Day Eight of The 21-Day Sugar Detox & Kale-Bacon-Sauerkraut Hash Recipe

It’s been an entire week since I began The 21-Day Sugar Detox.  Today was weigh-in day.  Since I’m trying to maintain my weight and not lose it,  I was happy to see that I’d only lost a pound.  I’ve been keeping my good fat levels high.  It seems to be working.

Before I get into what I ate today, I’d like to announce and awesome giveaway.  A few weeks ago, when I attended the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo, I met Michael, the creator of Mikey’s Muffins.  These are paleo friendly English-style muffins.  These frozen muffins are made with very few ingredients.  They are available online, in three flavors; Original, Toasted Onion, and Cinnamon Raisin.  I am giving away 5 boxes of Mikey’s Muffins to 5 lucky readers.  All you have to do is leave a Comment  in any post, starting today and ending Sunday May 18, at 6:00 PM (CST).  The winners will be randomly drawn from those who leave comments.  Each time you submit a comment, your name will go into a hat.  On Sunday evening, I will draw 5 names from that hat.   I’ll be posting the winners on Monday May 19, 2014.  Oh, and you get to choose the flavor you would like. Tomorrow, I’ll be creating a delicious Cajun dessert recipe, using the Cinnamon Raisin muffins.  I’ll give you all the information on where you can order your own Mikey’s Muffins.  I’m also working with Michael to get a coupon code for you to save some cash when ordering.  I should have that worked out by the end of the week. Tonight, I tried the Toasted Onion muffin.  I only ate half because I didn’t want to stray too far from my detox.  The only ingredient that is a little iffy is the baking powder.  It’s usually acceptable as paleo; but, not on The 21-Day Sugar Detox.  However, testing products is a big part of my business.  A girl’s got to eat you know, so to speak.  So, in the name of business, I sampled. The texture of Mikey’s Muffins is quite delightful.  The flavor is pretty amazing.  Considering these muffins are paleo, I found myself very impressed.  I ate mine plain; but, the addition of a little grass fed butter, would have been awesome.  I would absolutely recommend these muffins.  Whether plain or slathered, they pass my taste test. I’ll be posting the ingredients and other information about Mikey’s Muffins in every post this week.  If there is a particular question you’d like answered, please add it to the Comments.  I will answer all questions. Now, what did I eat today on The 21-Day Sugar Detox? Lunch was lettuce leaves filled with leftover shredded rib roast and AIP guacamole.  I also made a nutritious juice with kale, green apple, carrots, and celery.  Healthy and delicious!

  1. Love your meals….that juice with kale, green apple, carrots, and celery is my go to juice…love the flavor.

    So these muffins are like english muffins? that’s pretty awesome, I miss the taste of muffins since going paleo, I love the idea of added flavorings so a little butter ontop would be delish. I have yet to do the 21 day sugar detox, as I have to cook for 4 kids but some of the meals that I’ve seen look so delicious. I would like to try sometime however I”m not too bad with sugar addiction.

    1. Thank you, Samantha, for the wonderful compliment. My green juice is my go to as well. I drink it almost every day. I’ve entered your name in the drawing for Mikey’s Muffins. You’ve got to try them. It’s nice to have English muffins again!
      I know how difficult it can be to go paleo while feeding a family of non-paleos. I make three different meals every night (LOL!). That’s why I find it easier to cook enough for a few meals, and then freeze portions for later. Otherwise, I think I’d go nuts.
      If you need any more motivation, just let me know. I love helping others go paleo!
