Day 23
Choice Day 2!
Write about whatever you like!

I did this yesterday instead of the scheduled prompt. Here we go again!

Day 1 of clean eating & no sugar is underway. I was a bad blogger and forgot to take any pictures, but heres my what I ate list:

Breakfast: green tea (no truvia), breakfast scramble: 1 egg, 2 egg whites, red onion, black beans, spinach & cheddar. topped with organic salsa.

Snack: smoothie with coconut milk, banana, coconut, and protein powder.

Lunch: salad with mixed greens, quinoa, zucchini, black beans, avocado & salsa with a hummus/lemon dressing.

Snack: Hummus & baby carrots

Dinner: Nut crusted chicken & baked almond asparagus

Snack: organic gala apple & organic cheddar cheese. green tea (no truvia)

So far I'm feeling great. I've realized I mostly eat clean ~80% of the time, its just the sweets & booze that I can't handle. I hope that this month will help me kick my sugar habit, and use sweets only as an occasional treat. The hypnosis is helping, and I keep doing my CDs to relax and regain focus daily.

Do you eat clean, if so what's your favorite clean eating recipe or snack?
How do you deal with a sweet tooth that won't go away?

I just started clean eating today, too. Attempting to cut the sugar habit. We'll see how this goes! I'm with you - the sugar is what gets me too!

Clean eating isn't something I have tried...I think I'd be bad at it. But the more I read about it the more I want to try. Can't wait to see how it goes for you - good job!

I am about to sstart, also :-) I borrowed the book and now I am waiting for pay day to re stock our shelves with healthier choices. Good luck, keep us posted!

Looks like a great day of eating. Were you satisfied all day? Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the hypnosis. Sounds interesting. I have yet to find the right coping mechanism to deal with my sweet tooth, but I'm not giving up. My favorite clean eating recipe is arugula with roasted corn, cherry tomatoes, black beans and avocado dressed in lemon juice, a drizzle or two of olive oil and salt & pepper.

Good luck. Sugar is my killer too. And with all the the training.... Geez, it total negates the work I do! Keep us posted, I'm excited to hear how it goes!
