My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

My Sugar-free Pantry

1st row, Sea Salt Grinder, Tamari Soy Sauce, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar from the Mother, Chili Sauce, FRUIT JUICE sweetened cereal, Xylitol ( a sweetener), Avocado Oil, Maple Sugar

2nd row, Stevia by the spoonful (sweetener), agave nectar (sweetener), organic coconut oil, Fructose, another sweetener, Whey protein.

As you can see, I found a fructose-sweetened boxed cereal so I don't have to rely on my home-made granola and oatmeal constantly. I can add whey to smoothies to make a smoothie a meal with protein. I have a few new sweeteners to try to replace cane sugar. This is a new jar of coconut oil I found in the health food store today. Many sugar free recipes call for it and I have not been able to find it in a regular grocery store. Maybe some of my granola recipes will taste better now.

Other items in my pantry that are an improvement (but has nothing to do with cane-sugar):

I switched to sea salt a long time ago to replace factory manufactured salt (yes, Morton's). Even Morton's sea salt even has stabilizers in it. I've been wondering if some kinds of salt have a higher contribution to blood pressure and health problems then sea salt. Using freshly grounded salt also cuts down on the amount of salt used because the aroma contributes to flavor. Tamari soy sauce is fermented more healthfully than plain soy sauce. Organic Apple Cider from the Mother is the most healthful vinegar. Be careful with Balsamic. It is carbohydrate dense and often has added caramel coloring. There is so much more to write about... I'm sure I will, soon. I hope these items helps you find replacements in your diet.

They should make more options for cereals with the fruit juice sweetner. More of a variety.
