The Sugar-Free Challenge is Officially over! I’ve had so much fun these past ten days, and I hope you have, too.

A couple other bloggers created some delectable-looking sugar-free recipes during the challenge, too. Check ’em out:

The Flourishing Foodie’s Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cups

Mowenackie’s Bangkok Noodles with Spicy Tomatoes

The Mommy Bowl’s Indian Spiced Rice Pudding

Damjana Likes it Wholesome’s Bear-the-Cutie Fudge Balls

Whole Wheat or Bust’s Personal Vanilla Blueberry Pie

Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:

What do you think of me posting everyday like I have during the challenge? Do you like it, or do you think it is too much?

I don’t know if I will be able to post everyday; but if I do, not all of the posts will have big recipes with health facts diagrammed and everything. Some of them would be simple posts, maybe a picture or two of something I did/ate. I wouldn’t be like the amazing Leanne who not only posts a fabulous recipe everyday, but her photos are all worthy of a prestigious food magazine. I don’t know how you do it, Leanne!

    I liked having you post every day!

  2. The dark chocolate Raspberry cupcakes look wonderful!
    PLease stop by and say hi.

  3. I love your daily posts, even if you just chose your favorite recipe. Oh oh… why don’t you do like “track back Tuesdays” or something where you highlight one of your favorite recipes from your blog. Or, someones from the past??
    Thanks for your kind words, Alex. Honestly, I don’t know how I do it either. I guess I just LOVE food a lot and I have all this pent up food energy?! Thanks again, your comment has made my day 🙂

  4. this was an awesome challenge alex!! i loved seeing all the amazing meals!! its rly gotten me to think more about my added sugar intake!

    I really like daily posts – even w/out recipes. Ultimately, though, you have to do what feels right to you or you’ll just start to get burnt out!

  6. I thought it was great that you posted everyday during the challenge!! If you feel like you can keep up with it, I would love reading it everyday, but if you feel its too much, then just post every few days. I also love simple little pics. Maybe a picture one day of a recipe to come in a few days of something like that!

  7. Congrats to everyone who participated!! Those recipes look great!

  8. I feel the same way about Leanna, she is super woman! I wish my photos were 1/5th as pretty are hers!

    And I love you posting every day, but I know it is hard…. or near impossible, for me, atleast. But you definitely could do simple posts sometimes, I do! Sometimes I just like to drop in to say HI or just share a delicious recipe. Not every post is supposed to evoke grand emotion… yaknow?

    • Yeah, yeah, true! It looks like a lot of people like me posting everyday, and you know what? I liked posting everyday! It made me feel organized? I don’t know, I’ll have to think about it some more…

    I love reading daily posts (especially during the summer), but when I’m busier with school, etc., I don’t have time to read all of my google reader queues and I end up with like 500 or more unread posts! :S >_<'' So, it's ultimately TOTALLY up to you. And I wouldn't feel pressured AT ALL to post a recipe every day if you indeed blog every day because, except for a few people (who are awesome) or unless it's your job to blog, there just is too much work involved in posting a beautifully photographed recipe every day!
    Plus, "daily eats" posts and random musings are fun!

    Posting every day is a tall order (at least for me), but I certainly don’t have any objections. I love your blog, so I’d love to see more! Thanks for the shout out and for hosting the sugar-free challenge. I really enjoyed learning more, finding new foods and finding new blogs. I will definitely continue to look for ways to eat sugar-free. Have you had any requests for a repeat challenge? I’m sure the word has spread through others’ blogs.

    Curious to know how you handle eating at restaurants or even at other people’s houses. Maybe topics for future posts?

    Have a great weekend!

    • I actually have had some requests! And I will definitely do it again!

      Good idea for post. But here are some things I do:

      Avoid things I know always have sugar: premade dressings, ketchup, sweet sauces, dessert. Honestly, if there is one gram of sugar in something I don’t know about, I am still fine. I just try and avoid what I know as much as possible. That is one thing I hate, though-not knowing exactly what I’m eating!

  11. When I first started blogging, I got stressed about posting everyday because I was worried I wouldn’t have enough information to share. I think simple posts are great. They’re like a little peak into what makes all of us the bloggers we are. I’m sure you’re wayyy more than recipes and health facts. 🙂

  12. Jess says:

    Personal vanilla blueberry pie?! UHMMM YES PLEASEEE.

    I love your posts..but no pressure! Post when you can 🙂

  13. Katie says:

    I really enjoyed the daily posts as well! Not every entry needs to be lengthy and elaborate. Short posts, or picture only posts are fun too. Getting more of a glimpse into bloggers lives is always interesting, but of course only share what your comfortable with. I love your blog either way!

  14. Damjana says:

    Aww, the bear was so happy to her he was featured in the nicest sugarfree girl’s post! He’s sending you over a big bear-hug 🙂
    Thanks for hosting the challenge, I really enjoyed it. You cared so much about us!

  15. Joelle says:

    How do we find the recipe for the bear fudge balls?

  16. Thanks for the shout out 🙂

  17. I LOVED THIS CHALLENGE!! Thank you for all of the hard work you put into it!
