How are you all doing after your first week of Sugar Free January?
My first week of the challenge went fairly well. I definitely had my moments of craving sweets/desserts, and I felt on the verge of a headache and kind of cranky one day. I also had a couple of minor “cheats” over the weekend, which I’ll talk about more in my post at the end of Sugar Free January.
But for the most part it’s been pretty smooth sailing.
I decided to do a What I Ate Wednesday for y’all on the first day of SFJ. Here’s everything I ate that day:
I was planning on having egg, toast, and fruit, but Reuben made a cherry smoothie so I had that with a fried egg instead.
He made the smoothie with frozen sweet cherries, milk, cream, collagen peptides, and vanilla extract.
For lunch we had leftover spaghetti bolognese (I used this sugar free canned spaghetti sauce) and green peas. I topped it with parmesan cheese and butter (of course).
Besides my other supplements, I also took my ashwagandha extract. It helps to support my adrenals.
I made myself some mushroom hot cocoa to keep me going in the afternoon. The ingredients were:
I might have to share the exact recipe sometime!
I made Healthier Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole for supper. Yum! Of course I topped it with grass-fed butter.
So that’s everything I ate!
I’m curious: what has been your go-to snack for Sugar Free January so far?
