I blended up a frozen banana with a little skim milk and it was delicious. Perfect treat in this hot weather.

Salt craving
1yr
I’ve been craving salt lately. Is this related to not having added sugar? Is anyone else craving salt?? 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • annefood I do not believe that there is a nutritional correlation, but it could be that you’re reaching for salty snacks since sweet ones are off the menu. Or perhaps the heat?
  • shmoozii I think you’re right. It’s a little weird is all.
  • garv Not weird at all . Salt does provide satiation.
Agave nectar

Is that allowed?
  • annefood Nope! Agave nectar is an added sugar (as are maple syrup, coconut nectar, honey, etc.).
  • ElanaG I didn’t think so, so I used half a pass since I ate a couple spoonfuls of Greek yogurt with it (siggi).
    Hard to find stuff while away on business!
  • annefood Good call. Yes it is indeed!

How do the streaks work?? I don’t really understand. Mine is always zero :(

  • annefood A streak is when you don’t use any full or half passes, and thus successfully avoid added sugar. No passes used for 3 days and you have a 3 day streak, for example. It resets when you use one- I...
  • shmoozii I was wondering about that too.

It says 3 grams of sugar, but I don’t see sugar in the ingredients unless it’s disguised as something else?? Can I eat this trader joe muesli?
  • annefood Hey! The sugar is coming from the raisins, pear juice concentrate, and dried apples. Current nutrition labels show total sugar, which is a combination of any intrinsic sugars (from fruit, grains,...

Is bread a NO on this challenge?! I just realized some fresh baked breads probably have sugar??? Help! Tips on which to avoid? Or avoid all?

  • DietID_TeamDietitians Great question!! Some breads are definitely allowed, but most actually have some added sugar. It's best to check the ingredient label to be sure. Some favorites we love: Ezekiel sprouted grain...
  • joywang Hi there! I wanted to give a heads up if you ever check the label and it still says for example, 1g sugar even though there's no added sugar in the ingredients, that can be due to the natural...

What’s a good non sugar item to eat after an intense workout? I would usually do a glass of chocolate milk after running but I am starving after playin an hour and a half of basketball!
  • kmkelman I like the peanut butter rx bar. Or but butter in a banana. Handful of almonds
  • annefood Anything with good carbs and protein that sounds tasty to you. Nuts and fruit per @kmkelman is a great suggestion if you want something light. Or plain yogurt with fresh fruit- you could turn that...
