Before I went on holiday, I was told that they key to solving a problem that I’ve had with my stomach for a couple of years was to cut out sugar for 6 weeks. What I didn’t realise was that this meant cutting out most carbs (except Brown Rice, Sourdough Bread and a few Pulses), all fruit, tea, coffee, alcohol – and the list goes on.
Knowing that I was going to Australia, I decided to start the day I got back. I lasted 6 days without sugar and on the 7th day gave into a tripple chocolate chip cookie from Gails Bakery, oops.
If I wasn’t such a sweet freak and I didn’t live and breath food, this could potentially have been a doddle – but I just can’t give up the things that I love. However, the recipe below does prove that you can still eat a delicious meal – it’s just the pudding afterwards that is the problem!
