Sugar Free New Year

Happy New Year! After a month of Christmas cookies and a relaxing week at St. Kitts in the West Indies, I felt like I needed to get ahold of my diet. I did a Sugar Free diet for the past week and a half and have noticed a difference! I feel better, I look slimmer and have really enjoyed eating healthy! I will include what I ate below - I found a daily diet on Pinterest that I referenced. I really stuck to only a few of the meal recommendations and just repeated them. I really have enjoyed this way of eating and plan to stick to it for now.

Breakfast - Smoothies! Green juice (bought Naked "Green Machine") or made an 8 oz. almond milk (unsweetened), 1 tbsp. cocoa powder (unsweetened) and 1 banana blended in a blender.

Lunch - 1) 1 cup spinach with 2 scrambled eggs and half an avocado sliced on top with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar dressing. 2) 2 pieces of bacon, half an avocado, sliced tomato in a tortilla. 3) 2-3 cups of vegetables with 1/2 cup of hummus.

Dinner - 1) Cabbage Detox Soup, recipe here. 2) Burrito bowl: brown rice, avocado, 1 tbsp. cheese, tomato, black beans and a squirt of hot sauce. 3) Tuna salad on a bed of spinach. 4) Grilled salmon with roasted cauliflower.

Snacks - Larabars, nuts/seeds, raw veggies with hummus.

*Dessert - Sugar Free Mug Cake: 1 banana, 1 egg, 1 tbsp. cocoa powder blended. Bake at 350 in a mug for 15-20 minutes.
