If you follow me on IG, you were able to get a glimpse of my family’s 1-week challenge to detox sugar. For those of you interested in the meal plan I used, I thought I’d post it here so you can refer back to it. My concluding thoughts and lessons are at the end of this article. Enjoy!
The Boundaries: 7 days. No sweeteners, processed or natural, of any kind. No white flour because flour turns into sugar in your body. Fruit, whole sprouted grains, and full-fat dairy were allowed.
The Meal Plan: (links to recipes provided when possible)
Breakfast: Chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie (plain whole yogurt, whole milk, cacao powder, frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, spinach, ice, etc.)
Snack 1: Green apple slices with sugar-free peanut butter (read the peanut butter labels!)
Lunch: Chopped chicken Cobb salad–chicken, avocado, tomato, carrot, boiled egg, red leaf lettuce, and homemade balsamic vinegar dressing (1 part EVOO, 2 parts balsamic vinegar, squeeze of dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to taste).
Snack 2: Veggies and hummus (read the hummus labels!)
Dinner: Shrimp ceviche–(I added avocado), organic corn tortilla chips, and homemade Mexican rice.
