sayonara, sugar.

Yesterday was my first official day without sugar. Do you believe any of that shit? But seriously, we even had a cookie swap at work and I didn’t even eat a single cookie or think about eating a cookie. I’m giving up sugar because I don’t want to die. Okay, that was dramatic, but I don’t…want to die. Or have an MRI with blood work but the latter I cannot control.

What does this mean for you? Well, it means not a lot of treats. I can hear you rejoicing, Rita! You’ll be seeing more savory things around these here parts. I even pulled a few recipes I’ve been eyeing to whet your appetite. See how nice I am?

We’ve really been trying to stick to a mostly paleo diet because I honestly feel so much better eating paleo and three of these recipies (if we hold those croutons) are paleo. OBVIOUSLY mac and cheese isn’t but it’s one of my favorite things. My grandma made the best mac and cheese ever and I wish it was a recipe and I wish I had learned how to make it. Like, so good. No sauce just some flour, salt, pepper, and sliced cheddar and shells. Grandma Rose was a cooking genius. But I digress.

I just saw this Kale Caesar Salad yesterday and I’m already dying to make it. I know it’s going to be delicious. Maybe you haven’t heard but roasted vegetables is the tits. It’s like the best thing ever and surely this roasted cauliflower will not disappoint. This goes without saying, but if you don’t like mac and cheese you’re not American and may. Braised anything is delish but something braised that I can eat a multitude of ways is great for lunches which is why I’m real excited about the Mexican Braised Beef.

So what do you all think? Are you okay with this change or will you cry diabetic tears on your keyboards?
