Is it possible to have a sugar-free Christmas?

If you are fighting a Candida overgrowth or you feel that sugar is bad news for your health condition (asthma for instance can be made worse by sugar and sugar contributes to health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity) or even worried about sugar aging your skin, you may be a little apprehensive about the Christmas food. I hope this blog post helps but please don't worry if you slip, you can get right back on track after Christmas.
Here are some recipes that might help you stay sugar free this Christmas.

Tofu turkey http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/meatless-monday-turkey-style-tofu-with.html If you are on a candida diet and are avoiding wheat, use gluten free bread to make the breadcrumbs.  Instead of bouillon use pink salt.


  
A Trio of Nut Roasts - http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/meatless-monday-trio-of-nut-roasts.html Nutritional yeast is fine to use if you have a Candida overgrowth as the yeast is deactivated.  If you are on a candida diet and are avoiding wheat, use gluten free bread to make the breadcrumbs and substitute quinoa for couscous. Instead of bouillon use pink salt. Omit mushrooms.  




Stuffed Butternut Squash - http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/meatless-monday-thanksgiving-special.html Use chopped red peppers instead of mushrooms. Instead of bouillon use pink salt.

If you are at the stage where you have reintroduced fruit into your diet, these jellies would be a special (but not regular) treat. Fruits do have natural sugars but all of the following have no added sugar.
