The Not Sugar Project (Day 4)
(Banana and double chocolate cupcakes, made and baked by the Cat, on her birthday)
The Cat has been toying with the idea for quite some time now.
In other words, the Cat knows that sugar is bad for her, and she knows she is addicted. And although having been on Atkins for almost a year now, the Cat always found an excuse to break the pattern and eat some sweets and then gain some weight and then start again and then... Oh, I think you get the picture.
To be honest, the inspiration for this were two fashion bloggers: the lovely Thalia from Life in Athens (who as we all know started the Not Shop Project) and Nina Malvada aka kataifi from Las Ninas y Los Ninos, who is a fellow sugar-worshipper and suggested the name "The Not Sugar Project"!
So, here it is, the Cat has started it.
It's been 4 days now, and she has not eaten ANY sugar! (maximum sugarless period EVER has been two weeks. By then, the Cat wanted to eat like, an entire army of chocolate soldiers)
But now she's sharing it with you guys, she's got an extra reason not to go back and eat ALL of these!
Well, ok. Life without sugar does not equal an eternity in bacon and eggs hell. She does have the Atkins bars to help her get through these really tough afternoons at the office.
(remember this picture? It's the one the Cat took for her Atkins Article, on LoveCooking_GR, http://www.lovecooking.gr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=831:2010-03-12-14-57-18&catid=34:scientific-articles )
But the Cat needs something more, in order to live sugarless and happy.
She needs this.

And thanks to lovely Liz, the Cat realised that it's possible to bake beautiful staff without sugar. So the Cat has searched the market for the appropriate sugar substitute and...
Well, she will let you know in following Not Sugar Project posts!
