Recipes in my Paleo Cajun Lady Cookbook- Coming Soon!

I was sitting here, editing photos for my first cookbook, when I realized I hadn’t posted results from The 21-Day Sugar Detoxdetox Paleo Life After The 21-Day Sugar Detox ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a 1936608111.  Apparently, the days fly by when working on a project, like this cookbook.

I only lost one pound during this detox; but, I wasn’t trying to lose any weight.  In fact, I upped my fat intake this time, to ensure I wouldn’t lose.  As you can see, it’s hard not to lose some weight doing The 21-Day Sugar Detoxdetox Paleo Life After The 21-Day Sugar Detox ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a 1936608111.  You really have to try not to.

Since ending the detox, I’ve enjoyed a couple of cheat meals.  For me, cheat meals mean I go gluten free, instead of strict paleo.  Of course, I don’t eat any of the foods to which I’m allergic or can’t tolerate.

On Memorial Day, my husband and I ate at On the Border Mexican restaurant.  They actually have a pretty awesome allergen free menu.  If you look it up online, you can find dishes that are dairy free, corn free, tree nut free, and gluten/wheat free.  There was even a gluten free dessert, Flan, that was pretty tasty.  I ordered the Grilled Chicken and vegetables with Cilantro Lime rice.  The chicken was really good.  I ate a few bites of rice, without the corn  ( I’m not sure about their GMO policies).  I also did not eat the grilled peppers (nightshades).  It was really nice to be able to eat at a restaurant.

That night, I savored my gluten free Omission beer.  Ooh, did that taste great!  I don’t drink very often; but, when I do, I truly appreciate it.

And, I ate a hunk of my Coconut Pecan Bread Pudding.  I guess you could say, I really relished my first day off the detox diet.

The ever evolving paleo diet

Lately, I’ve noticed so many of the people I learned from, when I first went paleo, eating foods that are not traditionally paleo.  At first, I was a little taken aback by this.  However, the more I thought about it, the more I questioned my own rigidity on the paleo diet.  Was it me that was striving too much for perfection?  Well, since I do tend to be a perfectionist, I came to the conclusion that I was being too rigid.  The whole point of eating the paleo way is to bring us closer to foods in their natural state, to eat whole foods.  As the paleo diet evolves, we begin to add more foods to our diet.  Some have added rice or potatoes to their diets for extra carbs.  Others have added baking soda or powder to their baked goods.  Those foods are typically considered paleo friendly.  I will continue to evolve as well.  If I choose to have a little jasmine rice with my meal, I will.  Any diet that becomes too restrictive is not sustainable.  I will not judge you if you aren’t 100% paleo; because, neither am I.

Love life!

Day 21 of The 21-Day Sugar Detox!

Happy Memorial Day! sugar detox Day 21 of The 21-Day Sugar Detox! Amflag1
Happy Memorial Day!

I’m done!  Well, I made it through.  Day 21 is at an end.  Tomorrow, I can resume my regular diet.  And, believe me, I will.

I already have a few meals planned.  First, I’m going to have Mexican food tomorrow, for lunch.  Of course, I will also be enjoying my Omission gluten free beer.  I’m also going to defrost a piece of my Coconut Pecan Bread Pudding.  Because I was already on the detox when I made it, I chose to freeze a few servings for after the sugar detox.  I’m very glad I did that.

Day Twenty of The 21-Day Sugar Detox

Love watermelon in the summer!

Woo-hoo! One more day left of The 21-Day Sugar Detox!  I tell ya, doing this detox, has really made me appreciate the little things.  I never knew how much I enjoyed different varieties of fruit.  I can’t wait to make my juices and smoothies with watermelon, kiwi, strawberries, and blueberries.  It’s not that I miss the sugar taste.  I miss the variety!

Many people feel as though the paleo diet doesn’t offer much variety.  I have not found that to be true.  I mean, we have a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, fats, and meats.  The problem, for me, came in when I had to cut out nightshades.  But, if you can handle eating nightshades, there are so many foods to choose from.

Another complaint I hear is there is too much preparation and cooking involved.  While I do agree, you can always do most of your preparations one or two days a week.  I always try to cook extra, so I can have some for lunch the next day.  You can also pack lunches for a week.  Or, freeze a week’s worth of dinners, after one day of cooking.  If you really want to do it, you’ll find a way.  There are also quite a few companies making quick, paleo approved snacks and meals.  While I don’t believe you should base your entire diet on these products, they’re fine for once in a while.  I know there are also meal delivery businesses out there which offer paleo meals.  If it’s difficult for you to prepare meals, you may want to look into that.

Truth is, going paleo is not easy.  But, I’ve found it does get easier as you progress.  Plus, the benefits far outweigh the hardships.  It’s been well worth it for me!

What did I eat on day 20 of The 21-Day Sugar Detox?

For dinner, I grilled a couple of grass fed beef patties, sauteed red onion and mushrooms, and put them all on a butter lettuce bun, with a couple of squeezes of spicy brown mustard. Yum!

Well, tomorrow is my last day of The 21-Day Sugar Detox.  I think I’ll be eating one meal outside of the house.  Usually, we go to lunch after church.  I guess I’ll have to see what I’m in the mood for at dinner.  Most of the time, I plan my meals; but, for tomorrow, I decided to wing it.  We’ll see what happens!

Goodnight, for now!
