugar addiction, rather than helping me detox from it. So … this is me reluctantly admitting that I need to pull back on the dried fruit intake. Maybe it’s time to invest in a food dehydrator.

Dried fruit. Nom nom nom.

Check back tonight for a recap of our sugarless Valentine’s Day dinner! The steak is marinating as we speak. 🙂

  1. I can so relate to the dried fruit addiction. Luckily we now live in Australia where a lot of fresh fruit is always available, and very cheap! The other addiction I consistently nurture is my love of vegetable crisps. Come on, they have to be healthy, right? It’s just sweet potato, parsnips and beetroot, with olive oil and salt…. 😉
