First up an update on my 2 week sugar free challenge
To sum it up in case you don’t want to watch the video – it didn’t help at all with my arthritis (as hoped) but I did lose 2.5kg. The best thing, however, is I really have no desire to eat anything sweet. And my appetite and desire for food is greatly reduced. I really happy I did the challenge and proud of myself for completing it. I’m going to stick with sugar free on a day-to-day basis but will no doubt have a treat or two at special events/occasions. I mean, I can’t see myself never having a cupcake or some chocolate EVER again, even though at the moment I have no desire for it.
This week involved a HUGE grocery shop.
And since my uploaded speed with YouTube is now half decent, I did a grocery haul video for you this week.
On the menu this week. Breakfast included cheese on toast (which I had a real craving for).
French Toast and a green mango smoothie.
Pear (sugar-free) pancake.
Toast with marmalade.
Lunches included Thai takeaway – just one veggie spring roll for me.
and some homemade ice cream for desert.
Most days I had my usual salad but one day I enjoyed a wrap by the pool.
And I also had lunch at a cafe with my best friend, Leanne.
Dinners included Mushroom Risotto.
Taco (TVP) Salad
Quorn burger, sweet potato and veggies.
Creamy Quorn Curry
Bolognase Vol A Vents
Snacks included healthy carrot cookies (recipe from Heather’s Whole Food Kitchen class) – which were actually rather nice and I will definitely be making again).
There were cheese and crackers and a gorgeous plum.
I did also enjoy a Hot Cross Bun (yep, it’s got some sugar but I enjoyed this AFTER my challenge ended).
And spotted (with a squeal of excitement) and bought but not yet eaten – Choc Orange Tim Tams. If you’ve been around here long enough you’ll know how much I love orange chocolate. One day … for a treat with friends.
Tell me, did you find anything squeal worthy in the supermarket this week?
