Well, today is day five of The 21-Day Sugar Detox. I’ve been too busy today to even have time to figure out how I feel. I must be feeling pretty good because I don’t have any real complaints. I’m amazed at how easy this time around is for me.
Tomorrow may be a different story. I will be out of town all day, attending my stepson’s college graduation. We’ll be on the road for part of the day. Then, during my usual lunchtime, we’ll be experiencing the graduation. Dinner is later in the afternoon, in a restaurant.
Luckily, I’m going in, prepared. I will have a small breakfast before we hit the road. I’m also packing snacks for the road. I made some paleo, detox-approved trail mix and a couple of turkey wraps with avocado. And, I reviewed the menu of the restaurant online. I already know what to order. Whew!
Since I won’t have any recipes for you after being out all day, I’ll be posting the recipe for my Smoky Spicy Cauliflower Bites in tomorrow night’s post.
What did I eat today on The 21-Day Sugar Detox?
My lunch was really simple. I had a couple of chicken legs, leftover from last night’s dinner with a big glass of green juice. I made my juice with 3 handfuls of kale, 1 cucumber, 2 carrots, and 1 green apple.
Dinner was awesome! I made a big Guacamole Bacon Double Burger and Smoky Spicy Cauliflower Bites. I used a little extra guacamole for dipping my cauliflower….so good. Here’s my recipe for a super, simple AIP guacamole:
AIP Paleo Guacamole
2 Ripe Avocados
1/2 Red or White Onion
Juice of 1 Lime
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Add all ingredients to food processor. Pulse until it reaches your preferred consistency. You can add in more olive oil, if you need to. I like mine creamy; so, I usually add more until it gets the way I like it. That’s it! So easy!
So, I’ll be back tomorrow night with day 6 update. Hopefully, things go as smoothly as I need them to. I’ll either be writing about how hard it was, or how easy it was to eat away from home all day. Either way, I’ll let you know.
