October Challenge: No Sweets! Let's lead a dessert-free, sweet-free, and candy-free life... well, for at least the month of October. We can do it! One month. No cake, no candy, no gummi worms, no cookies, no pie , no frappuccinos, no ice cream... etc — no added sugar of any kind. Instead create dessert alternatives like: smoothies, fruit salad, yogurt parfaits, apples with almond or peanut butter... etc. Get creative and share your healthy options with the group by posting a photo or submitting the recipe. You may use 100% pure honey, 100% pure maple syrup, nutmeg, and cinnamon in your recipes.
