One in the city that has raw vegan desserts!

    If you look at these 'sweet' goods as an occasional treat then I think that's a good relationship, well in our terms. Our diet mainly consists of raw fresh green foods, fruits and Veg. I know I would rather my child have a second or third apple than some other 'normal' treat most children get these days, it gets hard when you don't have meat, milk, cheese or gluten in the diet... Well that's where we are at in our diet anyway

    I still get coffee I just have a decaf with soy (because I don't have dairy) and honey

    We avoid the same foods so know how you feel! It's definitely tricky.

    Have you looked at www.paleomg.com ? She has some super yummy treats in there that are everything free. I recommend the double layer fudge, caramel slice (made with nuts and dates) and the birthday choc cupcakes. The fudge especially is unreal and its raw, healthy and sugar free

    Clucky- That blog looks awesome! I have been wondering what to make DD for her 4th birthday party food, and there are some great ideas there!

    Anyone got any other ideas? It is a lunch and we were thinking of doing some BBQ foods for the adults, although maybe soup would be better. hmmmm, I have no idea!

    Thanks clucky, some of those look great!! I can't have soy or eggs and don't eat meat so were vegan, it throws in another aspect when you can't have most things hey?! I can tolerate a tiny bit of soy sometimes, just not a big build up but eggs give me terrible stomach pains!

    I have both the DDs birthdays coming up and I'm planning them this week, I will let you know what is on the menu!! Banana ice cream cake is easy AS! Going to be doing that in the dolly varden cake mould with a Barbie stuck in it and decorate with a coconut milk icing, dd2s will have dora stuck in the middle, will go grab some vegan choc chips from the city to add to it I think, hoppers make GF and no nasties but not sugar free sprinkles cause its their birthdays I'm happy to have a little splurge on minimal organic cane sugar, most brands use other sugars as well so really it's not as high in sugar as most things.

    I'm going well, still no sugar to speak of and not really missing it. Loads of energy, mood is good, just feeling like thus is a really good thing for me to do

    How's everyone else? I may be a little quieter in the next couple of weeks as I have visitors but I hope you all go well

    We are going well here too.

    I made the Anzac cookies from the sweet poison book last night for DH. They are definitely not as sweet as if I had made them with golden syrup but they satisfied the peckishness.

    What I'm missing is fruit. I normally eat heaps and being restricted to the two pieces a day is hard, but I'm getting there. Extra fruit isn't going to be the end of the world.

    I didn't think that my energy levels had changed but today I tidied the house, took DS to do the grocery shopping, did a couple of hours work, went for a run and now I'm cooking dinner and I still feel good. I was thinking that we should start a recipe spin off?

    Two nights of 8 hours solid sleep helps too I think. I'm hoping that continues.

    How's everyone else?

    Ugh I screwed up today. I have had a really emotional couple of daydream and today I caved. I had some sweet chilli sauce and half a lemonade. Never mind, back on track tomorrow.
    I love the idea of a recipe spin off!!

    I have just finished reading sweet poison and have been sugar free for one and a half days. I feel like I have been hit by a bus. I have little energy. Blah, afternoons are hard, i just want to out caramel syrup in my coffee. After dinner is hard, I love sweet treats while sitting on the couch. My favourite after dinner treat was low fat yoghurt with a handful of sultanas, thought I was being healthy but it turns out its one of the highest sugar things you can eat

    Try taking some spirulina and a vit D supplement, might give you that energy back. I like to have a chia tea with honey but you can substitute with some stevia for sweetness and a tablespoon of raw cacoa or Dutch cocoa added to some milk or nut mylk whichever you prefer. You can always make sugar free ice cream, freeze some milk (coconut milk is nice) cubes and blend with some sweetener, add some vanilla bean add raw cacoa or Dutch cocoa for a quick healthy ice cream...
