Erythritol and Sugared Beans without the Sugar

Hello there!

So before I get into today’s post, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all the outpouring of love, support and such positive comments I received from last week’s post (here). That was my post popular post to date. I received so many personal emails and messages from both friends, family and strangers which really means so much to me. Weight gain is a struggle for everyone, so I know a lot of people out there can relate to it. I am definitely feeling a lot better in my body now, and especially by reading people like Molly Galbraith (Is Being Really Lean Worth it? and It’s Hard out Here for a Fit Chick), feel like I’m on the right track towards self-acceptance.

It’s definitely a journey but I am keeping my eyes on the future and knowing that I’m going to come out of this healthier, happier, fitter and more on top in the long run 🙂 Continue reading

Homemade Greek Yogurt

When I first came to Korea, I was pretty appalled by the yogurt selection, and price. Korea loves tiny little portions- which is fine, but when the price is double what you’d pay back home in Canada, for a quarter of the size, you get pretty bummed out. Being the thrifty person that I am, I decided to investigate making my own yogurt. Not only could I save money by making a bigger batch- but I could also control what goes into my finished product. Another problem (for me) with Korean varieties of yogurt, is that they have lots of sugar in them, which I don’t want. So, this was my second reason to opt for a homemade version.

This page will list products I’ve found on Gmarket that I use, or I think are a good price. Continue reading
