menu monday: 21 day sugar detox

Hello, March! We’ve had a pretty mild winter rain-wise, but I’m definitely ready of some slightly warmer temperatures and hope we see them this month. We just got back from Phoenix yesterday afternoon so I made use of our leftovers to get through the first few days of the week.

Nothing new from Well Fed 2 this week (mostly because I didn’t have it with me when I menu planned in the hotel room).

21 Day Sugar Detox

I’m excited to start the 21 Day Sugar Detox today! I recently bought the book and read through it while we were in Phoenix. My sister and I are virtually working out together starting today and I thought it would be a good time to clean up the diet a little as well. I’m a Whole30 girl for life but wanted to try something different this time. I’m sure I’ll learn something new and I’d also like to have a selection of ideas for future clients who might be interested in a (real food) detox.

What I like about the 21DSD and why I think it will be a great suggestion for clients is that there are three levels to choose from. I’m doing Level 3 since Level 1 would actually introduce foods I don’t typically eat. But for those who are focusing on real food for the first time, I think Levels 1 and 2 seem much more manageable and less intimidating.

The hardest parts of the detox for me in the next three weeks is going to be no sweet potatoes (I probably need an intervention) and no fruit. L3 allows for one piece of fruit a day but you can only choose from 1 green-tipped banana or a green apple. Neither really interest me so I’ll probably be fruit free. Which is also good because I’ve been eating a lot lately and can definitely tell it’s creeping up my sweet tooth.

Next week: an update on week one of the 21DSD and why soup for breakfast is awesome.

    I have not had sweet potato or fruit in so long I can’t remember when. I am very Carb intolerant and I am restricted to very low carbs. Sorry I can’t go along with the soup for breakfast thing..
