I went shopping

Weaning myself off sugar hasn't been the easiest. I originally wanted to go cold turkey and not eat any of it, but later I found myself knee deep in a bag of cookies.

With that said, my first week without sugar went decently...until Friday night when I arrived home to gluten free chocolate chip cookies and brownies leftover from Bab's birthday celebration at work. Throwing all caution to the wind, I helped myself to one cookie. Then a brownie. And then another cookie. Yeesh!

I decided that I am focusing on "low-sugar" right now, so I will not feel deprived to the point of binging on sugar loaded cookies. This weekend I went shopping to find some low sugar snacks. This is what I returned with:

I'm looking for items with sugars in the single digits. Let's break these down.

16 Crackers for 1 sugar. Not bad.

2 tablespoons, zero sugar.

3 crackers, 1 sugar.
2 slices, o sugar.

And for when I'm feeling I need a cookie, Mi-Del Gluten Free Chocolate Caramel mini cookies.

23 cookies for 7 sugars. Not too shabby.

I tried everything, but the Sesmark crackers and everything is delicious! These are definitely easy, worry-free options. What are you favorite low-sugar snacks and treats?

Love it! If I had the will power while pregnant I would be on board with you since I sooo want to get off sugar BUT I think it's going to have to wait until after baby comes. :)
