Suger, you are a jackass and I hate your crystal-ee guts

For Christmas I made 3 pies with Agave - 2 pumpkin and 1 apple. And holysweethotyes batman, they were good. The thing (for me) about agave is it doesn't trigger my sugar response which is a little like this.
that was good. i need more. can I have more? where is more. not here? I'll go to where there is more. if you are between me and more you might want to move. more dammit!
Frankly that's pretty tame but you get the idea.

So someone (I won't name any names, my husband) wanted ice cream with the apple pie so that was fine, we got it. And I didn't have any ice cream on christmas, I was a true saint.

But then.

The other night.

He pulled out Mr Ice Cream to have with our agave/maple sweetened banana bread which is frakin' good and if any of you folks want to give up the crack for a hundy days I'll totally bake you some. Seriously.

Here (finally) is the confession. He said, "Honey, do you want some ice cream with your banana bread?" and I said.

What? Ms fu sugar, what happened? It was a moment of weakness. It seemed like a good idea.

And then. I ate more.


So watch your ass friends, that ice cream or scone or New Years fruitcake will sneak up on you and bite your butt. I woke up the next day with a sugar hangover, I was a grumpy discontented person. I am now on day 2 no sugar again.



  1. My friend just sent me a link to your blog and I'm totally in, though I just started on Jan 1... two and a half days, still sugar-free (including booze).

    I just heard a kid in a TV commercial say the word "brownie" and almost cried, but I'm committed. At least for the month of January... then if I use any at all, it'll be agave, stevia & the like.

    Good luck to you!
