Today, I ate these things.

grapes, strawberries, and a toasted hamburger bun with almond butter.

We were out of bread.

Delicious Meeker-made veggie pasta.

As I was mmming and ahhhing, he said, Don’t even ask how much butter I used.


Sweet potato fries on a bed of spinach. Balsamic vinegar and mustard on top.

veggies and brown rice

Beyond (for the month of July), I’m giving up sugar for a few reasons.

First, I want to pay more attention to what’s in my food. My hope is that searching that ingredients list for any added sugar is going to open my eyes as to other weird things as well.

Secondly, I’ve been eating way too many cookies lately. My sugar-snacking needs to come to an end. My post-baby-belly needs to disappear. End of story.

I know, I know…Elise was the first to point it out: the name of my blog is Yes, I want cake. I still plan to love cake. I’m not giving all sweet things, just added sugar. Agave, maple syrup, stevia, and of course, fruit are all fair game. I’m not trying to make myself miserable, just more aware.

Anyone out there want to join me?
