As I said in my previous post, I would share my experience of no sugar, dairy or carbs this past week. Technically, I didn’t fully eliminate dairy because I would put a little bit of feta cheese on my salads.
I even managed to keep a food diary during my experience, so I could keep track of what I was eating. I literally ate the same breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, so that made keeping the diary a little bit easier.
Here’s an overview of what I ate:
Breakfast: 1-2 egg omelet seasoned with salt & pepper and a side of either blueberries or strawberries.
(For the egg omelet, I used the Stone Wave Microwave Cooker. Using the Stone Wave was what made me being able to have an omelet every morning possible. It was so easy to use. I just cracked an egg or two into the cooker, used a fork to quickly whisk and added salt & pepper and then it went into the microwave for 1 1/2 min. And that was it! I highly recommend purchasing it if you are looking for a fast way to cook eggs, etc.)
Snack: a handful of unsalted cashews & almonds
Lunch: a salad with shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, tomato, feta cheese and I used Newman’s Own Olive Oil & Vinegar dressing (my favorite dressing!)
I would usually also have a small handful of blueberries and a spoonful of almond butter.
In the afternoon, I would enjoy a cup of Twining’s Pure Camomile Tea.
Dinner: 1 burger patty seasoned with salt & pepper
(I wanted to go all in with the no sugar, dairy or carb, so the burger patty was just the ground beef made into a patty and seasoned with salt & pepper)
I would have the burger with a side salad of shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, tomato, feta cheese and Newman’s Own Olive Oil & Vinegar dressing
Throughout the whole week besides the cup of chamomile tea in the afternoon, I only drank water the whole week. I did add a slice of cucumber to make cucumber water, and now I’m onto adding a slice of lemon to my water bottle.
Lemon and cucumber water have so many good health benefits, and so does chamomile tea!
I didn’t really have a dessert, although I did have 1 medjool date after dinner a few times throughout the week. I did also have a few almond butter oat cookies that are compliable with the no sugar plan.
I am currently working on the recipe for the almond butter oat cookies that I made. So, hopefully I will have that for you soon!
I hope you enjoyed this first part of saying “no” to sugar!
Stay tuned for part 2!
