Hi there challenge peeps! Just a quick check-in to see how you’re doing on Day 2 of our Sugar Free Challenge.
(For those of you not doing the challenge and don’t care about this sugar free stuff, feel free to mosey on outta here or better yet, stay and check out some of my favorite recipes like Marinated Vegetable Salad or to-die-for Brie Pasta.)
So far I’m feeling good and more alert. For me, it’s the best benefit I notice immediately when I’m not eating sugar. No more feeling sluggish. How about you?
I also haven’t been feeling really hungry. WEIRD. [Twilight Zone music]
Here’s what I’ve been eating:
- Breakfast/lunch: 2 pieces of Ezekiel toast and some strawberries
- Snack: 2 clementines
- Dinner: tilipia broiled with some seasonings and a salad with homemade vinaigrette.
- Dessert: Chopped Fruit Salad (didn’t use any sugar or honey, just some lime juice)
- Breakfast: plain organic yogurt mixed with fruit salad
- Lunch/snack: 2 pieces of Ezekiel toast
- Dinner: A spicy Asian-inspired chicken fried brown rice that I just whipped up like Martha Stewart while wearing
a 1950s apron and heelsmismatched sweats. It was sooo good! Check out the recipe here.
The last 2 days are a little weird considering my lunches, were really more like snacks. I’ve been a little busy and ran out the door without special attention on my lunches. But since I haven’t been too hungry, it worked out.
How about you? Are you sticking with it? I’d love to hear from you! Even though we only 8 days left of the Fed Up Challenge, it’s not too late to join. 🙂
