21-Day Sugar Detox

I am about to begin my journey to get sugar out of my diet!! along with any remaining bit of soy!  Those soy lecithin's that are hidden in everything.  It has been amazing how it is absolutely everything! So, I purchased the The 21-day Sugar Detox and will begin March 4th along with others on Facebook that will join me.  I am going to focus on clean paleo eating and will post day gains and side steps that may happen.  I will read more about pale and ways to become a better athlete writing every last word I possibly can here.  So, until then!

An Unexpected Day Off

This is my new breakfast and loving it - Of course, no breakfast is complete without Almond Butter!  This "pancake" is made only with pumpkin and egg whites.  I also cook up 1 egg and an extra egg white on the side, and cannot forget coffee with coconut oil.
This is Stryker's disappointment when he realized this breakfast was not his!  Penny and him decided to keep us up all night, since they were not feeling well!  Therefore, unexpected day off - I got no sleep, at all and got up at 3:30, yes am, so D could at least get sleep before work.  After he left for work the pups and I head for the couch to get the sleep we were all lacking!
They like to hog the couch!

The rest of my day was filled with cleaning after the pups frequent messes all over the carpet, laundry, cooking and grocery shopping.  I am still paleo, at least 95%.  I absolutely love listing to Diane and Liz's podcast over at Balanced Bites.  I have learned quite a lot!  I also picked up Liz Wolfe's from Cave Girl Eats new book - Skintervention Guide.  There is so much information in here, but it all makes perfect sense!!  Where was this book years ago?!

As far as the rest of my paleo meals go - lunch was salmon with a mix of vegetables - brussel sprouts, squash, bok chou, carrots, broccoli and topped with guacamole.  Super tasty and need to start taking pictures of these!  Dinner was pancakes - D's choice, his were gluten free and mine was the same as breakfast but I added blueberries and bacon.

Dessert I am trying to break myself of, well at least a little were dark chocolate covered almonds with sea salt and turbinado sugar - salty and sweet!

It's a work in progress!
