Saying “No” to Sugar Pt. 1

Hello!

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!

    1. I don’t know what I would have done if dates had not have been an option…by Friday the headache really kicked in from sugar withdrawal, but now that the week is over I’m planning on indulging in a little bit of sugar. 🙂
