Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Vanilla Extract

Leave a comment

Normally I just grab the vanilla extract of the grocery store shelf and throw it in my cart, go home and happily use it. No problemo. But Today, when I was picking up some vanilla extract the ingredients somehow caught my eye. I always just assumed vanilla extract was plain straight up vanilla extract. Well, it’s not. In that first bottle, there were some nasty ingredients! I picked up another, which contained grain alcohol, then another with SUGAR (SUGAR IN VANILLA EXCTRACT?!). I couldn’t seem to find a nice, plain one that wasn’t a million dollars! I came home to look at the vanilla extract in my cupboard and found it had sugar and some other weird stuff in it. You better believe that went in the trash right away.

So, I guess I’m gonna have to put down for some high quality vanilla extract. Moral of the story- READ THE INGREDIENTS! ALWAYS! ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING YOU BUY! 🙂

A new recipe coming soon!


Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
