Well today is day 7 of my sugar detox. I made it to 7, just 14 more to go. Things I notice. Im a little sluggish. I am a little more hungry then usual. (they say to just drink water first, see if your just in need of hydration instead of food), and my taste buds are like brand new taste buds. I called them virgin taste buds, but that seems to get an odd reaction. But Joe and I went to dinner and I said to him, ‘you HAVE to taste these carrots!, they have so much flavor and are so sweet!” . Yeah, he tasted them and said- ‘they are carrots’. Same thing with an avocado last night. I thought it was a different variety then normal because it had a sweet flavor to it. So that is a bonus.
So if anything from this sugar detox, my cravings are gone. (But I know those little bastard cravings will come back!), things taste much better overall. No need for salt whatsoever. And I also am much more aware of how much sugar you could potentially eat if you dont pay attention to it. Just a tablespoon of ketchup is 20 grams of sugar! What I am doing, I need to eat less then 10 grams A DAY! So my awareness of how much sugar is in foods and what foods to eat that don’t have a lot of sugar has grown tons. After this is over I think I will go back to low fruit and sugar only on special occasions.
So to kick off my 7th day sugar detox, I decided to go a little wild! I used a ripe banana instead of the green tipped one’s we are allowed on the SD. Oh what has life become when a ripe banana feels like a cheat day! So here is a little sweet and savory breakfast meal. I got this off checking out instagram again.
Ingredients: (I made this for 2 so I up’d the ingredients a little)
- 1 banana
- 4 eggs
- some bacon (I used bacon pieces that I got from TJ’s. They are uncured and nitrate free so no sugar, but this would have been WAY better with just regular yummy crispy bacon)
- Dash of coconut milk (optional)
Start off with throwing your bacon in the pan and cook until crispy. Add the slices of banana until they start to get a little brown. Take the eggs and add a dash of cinnamon and coconut milk and whisk them together. Add this to your bacon/banana mixture and cook until done. The taste is suprising. The mix of sweet with the bacon is odd, but really good at the same time.
