Living Sugar Free or Sugar Less
Many of you are familiar with all the homemade, vintage, all natural products that are for sale on Etsy.com!
Since the beginning of my online Etsy store, we have been featured in a handful of lists and newsletters of featured items called Treasuries. Each time we are featured feels like such a delight and has me smiling for days! And until now, I have refrained from sharing the links. I guess I was waiting for just the right one to come along…
But, last night I got an email from ‘Blueberry Shoes’ the writer behind the blog ‘The Mermaids Closet.’ She thanked me for offering such great SUGAR FREE jams!
Being insulin dependent is a life changing thing, and one that runs very close to my heart. I can’t count all of my friends and family that are diabetic on both hands!
Even I have to make a conscious effort to leave the sweets alone, but when I do it makes all the difference in the way I feel.
What would happen if every person gave up one thing that they normally eat with sugar and replaced it with a sugar free version or with a sweetener such as Stevia or Agave Nectar?
I mean, just look at that picture of my Sugar Free Mississippi Peach Jam above! That pure, all-natural, yellow-orange peach color! I can not only stare at that wholesome gorgeous jam all day but I can definitely eat it until the cows come home too.
Nothing but goodness can come of this new outlook on life, and I am taking the pledge to choose better, healthier, less sugar options!
I will keep you posted on the outcome.
If you need some amazing Sugar Free jam to replace your normal sugar loaded versions, check out my online store for the Blueberry and Peach flavors that are currently available!
