As you all probably know, Courtney is allergic to sugar. This allergy came about shortly after her last pregnancy, and now, approaching the end of two years of a sugar free life, Courtney has a long list of favorite foods that she’s managed to replace and some she still sorely misses.

Some of the favorites that she’s found sugar-free substitutes for include:

  • Bread
  • Peanut Butter
  • Chocolate
  • Pumpkin pie/cheese cake
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Cookies
  • Cakes
  • Raspberry Lemonade
  • Hot Chocolate

Many of these, she even likes much more than the sugar-filled stuff. But there is a range of things that she still can’t find, like meat. Most meats seem to be cured with sugar of some kind, and while she can certainly do her own chicken, beef, and fish, it’s impossible to find hams, cold cuts, bacon, sausages, and other favorites. So am I surprised to find Courtney fly through the front door five minutes ago announcing in an almost obscene manner that “THERE WILL BE MEAT TONIGHT!!!” Held in her oh-so triumphant hands was a package of sugar-free bacon.

Such is her excitement and joy that she told me that I would be cooking bacon tonight (and immediately) or I would face a most terrible and painful death.

I think it wise to listen very closely to the red-head tonight. Heaven knows I’d like to have a chance at living through this highly anticipated and sought for Thanksgiving Break. 🙂

p.s. For those of you in the sugar-free world who took heart at the hope of a sugar-free bacon… It’s the Kroger brand. Enjoy!

  1. LOL!!!
    I”m sorry but that is a most amusing (and surprisingly, very vivid and realistic) picture. I can completely see it in my mind. COmpletely.

    And you’d better. We all know what Courtney is capable of.

    I almost cooked only half of the package, but the fire in her eyes suggested I do otherwise…. 🙂

    We ended up cooking (and eating) the whole thing with near constant and happy mumbles and sighs issuing from her corner of the table. I have the feeling that bacon may become a mainstay at our table for the next month or so.

    i have a tendency to forget, if they are sugar free, are they often filled with stevia or other sweetner substitutes that don’t cause her the problems? i, like sarah, love the imagery of this post:)
