At the beginning of the year I embarked on Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar’ program. I had to be talked into it because I LOVE(d) sugar. It actually went surprisingly well and Hubby and I were both able to kick the sugar habit quite easily.
Since then we’ve fallen off the wagon. Well, more like dangling off the sides, desperately snatching up little morsels of chocolate as the wagon navigates the bumpy path of work, family and stress! So no, we don’t feel like complete failures, perhaps just a little lazy.
Sarah is throwing down the challenge again in the lead up to Christmas – a very good time to do it! It starts on the 29th of October.
I’m taking the opportunity to re-crash my Sugar Crash Challenge.
The good thing is we know we can succeed and one of the reasons I think we found it easier than some is that we actually eat pretty well as a family. Whenever I shared what we were eating for IQS we got a lot of positive feedback and request for recipes.
This time around my focus will be on using our previous experience and a review of Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar Cookbook (aff) to highlight some family friendly and budget friendly ways to succeed at I Quit Sugar.
So what do you think?
Have you wanted to try IQS but thought:
- my partner won’t want to do it with me and I don’t want to cook additional meals?
- my kids won’t eat what I make them?
- I don’t want to do it on my own?
I’ll be sharing how we did it as a family and I will definitely be focusing on how to do it on a budget as part of my Crash Ca$h challenge. Just recently we managed to eat by spending only $21 on extra food for the week. It was pretty much IQS friendly too.
My updates throughout the 8 weeks will be a mixture of posts on the blog, but I will also share my ideas and recipes via a regular email update. To sign up all you need to do is join the Crash Test Community and select ‘Sugar Crash’ under subscription options.
So, are you ready to do this?
To get started:
- Buy the I Quit Sugar eBook or you can also purchase the eBook and Cookbook together in a bundle (aff links – which means I get a small commission for getting you on board, which is much appreciated, thanks!)
- Sign up for Sarah’s summer program newsletter and like her Facebook group

I hope to see you in the FB group and look forward to sending you updates and family friendly recipes starting on the 29th of October.
