Day Five of The 21-Day Sugar Detox

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.

Day Four of The 21-Day Sugar Detox

Day 4 dinner on The 21-Day Sugar Detox- Cilantro Lime Chicken & Big salad

Today, I’m reminded why I love this detox so much.  I feel phenomenal!  Although I’ve been following a pretty strict paleo diet, introducing foods into my diet really takes a toll on my body.  When you have an autoimmune disease, any food can trigger your symptoms.  Problem is, you don’t know what food is going to be the culprit until you eat it.  It’s good to clean out your body once in awhile.

The first time I did The 21-Day Sugar Detoxthe 21-day sugar detox Day Four of The 21-Day Sugar Detox ir t boanmo05 20 l as2 o 1 a 1936608111 was in January of this year.  I think every three months is a good enough amount of time between detox treatments.  If I were perfectly healthy, I wouldn’t have to do it as often.  But, with lupus, I have to be diligent with my diet.  I would suggest the same for anyone suffering from an autoimmune disease.

For dinner, I baked my Cilantro Lime Chicken (recipe below).  I ate my chicken with a BIG salad of mixed greens, avocado, and cucumber, with a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  Both I and my dog, Giddy, enjoyed the chicken.  She loves Mama’s chicken!

Who is Paleo Cajun Lady?

Paleo Cajun Lady- Tara “Mo” Perillo

Okay, I really hate talking about myself; but, I thought it was necessary to create a video to introduce myself to you all.  I wanted to tell you my story about how I came to find the paleo diet.  I know I’ve written about how I was diagnosed with lupus and sought out natural ways to alleviate my symptoms; but, I feel it’s different, when you see someone talking about it.  It lets you see the personality behind the person.  I hope you like the video.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to comment below or email me with any questions you have.  I don’t mind talking about my paleo journey.  Any of my experiences are available to you.  All you have to do is ask. I’m going to try to do at least one video segment a week.  I’ll be doing cooking segments, how-to videos, product and book reviews, and more.
