No Sugar Added

For almost 3 weeks, I cut all refined, added sugar and white flour out of my diet.  It wasn't as hard this time around as previous times when I've done it and I really felt good - more energy despite my 10 month old turning into a lousy sleeper again.  Even though now that I'm on vacation I've stopped being strict, I find myself reaching for healthier snacks and choices.  And, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite items without sugar:

From left to right

Ak-mak crackers - no white flour, no sugar, from Trader Joe's or regular grocery stores
Brown rice rice cakes - I put almond butter and fruit spread on them for breakfast or cottage cheese on them for a snack
Kashi 7 whole grain Puffs - one of the only sugar free cereals I've found
Bars:  KIND and Think Thin Crunch -  delicious.  My favorite Kind is the apricot almond one.  Check the packaging - not all are sugar free.
Almond milk - vanilla flavored without sugar or any sugar free sweeteners
Tazo Tea - Green Tea with Ginger . . . . long time favorite.  Good for those afternoon cravings.


  1. Think I'll try the KIND. (Did I tell you how much I liked your last post?)

  2. The KIND are good, albeit a little pricey. Thanks! I'm glad you did and I love comments :)

  3. Wow, so impressive that you were able to cut out sugar! I've had to do it for elimination times! I LOVE unsweetened almond milk, mmm! And I need to try some of your other recommendations like the KIND bar - I always see them, but I don't remember the last time I had one!

  4. Bec, thanks for the list. KIND bars are my new favorite GF treat. I'm going to try the brown rice cakes. . . maybe I'll like them better than the plain ones.
