Give It Up: A Little Cheatin' Followed by Healthy Decisions

Give It Up: A Little Cheatin' Followed by Healthy Decisions

Now that the Give It Up community challenge is over, see how FitSugar reader Angelica fared.

I jumped into the Give It Up Challenge by giving up sugar and processed foods, and while I was able to avoid temptation the first week, I did cheat just a little bit in week two. I went to dinner with a friend and when the waiter pushed a sugary happy hour rum special on us I decided the treat and celebration was worth the cheat. To see how I made up for the syrupy splurge, keep reading.

The next day, resolved to get back on the naturally-sweetened bandwagon, I made wholesome oatmeal at home and garnished it with a dash of almond milk, a handful of strawberries, raspberries and juicy black figs. It was light years more delicious and fulfilling than the cocktail, but also the perfect "back on track" meal. Who needs fake sugar, when the real stuff is better than candy, and full of fiber and vitamins?
