Happy What I Ate Wednesday friends!
It is actually Tuesday night when I am typing this, and we are supposed to get some winter weather tonight. I’m praying for snow!! If it is going to be cold outside, I want snow.
**Update… no snow. Bummer.
I was so excited to sign up for New Year, New Rules. For one, it wasn’t going to change my diet too much.. just take processed sugar out. Secondly, I was so excited to learn from Megan and Katie.
Honestly, I didn’t really expect to see much of a change in my body. Boy was I wrong!!
My cravings have diminished! I used to get shaky between meals and start craving breads or something starchy for a snack. I don’t really have a “sweet” tooth. I never crave candy, but breads are a whole different story!
I’m not saying that I never get hungry. I do. I just don’t turn into a ravenous beast between meals like I used to. I think this is because I’ve been subbing out sugary things for more healthy proteins and healthy fats.
Creamy Buckwheat Breakfast Bowl with banana, blueberries, and goji berries topped with coconut milk, almond butter, hemp seeds, and walnuts.
Usually I would put some Fig Butter or something sweet to top it, but now I just go with extra coconut milk and fruit. Works the same and keeps my blood sugar in check.
Stir fry! Leek, broccoli, mushroom, green beans, rice, and a huge farm egg stir fried with coconut aminos and sesame oil. Topped with cashews. Perfection.
I never really ate anything sweet at lunch, and my lunch has always held me over pretty well.
An apple on the way home from work. No picture… I was driving!
Eggplant Dal. This may be one of my favorite recipes…ever!
To Be Decided…. Probably a microwave muffin of some sort…. with coconut butter.
I know it will be paired with Duck Dynasty!! I’m addicted to that show.
Have you ever removed processed sugar from your diet? If so, how did you feel?
