We’ve made it to the third and final week of our 21 Day Sugar Detox (21DSD). It’s been refreshing to return to real food, and I’m feeling better than I have in weeks. If you’re also on the detox with us this go around, we hope you’re having a similar experience. Here are some of the things we are cooking this week.
For everyone following along, congratulations on a week into better eating and better health through a 21 Day Sugar Detox. I for one, feel awesome. Days 2-3 I had a little bit of a fog from cutting out the excess sugar in my diet, but I quickly pulled through with some fantastic clarity and more balanced energy. Added bonus: lost a little weight and my pants fit better. If you didn’t catch my initial post about the 21DSD last week, you can see my post on week one here.
I hope everyone is enjoying a bountiful start to their 2014. We are doing the same, and are refocusing our efforts on healthful eating to kick the new year off with some positive momentum. If your holiday season was anything like ours, it was filled with positive and negative stressors, and maybe some (or a lot of) generosity with our 80/20 balance. In the past, we’ve done a number of different diet “resets” with challenges of various lengths. We appreciate their variety, as each has its own unique benefits. This time around, we’re going with the 21 Day Sugar Detox by Diane Sanfilippo, as one of our biggest vices over the holiday season has been indulging in sugar and carbohydrate rich foods/drinks. If you’re interested and want to learn more, definitely check out the details over at Diane’s website Balanced Bites. She also has a podcast, so there are many ways to interact with her and her knowledge.
