DAY 5 & 6 – SUGAR DETOX

After a brief germ encounter that forced me into a little R&R, I’m back to journal my Sugar Detox experience.

Let me first say this about being sick, I totally feel that my illness cleared up much faster due to the lack of sugar in my diet while I was sick, plus all the additional nourishing foods I consumed (i.e. bone broth)

Back in the day, when I had a cold and ate a conventional diet,  I would consume (in mass quantities)  ice cream, hot chocolate, hot tea & cookies and  just about any other comfort food I could get my hands on.  Since I’ve made health a priority in my life, my feelings towards food has definitely shifted,  I now use food to nourish vs. comfort.

Now, regarding the “detox”, I had a few cravings for warm apple pie a ’la mode, but being that I have celiac and gluten free apple pies aren’t a dime a dozen, I had to come up with an alternative. I made a warm Cinnamon Apple Crumble paired with a cup of coffee with coconut milk.  Ok, it’s not like eating a hot piece of pie at a diner, but it had to do….and it did. Find alternatives to the sugary junk you’re craving, have fun with it.
