Cookies. Sweet sugary cookies were all I could think about. Every week, my pregnancy cravings got worse and worse. The worst part? I developed gestational diabetes during my pregnancy, meaning I couldn’t eat any cookies at all. This made me very sad and I was left desperate to find a way to curb my cravings 



I thought all hope was lost. I’ll never be to enjoy the cookies I love during this pregnancy…Until one day my husband told me he found a way to curb my cravings with a delicious natural sweetener with no off tastes.


“Are you playing games with me? This sounds too be good to be true” I said.

My husband was very good at controlling my what I ate, quite literally actually. Since I was absolutely terrible in the kitchen, he had taken on the task of being the one who cooked for the family. He knew researched a lot about developing diabetes during pregnancy and made it his goal to keep me within healthy blood sugar levels. When I was diabetic-free, the one thing I could pride myself on when in the kitchen, was my ability to make the best cookies in the world. But once again, I was not allowed to eat those sweet sugary cookies. And I was devastated.


“Honey, I know how much you’ve been craving your beloved cookies. So I’ve been looking at some alternatives for you. I think I’ve found a solution. I heard of a healthy natural sugar replacement which can curb your cravings.” For the first time during my pregnancy, I was hopeful. I stared back him with longing but excited eyes, “You’re lying to me, is there really a natural sugar replacement which can curb my cravings?”   


He noticed how I was looking at him and sighed into a smile, “alright you big baby, let’s go to the store and see which ones you want to try.”


Thankfully, our apartment was a few minutes away from a grocery, allowing us to enjoy a pleasant walk together on a beautiful sunny day. Once we arrived, the blast of the air conditioning felt like a blessing in disguise. No matter how nice it was outside, I was still pregnant, and exercise felt more like a chore than it did before. We browsed through the aisles and noticed that it was hard to find any sweeteners in the diabetics section of the pharmacy. We then thought that maybe it was in the baking aisle, but even then the selection was quite limited. From Paul’s previous research, he had already determined that the selection that was present would not be a good suit for us due to reviews stating that there was an obvious aftertaste and the sweetness level of those sweeteners greatly differed from regular table sugar. We talked to an employee, hoping for some light in the dire situation that we were in.

“So you want a monk fruit sweetener?” This was part of Paul’s request, he heard that by far they were the best tasting. The employee continued, “Well, we don’t stock any here unfortunately, but I heard that Body Energy Club has a larger selection. A friend of mine recently tried one from there called SugarLike, and they said it was really good. Why don’t you try that?”

We gave our thanks and returned to our apartment to grab the car, the nearest Body Energy Club was still a 15 minute drive away and I was not going to walk that distance in this weather. After picking up our own bag of SugarLike, I was finally free to make the cookies of which I had been craving for weeks on end. Before Paul even let me start though, he had to do some more quick research to find out if it was okay for pregnant women. Thankfully, it was. Baking the cookies came at such ease, I did nothing to change the recipe and the taste was the exact same taste I was yearning to have. I was amazed! All I had to do was swap out the 1 cup of sugar the recipe called for with 1 cup of SugarLike and voila! Delicious sugar free cookies I had been longing for!  This is it. This is happiness. Finally with SugarLike I found a way to CURB MY CRAVINGS AND KEEP MY BODY HEALTHY
