Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
So, one of the most challenging things about living a Sugar Free lifestyle, is the normal things you would eat or drink that you don't realize have sugar in them....BBQ sauce, bread, and lots of drinks. And in the same way that it is challenging, one of the most fun and exciting things about my NO Sugar Journey is that I get to explore various recipes and make them my own. I get the challenge of making the things that I want but if I buy from the store have sugar in them. Just like last night, I have been wanting cinnamon-raisin bread for breakfast, but every store bought brand contains sugar, so I just decided to make my own. I found a recipe, made some adjustments, and OMG I finished with some of the best cinnamon-raisin bread I have ever had, and it's sugar free!
Another one of those things I have had to play around with are alcoholic beverages. Mostly, wines are fine to drink because they just contain fructose, the natural sugars from grapes. (check the labels though, and make sure the ingredient list doesn't contain sugar). One thing I have missed big time is the occasional margarita though.
I don't drink a ton, but our town has recently gotten a few more fun wineries, or restaurants that have great margaritas, but of course, I cannot have them. So instead I usually just opt out altogether or find a glass of red wine to enjoy. But I have missed me a good margarita, especially with it getting warm, which means that there are bound to be more BBQ's and outdoor parties happening.
So my friend had me over and they made us Sugar Free Margaritas! They were great!! and in the spirit of May 5th, Cinco De Mayo, I thought that would be a fantastic recipe to share with you all! I changed it up a bit, and made it my own, and I have to say, it is quite yummy.
(A few notes---you can use agave in place of honey. I used orange as the zest for my drink, but you can use lime as well. I just think I would rather eat the orange at the end!)
ENJOY! and tag me if you try this! @brittanysuell #LeaveYourLegacy
