So I'm on day 11 of no sugar and day 9 of no dairy. And I'm alive...much to my disbelief! It's a miracle. And things really are going better health wise. yay! I don't feel deprived at all at least as far as sugar, because I LOVE HONEY, and you don't need a whole lot to make things amazing. I do miss cottage cheese, laughing cow cheese and ice cream...oh and almond milk on my oatmeal (I've gotta find some unsweetened almond milk!) I also started no grains/wheats this week...so I don't even get oatmeal, so no worries there. But my 3 favorite snacks.....apples and peanut butter with a little honey. I have it twice a day. And I eat an apple before every meal...yup 5 apples a day. We buy the little organic ones. They were just on sale for .99/lb so we stocked up. My kids go through em like crazy too.And we all love Sam's clubs frozen berries, mostly thawed, with a little honey drizzled over it. Seriously we all have it...every day.
And this one is just me, but I'm loving Celestial seeasonings candy cane lane. And although it warms me up, puts water in me and I love the taste (and I hate teas) it is decaffeinated, so it's bad for me, but for now, I'm going to drink through the supply that I have in my pantry.
So, as of week one and a half, diet is great. I'm only down 4 or 5 lbs, but I feel like I have eatten a lot. And the fact that I can have peanut butter....heck yes! It's all natural organic (PEANUTS ONLY) so it's not the delicious skippy that I would love to eat, but it's still soo good with honey and apples! We'll see how long I can stick this one out. I'm thinkin I've had a lactose intollerance all these years, so I'll probably be no, or low dairy forever. And it's amazing how different I feel already with no sugar, hopefully after a couple of months I'll feel so great that i'll wanna stay off forever. The no wheat/grains, uh, that's only 5 more weeks so I can say I did Jase's anti inflamatory diet. I'll be bringing breads and oatmeal back in for sure. I'm not a huge bread person, but we do like sandwiches, and there's no way around that one.
