My Favorite Healthy Sugar Alternatives

My Favorite Healthy Sugar Alternatives | Reclaiming Yesterday

A few years ago I started having a lot of health issues. After a while, I realized that my symptoms were the worst when I ate sugar (even high sugar fruits). That discovery led me to start investigating sugar. 

What I found was that we’re eating WAY too much sugar.

How do you guys feel about vegetables for breakfast? 

Up until about 6 years ago, I ate something sweet for breakfast about 95% of the time.

A Bibimbap Bowl Party

[I threw this fun Build -Your-Own Bibimbap Bowl Party for Earth Fare!] 

I’m back at it with the Bibimbap!

Do you guys remember those bibimbap bowls I made with duck eggs a while back? Making those bowls really got me addicted to bibimbap, and they’ve quickly become a favorite at our house.

There’s no strict set of rules and the toppings are endless, which is why these bowls are great for a party!
