  1. Oh rhubarb – I am longing for some ‘fruit’ didn’t realise I could have rhubarb. Thanks for that.


    • I know! I’m exactly the same – have been craving some fruit, looking longingly at the peaches and nectarines in the vege shops. But a bit of rhubarb will do the trick! 🙂 Glad I could help.



  2. Gonna get some rhubarb today defo. I might sweeten it with my sugar free caramel syrup.Really feel for you over the afternoon snack – you did good girl, you did good.


    • Ooh, I have some of that caramel syrup. The one I have is flavoured with Maltitol though, I think – a sugar alcohol which is not as carb-free as sucralose. People with diabetes find that it really affects their blood sugar levels, which to me is an indicator that it’s not great for people following low-carb diets.

      (Can you tell I bought all my “sugarfree” stuff before I learned anything about what “sugarfree” really means? 😉


  3. I didn’t know we are allowed to have rhubarb on the diet, that’s great! Maybe I could make something sweet-ish of it…

    Good job resisting the cookie temptation – it is certainly the hardest thing to do, resisting temptations at work I mean.


    • I know! Hurray for rhubarb, it’s making my yoghurt eating so much easier! 🙂 No more fruit yoghurts for me, it’s rhubarb all the way! (and it keeps you regular!)
