Day Seven of The 21-Day Sugar Detox

Wow, what a busy weekend I had.  Yesterday was my stepson Jon’s college graduation.  Today, of course, was Mother’s Day.  Trying to make sure all the Mothers in my life were properly appreciated was a full time job.  Fortunately, I was able to relax for part of the day.

I opted out of going out to brunch today.  After yesterday, I really just wanted to eat at home.  Today, I was experiencing a little flare up of one of my rashes and pain in my hip joint.  I don’t think it was something I ate yesterday.  I just think it was a combination of the stress of the day, and sitting too much.  I didn’t want to aggravate the flare.

What did I eat today on The 21-Day Sugar Detox?

Day 7 Lunch Cilantro Eggs, Bacon, and Guacamole

My lunch was scrambled eggs with cilantro, cumin, and garlic powder.  I tossed some bacon slices and a little guacamole on top. Yum!

Day 7 Dinner Rib Roast and Mashed Cauliflower with Mushroom Gravy

At dinner, I reheated a portion of the rib roast I cooked last week (It was frozen).  I made some mashed cauliflower and a mushroom gravy.  Usually, I’ll use arrowroot powder to thicken my gravy; but, that’s not allowed on The 21-Day Sugar Detox.  Instead, I used a tablespoon of chia seeds.  It was a little more gelled than usual, but not bad.  It was actually a pretty awesome dinner.

Tomorrow’s post, I will announce a giveaway on the blog!  I’ll also be writing about supplements I take while doing The 21-Day Sugar Detox.  So, if you’re curious about good supplements, be sure to check it out.
