Yes, there are gluten free foods with nil sugar. It can be done.

It has almost been one week since I began 54 days with no sugar. I feel great. One day into it and my bloat had drastically diminished! Miracle? Nope. Just the reality for me, and likely for many of you as well.

I got to thinking this past weekend about sugar and how it seems as though when you go off sugar “there’s nothing to eat.” This could not be farther from the truth, but perception is reality. Because we perceive it to be that way, many of us will never take the plunge to get off sugar because we think we just might starve.

I want to prove that wrong today and change your thinking.

These foods are obviously not a comprehensive list. Furthermore, at first glance, you might be thinking, “Um, boring. Yeah right!” Keep in mind that there are so many things you can do to add flavor. Everything from homemade dressings to cinnamon, shredded coconut, nutmeg, spices, herbs and more.

  1. off to follow your board! and random question, how do you generate those source links for pinterest? or do you work them up by hand?

  2. That list isn’t boring at all. I absolutely LOVE butternut squash, bok choy, avocados and oats. I actually grow the first 3 in my garden. Your pics make me hungry. I need to get rid of sugar too.

  3. I have been off of gluten for exactly 48 hours. And I feel good. But there is a serious craving for my peanut m&ms. I know they are gluten-free, but they are not sugar-free; and I’m trying to stay off sugar so I don’t irritate anything that is trying to heal. I sticking to natural sugars, like fruit…but they are not *chocolate*.

    1. Yes, when I first went gluten free, I did a strict – strict diet….the GAPS Diet. I healed in a matter of days. Sugar is hard to digest, so while your intestines are healing, it would probably be best to stay away from sugar. Do you like Cacao?!
