This year, I hope to reduce my sugar addiction. I'm noticing it in small ways like the mid afternoon crash and in bigger ones, like my waistline. I asked on facebook about free sugar detox, and was pointed in the direction of Whole30.
Heck, it's only a month, right?
So I need to plan. I jumped in (as is my way) and planned a whole bunch of Whole30 on Pinterest tagged recipes. This made me realize that jumping in isn't going to work, and I need to take some time to plan, while trying out these recipes (and being willing to say ok, this needs cheese to be ok)...
First up, I need to figure out breakfasts. I'm a carb junkie but I'm also in need of really easy, no brainpower, breakfasts on weekdays and surprisingly, even more so on weekends (I take it so leisurely, I often just forget to eat until I'm too hungry).
So this looks good:
- Eat more vegetables
- Eat out no more than 3x/month
- Reduce sugar intake
- Exercise 3x/week (once I get this shoe off)
- My son will cook 1 dinner/week
- Drink 64oz of water/day
- 1 meatless meal/week
This was the first one. It was way too spicy for any of us to eat. It did, though, inspire me to get back to the breakfasts I used to make of roasted sweet potatoes. I'll have to see if I can make a sweet potato hash of some kind. It was awesome to cook it in the crockpot though! Here's the recipe.
