You know how I wrote about how good I feel on Clean Eating yesterday? Well, the reality is the summer has gotten the best of me. I am not sticking to it as much as I once was, and sugar has crept back in and is trying to take over my palate. I am falling into the trap of craving sugar day in and day out.
The sad part? I’m not even indulging in sweets each day. But the added sugar in my coffee creamers, fruits, and the occasional dessert are really adding up. That adding up leads me to crave sugar and carbs more and more. So, I decided with some prompting from the girls at work to jump into Whole 30 to help me get back into the routine of Clean Eating. I think this will be a good way to hit the reset button on saying no to sugar.
The Whole 30 Program eliminates dairy, sugar, legumes, alcohol and grains. You can read all about it here. Here’s what I’ve got planned for this first week of Whole 30 Eating:
Breakfasts: Banana or Apple with Almond Butter or Boiled Eggs
Lunches: Leftovers from Dinner or Salad with fruits and Chicken
Lemon Pepper Tilapia with Kale Chips and Strawberries
Steak with Sweet Potato & Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Balsamic Chicken with Cauliflower Mash
Leftovers or Salad with Chicken
