5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR, Day 1 went incredibly well, without noticeable sugar cravings, and delicious sugar-free meals and snacks. Here’s a short recap of yesterday’s menu:
*I do intermittent fasting, so I don’t eat anything before 12:00 at noon. That is why you won’t find any “BREAKFAST” section below.
- Beans soup
- Yellow string beans
- Broccoli sautéed in coconut oil with garlic
- 2 fried eggs
- 1 apple
- 1 banana
I take cod liver oil supplements once a day (one of the reasons why I don’t call myself a vegetarian, even though I don’t eat meat – except fish, from time to time)
It wasn’t as difficult as I expected to stay away from sugar yesterday. Maybe it was also because I had a lot of it during the weekend, so my body had enough sugar in store, but I am really glad that I’m back on the right track.
I have also discovered that processed sugar is everywhere, not only in obvious products such as cakes and other sweets, but also in pretzels, bread and canned corn (😑). But I’m gonna do my best to avoid all these products, and I am starting to discover that there are so many healthy and delicious options out there! You’ll find out what I’m talking about later today on my Instagram stories.
In the spirit of healthy eating, I would like to share with you my super simple(st) broccoli recipe:
- Add coconut oil (or any vegetable oil of your choice, I think coconut oil is the healthiest) to a pan and let it heat up
- Add frozen broccoli (I recommend frozen broccoli because it lasts a long time in the freezer and it’s fast and easy to operate with) and cover the pan with a lid until broccoli starts to soften
- Add salt and pepper
- Add diced or minced garlic and let everything cook until the broccoli has the desired texture.
That’s it! Let me know if you like it – I am a super fan of broccoli, so I have no problem eating it on a regular basis, but some of you may have some preconceptions about it – just give it a try!
I’ll keep you updated, see you on Instagram!
