Sugar, oh Honey Honey

Pamelas
Well, I've pretty much determined that sugar and I are not very good friends. I eat Van's GF Waffles all the time (with syrup I mean) and lately I've noticed that I don't feel so good after eating them. I also eat Pamela's Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Chunk cookies on a regular basis and they aren't nice to me either. There are other foods too that bother me and when you add it all up and divide by the common denominator you get sugar. My roommate is currently studying for the GMAT can you tell it's affecting me too? These are the last 3 cookies from my last box of Pamela's for a while. I think I need to take a break from the sugar and see how it goes. I could use less sugar in my life anyway, it's not so good for you, so I've heard. On a more positive note, I've been very good about avoiding gluten and I'm feeling better and better. Speaking of sugar not being good for you, have you seen the new commercials about High Fructose Corn Syrup? sigh.. shakes head.. Of course those adds are paid for by the corn refiners of America. No lie, watch the bottom of the screen when you see the commercial. I still hold firm that HFCS is the devil.

I had a new comment from Marlow of Gluten Hates Me But I'm Surviving this morning and I was so excited because I have not seen her blog before and it's a good one, so go check her out! I do pay attention to my stats, so I know how many visitors I get but I don't get a lot of comments so I never really know who's reading. Of course there are a select few that comment and I know they read regularly but the rest are a mystery so it's always nice to have a new comment every now and then! I'm always looking for new blogs to read, especially gluten-free blogs, and because of Marlow's blog and blogroll I added 7 new blogs to my feeds. I have not updated my blogroll lately but I actually have 35 gluten-free blogs in my Bloglines reader that I follow. Anyway, so if I you're reading my blog and think that I'm not reading yours, please let me know so I can find you!

This weekend I'm so excited to be hanging out with my Boston Gluten-Free Girls! Tomorrow night I'll be with The Good Eatah at a photo exhibition and Saturday with Allie at the Gluten Free Cooking Spree. Tickets are still available and Vanessa Maltin is going to be there. Maybe I'll bring my Beyond Rice Cakes so she can sign it for me, such a dork. Ooh she totally updated her blog, it looks great, go check it out!

Edited to add: You know, while writing this post, I didn't even think about the fact that the name of this blog is Sugar & Spice... how ironic.

Ooh, blog love! I like it! I feel you on the sugar. The same day I was diagnosed with Celiac my doctor also told me that I had to go on a low sugar, low fat diet. She said that I was pre-diabetes and it was up to me and my food choices if would be in 10 years or 40 years.
But sugar is SO hard to avoid. I also eat the GF waffles, but I only allow myself syrup once a month. Instead I'll eat a slice of 2% cheese or one tsp. of earth balance.
ALSO I am SOOOO jealous of this event you girls get to go to this weekend. NC stinks!

I always thought the Sugar & Spice referred to you ... y'know, the old saying like "girls are made of sugar & spice and everything nice"?? :)
