Welcome to Yart via here.
Nothing too drastic here, so no need to panic.
Positives are getting the whole weeks shopping done (2 stores) and being home by 9:15am. Trying to reduce sugar where possible - not always easy - see here
Not that I am an advocate of some of the things some authors eat instead of sugar such as using huge amounts of Dextrose!
I usually cut sugar when baking by 1/3rd to 1/2 with no noticable effect on the product with regards to taste or texture. As we cook almost everything from scratch very little sugar (or salt) gets added but we always need to read labels on canned or packet products to be sure.
We are now tackling our morning bowl of porridge which has more sugar on it than we want. Recently we have substituted the sugar for desiccated coconut plus 1 teaspoon of jam which is quite a bit less sweet so is taking some time to get used to! Although very slightly more calorific coconut does also have some benefits.
Negatives are hitting and killing a blackbird in the car:(
Also we were £17.50 over for our food and toiletries shopping for the month. Like I said, certainly as far as the shopping goes, nothing too drastic as we have been stocking up on things that need doing every now and then such as toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and the odd thing for Christmas.
Ah well, must do better next month. Don't forget if you are a UK resident, that British Summer Time ends at 2am on Sunday 25th October when clocks go back 1 hour!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
