Sugar Free Sunday – April 10th, 2011

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration? You bet!

I wanted to start off this weeks Sugar Free Sunday by sending out a huge shout out to all the bloggers who did bake sales for Japan. Steph’s Bite by Bite sums up the sentiments most of us felt:

Seeing the devastation in Japan has left me speechless.

I can’t imagine first having my homeland rocked by an earthquake, then overcome by a tsunami, only to be left with a threat of nuclear proportions.

It’s moments like these that almost make you feel helpless. I wanted to help, but I didn’t know how.

To see them step up and make such a difference, calls for a special cheers! Kudos to Tuna Toast for raising $15,484 and The Tomato Tart for raising $8,269.

As a side note, Bake sale for Japan has raised $124,000 and still counting!

  2. oops- I forgot to put my title on my post. Well I guess it’s pretty obvious it’s a strawberry tart, but it’s also dairy and gluten free 🙂

      Hi Eryn! I’ve updated the link to say “Strawberry Tart”. This recipe is amazing! I can’t imagine using avocados in dessert but now that I see it… it makes complete sense! YUM!! I have to try this… and what a coincidence that I have 2 avocados that need to be used today! ;o)

    What a great carnival idea. I love it. I’ll be checking in every Sunday to oogle.

    • Raj says:

      Aren’t the recipes shared here pretty awesome?! Maybe you could add your creations to the ogle lineup too Tracee 🙂

    I shared my grain-free matzoh balls. I hope you like them!

    • Raj says:

      I never realized Matzoh balls were considered the “Jewish penicillin”.. very interesting.. sounds similar to the chicken noodle soup. I’ve actually heard that chicken soup reduces inflammation. (One of the reasons why it is so highly recommended in the SCD diet)

      Thanks for the share Jill!

  5. Jill says:

    Hi Raj,
    I was actually referring to the chicken broth and didn’t make that clear… But hey, if it takes matzoh balls to get someone to love chicken broth — that’s great!The broths have a lot of the collagen and gelatin from the bones and joints and that is very soothing to the mucous membranes of the intestines. I’m sure there are other healing elements in the soup that we have not even identified yet!
