I was so excited to see your post at CSL!! I make the seed-filled nori rolls all the time :)

I'm so glad I found your blog through CSL!

I gave up sugar about three years ago and lasted about nine months. Then, I moved to a different state and sugar managed to creep its way back into my diet (along with a lot of other nasties). I'm determined to get back to feeling great, and cutting out sugar is high on my list of priorities.

Can't wait to try some of your recipes and tips!
