Congrats on making it this far into the sugar detox! I know you are probably cursing my name for convincing you to give this a try, but I promise it gets better. Week one is just kind of the worst. Not only are you exhausted because your body isn't getting these artificial energy boosts from sugar and caffeine, you're probably struggling to figure out how to get enough calories in. Not eating enough can make anyone hangry. This week focus on eating enough each day and plan out a few snacks to take with you during the day so you're not starving. Also make sure your portion sizes are big enough.
Even if your first week wasn't 100% clean, take a look at the all positive changes and choices you have made over the past few days. You have likely already made some significant improvements in your diet. This is an amazing accomplishment and something to be proud of! To help keep you on track, here are some dinner/lunch, breakfast and snack options as well as a few recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. Keep it up!
Lime Tilapia with Mexican Salad over Wild Rice (instead of in tacos)
Sweet and Sour Mango Chicken Salad (with adapted sugar-free dressing)
*Hopefully I'll have my own recipe up for it soon. If you don't have almond flour, ground almonds from the baking section work just as well.
Apple Slices with Cinnamon and Almond Butter
Plain Yogurt with Fruit, Oats and Nuts
