About ten years ago I completely changed the way I eat. At that time I was a healthy weight, quite active and ate pretty well. But it didn’t matter, I was tired, had very little energy and my stomach hurt all the time. I decided to eliminate sugar from my diet and be more picky about the carbs I was taking in. It had a HUGE impact on my health. After getting though the sugar withdrawal (which lasted about three days) I started to feel great. I was no longer dragging my feet all day, my stomach problems improved dramatically and I just felt healthier overall. I’ve never looked back since making that change in my diet. Now I’m not a fanatic about it, I will indulge in sweet treats here and there but overall I live a sugar free low carb (not no carbs!) lifestyle.
I am a huge fan of peanut butter. I’m one of those people who can just eat spoonfuls of peanut butter right out of the jar. I came across a flourless peanut butter cookie recipe years ago that I modified to fit my diet, make a little healthier and just a little yummier too.
