Fructose Fighter: Two months and a Cheesecake later

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Happy Anniversary to me! I've been a good sport for two months now. No added fructose has entered my body - to the best of my knowledge off course!

I didn't even blink a sugar craving eyelid when I was preparing this double layer, Baked Chocolate and Vanilla Cheesecake for our 7 year wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago. 

We celebrated our 7-year itch with blood-red bubbly from Misal (perhaps the most interesting sparking wine I've drank during the last 3 years in Croatia) and a decadent chocolate glaze, over luscious milk chocolate and vanilla layers of baked cream cheese and caramelised biscuits. I'm describing it like I've tasted it! The truth is I didn't. Not even one little crumb! Georgie and half a dozen others at his office described what it tasted like. I drank all the wine though!

But I think my fructose free days are coming to an end. 

I still believe that eating sugar is really bad for our bodies. And I have certainly proven, mainly to myself, that I can quit the sugar addiction, if I put my mind to it.

This does not mean that I'm going to dip my face into a chocolate fountain but I will relax the restrictions a little bit. There are difficult and strange days coming up ahead and this is one less thing  I have to worry about.


  1. Wow....what a fantastic blog. I'm so glad you dropped out of lurker-dom and left a comment on mine so I could find you! Congrats on your fructose purge! I'm lucky in that I'm not a big chocolate fan. That being said, I do love cheesecake, so I'm headed over to check out your anniversary dessert. :)

    1. Thank you so much for dropping by! My comments count now reads 7!!!! It is my lucky number!!
      I consider people who don't like chocolate to be some sort of superior beings, evolved to a level beyond the rest of us slaves of the dark goddess! I envy and admire you :)
