Sugar Free

Wk 1 preparation – no processed foods and just finished off the fruit (1 pineapple 4 organic apples in my kitchen was only sugar ingested this wk)

Lost 1/4 of stone

Wk 2 No fruit sugar.  Eat as much as what I want to eat just no sugar.  Continued lost another 1/4 of stone

Oatcakes with nut butter or nuts like brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds or cashew.

Porridge half oats/barley with loads of cinnamon and nuts.

You can eat meat, , eggs etc just after being in Switzerland Im having a break from them.  If I crave them or out for diner will order this option.

NO yeast allowed in diet and of course no Alcohol or other ferments except for yoghurt.

Fruits allowed are lemons, limes, tomatoes and avocados which i consume in abundance.  

Plenty of good omega 3 sources and i love to include pumpkin oil as a dressing over rice dishes.

Shopping list, carrots, cucumber, lettuce, rice, beans, tomatoes, cauliflower, steak, avocados, lemons, ginger, nuts, asparagus, mushrooms, courgettes, aubergines, organic nairns oat cakes, organic nut butters cashew, almond (peanut if you like i don’t use it too often).  Use plenty of herbs and spices to flavour food i love turmeric, curry, ginger, garlic Himalyan salt and black pepper. And cook using organic coconut oil

Near end of week 2 I started eating meat again – I only eat Lamb or Beef as the quality is the best here.  I also eat fish.  Love pulses and eat loads of organic butterbeans, aduki, lentils, black eye peas, etc.  

I did allow myself a smoothie – it was coconut milk, brazil nuts 5-6 and 1/2 avocado.  Cinnamon.  

I snack on dry fried seed mix of pumpkin, sunflower, linseed or organic popcorn with salt cooked in coconut oil.

My skin is much clearer, I’ve lost my holiday weight and fun February gain, I can taste sweet in things and am less hungry.  Im aiming to do another week yet if I did not thats ok too as I don’t have a candida overgrowth problem.  If you do have a candida over growth problem (use candida spit test to help investigate)  sugar free would be required for a month.

This is my second time doing sugar free and 1st time was for a month as if I ask people to do something I have to be willing to do it myself and I must say the benefits on my pallet where amazing.  I know find almonds and almond nut butter so sweet.  

There are plenty of Sugar Free recipes and cookbooks available one I love is the Extra Virgin Kitchen,IMG_5242
