Sweet!

Hey apologies for not being a very friendly moth. I’ve been busy with boring things. Like: I’m not eating sugars and starches for a couple of months. Hopefully, this will help reset my metabolism, and I will no longer break down like a toddler in a grocery store when dinner is twenty minutes later than my body wants it to be.

In the mean time, I’m getting inventive. Last night, I just really wanted some dessert. So I melted butter, coconut, and cocoa powder together.

“Do you think it will taste ok with no sugar?” I asked Nate.

“Butter is sweet,” he said.

“Yeah! Butter is pretty sweet,” I said. But my concoction was bitter.

“Add some almond butter,” he suggested. I did, and some salt, and it was pretty ok. Then we sat on the couch and I learned why Nate says “Super,” whenever there is soup. (Hint: 1980’s TV.)

But that is a measure of how things are around here. I’m eating butter for its sweetness.

  1. Sugar free ideas to satisfy the sweet tooth that we’ve done:
    1) plain yogurt with cocoa powder and shredded coconut (very similar to your butter idea!)
    2) a fruit “batido” : milk, frozen berries, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt in the blender.
