Good things come to those who wait…

To all of my amazing, supportive readers: The wait is over! You’ll be seeing a new recipe posted every week or so. I can’t make hard and fast promises, but I WILL attempt to designate a few hours each weekend to post, so as to use up some of this stevia (and erythritol! oh my) I received from the wonderful Ron Redding over at NuNaturals. Furthermore, I’d like to show my appreciation those of you who have used my iherb.com rewards code (see sidebar) and who have made Paypal donations. I am able to restock baking supplies once again! Since I’m a full time college student, every little bit really helps.

Stay tuned! I should have a new post up, featuring a brand new tasty sugar-free dessert, by **March, as I have my first major round of exams to prepare for up until then! Spring break is coming up in early March, which will give me a breather. Sorry for the delay, folks. The recipes are ready to go, but writing up a thoughtful post takes time. If I don’t respond to your first email, please try me again, as I have been on the computer less and less as of late, and sometimes my inbox gets backed up. Thank you for your patience!

**Edited

Again, I can’t thank y’all enough for your supportive emails, comments, and for spreading the word about sugar-free living! Feel free to contact me via email instead of in the comments please. Have fun with your healthy baking, all!

All the best,
Lauren

    Hey Lauren, I made your Red Velvet cake last night! It took me 3 tries to get it right…the first time, I put too much cocoa. The second, I accidentally doubled the butter. The third time it was JUST right! :) Thanks so much. You really inspire me, and help me enjoy this WOE!

    Lauren, thank you. Even in your absence, I've found your website not only a source of good information, but also of inspiration. I'm a type 2 diabetic with a history of bulemia so I don't dare (or want) to declare foods off limits. However, being able to find healthier, more balanced ways to indulge is critical to all kinds of well being. You are, so far, the only source of information on items such as erythritol that I've found. Thank you for all you've done, and for what is yet to come.

    So glad to see you're back! I only found your blog a couple weeks ago but the recipes I've tried have been fabulous. I just made my second loaf of chocolate zucchini bread. Mmmmmmmmmm… Soooo good. (And so filling too!) I remember how it was trying to bake in the college dorm. It got easier when some of my friends persuaded me to come live in their co-op with a big kitchen, but I was glad to finally get my own little apartment with kitchen my last year there. I had no lack of visitors either! 😉 (They called me Betty Crocker.)

    I have a question about erythritol, how do you count its carbs? I bought some from whole foods and it has a lot of carbs, but no calories. Are there numerous types of erythritol with lower carb counts?

    I just found your blog. Someone posted a link to it on one of my Weston A. Price yahoo groups. Your recipes are phenomenal!
    My husband and 3 year old son have turned their noses up at my attempts at coconut flour pancakes. Your flapjacks, however, were eaten with relish.
    I tried your tortilla wrap recipe tonight. I was so excited to try it I went out today to get a silicone mat. It worked great and I can't wait to have some wraps and mexican food. And try the chocolate bean cake, and chocolate apple bread…

    Just wanted to say that I ABSOLUTELY love your blog! I have recently decided to go on a low carb diet (originally was gluten free, then changed to no grain and no artificial & high glycemic natural sugar) for health reasons. I have been dying for something sweet and ended up nibbling on fruit to satisfy my sugar cravings. It's a pain to go out with friends who consume so many things high in carbs, but I managed to keep on going. I feared the day I would have to go to a friends or relatives birthday party because of ice cream and cake, so I looked for a dessert that was low in carbs to bring along. I stumbled upon your site, and I am so happy I did, you really know your stuff! I too, have recently been reading a lot on nutrition. I'm actually a biology major and wish to become a physician assistant. Thanks again for all of your recipes! You are an amazing and awesome person!

    time4t, the carbs in erythritol don't count. Sugar alcohols like erythritol, xylitol, and sorbitol appear as carbs on the nutrition label, but the body does not process them as carbs. Subtract sugar alcohol carbs from the total carbs when figuring the carb count of a food that contains them.

    Beware of sweeteners that are blends of a non-carb sweetener and something like lactose or dextrose, though. Those are real sugars and contain real carbs.

    I have recently (one week ago!) given up refined sugar and flour to attempt to get rid of some chronic health problems after doctors didn't help me… and I feel SO amazing eating a plant-centered diet! (I am also giving up meat except for seafood). I just wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration.
    Your blog means a lot to people like me, who want to enjoy life and satisfy their sweet tooth without resorting to harmful habits.
