Can anyone tell me if there are sugar free desserts on NCL GEM?
I'm not only watch sugar and also carbs, do you think it would be helpful to contact the NCL department that handles special dietary needs. Looking at pictures and menus for appetizers, main course, etc., don't think I'll have any problems, however sure would be nice when desserts are served in the MDR's & specialty restaurants to have an option??Most "sugar free" desserts are very high in carbs. Often the total carb count is higher on sugar free desserts than the sugar included version. That's an observation from on shore; I've never seen any nutritional information on the desserts on board (but I also haven't been looking for it, so they might have it).
I have type 1 diabetes (amongst a few other autoimmune conditions ) and live Keto as well as gluten free. I find that, if I stay true to both (Stevia is my friend), my dessert options often times look a lot like custard, panna cotta, ice cream... or more custard :P This I can make work with Keto... it's the grains--whether they be gluten free or not--that bust a blood sugar spike that disrupts my spin.I am sure you will find something for your 'sweet tooth'.
The one exception I do make during the cruise is that I will allow a modicum of artificial sweetners to pass my lips
