5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR, DAY 3

Who would have thought that it can be so easy to avoid sugar, and that there are so many food options out there? I am really having a lot of fun experimenting with so many delicious, processed sugar free meals and snacks, and I totally recommend you to also try this out, at least for 2-3 days! 😃

If you want more food inspo, make sure to check out what I ate during DAY 1 and DAY 2 of the 5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR CHALLENGE!

Here’s my DAY 3 menu:

LUNCH:

  • Mixed vegetables soup
  • Spinach
  • Polenta
  • Beans

DINNER:

  • Quinoa salad with tuna, cherry tomatoes, corn and onion
  • Mashed potatoes with green olives

SNACK:

  • Mixed nuts
  • 1 banana

 

I almost never eat white rice, not even brown rice, because I have replaced it with my delicious quinoa!

HOW TO COOK QUINOA

  • rinse it well before cooking, because quinoa has a natural coating of saponins which may taste bitter if not rinsed off
  • add the desired amount you want to cook to a pan (❗quinoa will expand in size when cooked, so make sure you don’t add too much❗)
  • add double the amount of water
  • salt and pepper
  • bring it to a boil (takes around 10-15 minutes, you’ll notice that it has expanded)
  • let simmer until all the water is absorbed
  • fluff with a fork and enjoy!

It is super easy to make, healthy and tasty – I really love it! And you can have it however you like, either in salads or as a side dish.

If you try this recipe or the chocolate oatmeal recipe that I have shown you in DAY 2, make sure to tag me or send me your pics! I’d really love to know what you think, if you liked it or not. 😃

Also, make sure to stay tuned on my Instagram stories, where I will be posting live meal updates! See you there!

XO, A
