I feel like I always say this on the last day of the month.
But… is it really May 31st?! Seriously?
This month was a blur. I don’t even remember anything that happened.
Okay, that’s a lie.
But this month did go by extremely too quickly. sigh.
At least tomorrow is June 1st! I always correlate June 1st as the beginning of summer, even though that’s not technically the case.
I technically already eat sugar-free except for the occasional honey, agave nectar and the sugar that is found in the bread we buy. Oh and the protein powder I use.
So my goals for the 10 day Sugar Free Challenge are:
- hold off on the protein powder and instead eat beans, legumes, fish and eggs for protein. I am going to still probably eat protein powder, just because I like it and it IS an important source of protein for me! Plus, I need it for my smoothies!
- hold off on the bread (even though I make homemade bread, we also buy from the store and it has added sugar) and instead eat oatmeal and other whole grains. But mostly oatmeal
- continue to check labels for foods with added sugars. you’d be surprised at the sugar that hides in the food we eat!
I know going sugar-free is not a good idea for people who are trying and need to gain weight or those who don’t want to deprive themselves, but it’s never a bad idea to check the amount of sugar you are eating and read those nutrition labels!
I hope to post a lot of my daily eats the next 10 days so everyone can see how tasty eating sugar-free can be!
