Good morning, everyone!
For a full week, I have been cutting added sugar as best I can. It’s been more difficult than I expected: trying to figure out what to do with friends instead of getting ice cream or chai, not being able to try cookies my sister made, and especially no ice cream!
But it’s not all bad–I have definitely seen the far-reaching impact of sugar on my life. Everything from favorite snacks to social activities is affected by it.
Also, I made a delicious lemon pound cake for a birthday yesterday (I followed the recipe except I cut the lemon and vanilla extracts and replaced them with lemon zest. Two teaspoons of lemon zest replaced one teaspoon of lemon extract, for those of you interested in the substitution). If you make it, don’t forget the hot lemon syrup–it makes the cake!
As for the challenge, I think I will allow myself some honey to make honey-lemon tea with cinnamon, because that is my favorite cure for a sore throat. This is medicinal, I swear 😉
