Editor’s note: This post is from March 15, 2015, the first attempt at two years without sugar.
Feeling charged up today by my accomplishment to make it through Day 1. Planning on Day 2 success with the help of a refrigerator full of leftover steamed vegetables.
Update: Made it through the end of the day with the help of a small snowstorm which kept me inside and away from temptation. Now, onto Day 3!
Use excuses to avoid going out when you’re hungry.
Rainbow chard, red cabbage, asparagus, carrots
Challenges are the usual. Skipping the vanilla soy latte at Starbucks, avoiding the bakery case at Whole Foods. I bought a Kit’s Fruit + Nut bar while shopping at WF instead. No added sugar, just organic dates, organic peanuts, organic almonds, sea salt.
Swiss Chard, leeks
Quinoa, spring onions, garlic, garbonzo beans
Manna multigrain bread
Kit’s Fruit + Nut bar
Go to the grocery store after eating so you are less vulnerable to snacking while you shop. If you have an irresistable urge to snack, have a mental list ready of snacks that work within your rules.
Product Tip – snacks with no sugar added
