spoonful of sugar free! strike the sugar!

happy labor day! now let’s get right to it with the sugar strike! 

so i was browsing blogs this weekend and i came across powercakes “strike the sugar” via Tosca Reno and i am going to take this challenge! i have been quite the slacker lately with processed sugar (thank you hot tamales) and need to get back on track!

be sure to check out Tosca’s blog post for more info about sugar and sugar substitutes and jump on board! lucky for us Tosca posted a nifty list of approved sugar’s to use and of course fruit is still allowed!

found this nifty chart from christina at theathletarian via powercakes to help us with what is allowed

so to enter all you need to do is post pictures to instagram @jessieann, @toscareno, and @eatcleandiet with the hashtag #strikesugar.  share all the ways you are STRIKING SUGAR for the month of september! that inclues recipes, daily eats, or pictures of you! don’t forget to enter because you can win some sweet stuff thanks to the eatcleandiet.com!

i am so excited! i am a fan of most of the “yes” items! it is going to be tough to avoid rice syrup and cane sugar but i need this good kick in the butt!  hopefully labor day isn’t filled with too many sweets!

so whose with me?  let’s go strike some sugar!

    This is needed for so many people! I can’t believe people still eat things with aspartame. That is sooooooo nasty!

    Good luck with the strike! I’m amazed people still eat things that are in the NO column. Excessively too!
