In case you haven’t seen me in person/read my other blog posts/been on my Twitter/Instagram – I’m doing a 21 Day Sugar Detox. I’ve always wanted to do a WIAW and thought that some days in my life (long-run days, sugar detox days) might be more interesting to show so this is the first time I remembered (for the most part) to photograph what I ate.
Basically I can’t have gluten or added sugar (natural or artificial) for three weeks. This includes fruits (except for one banana or green apple a day), which I thought would be crazy hard because I eat fruit constantly. Other than day two when I binge ate an apple (think how Mango from SNL would eat an apple), it’s been going well. The only two things I would say were that my long run on Sunday was much more difficult than normal and I also think I had a little harder time recovering from it without carbs.
You’re supposed to keep starchy vegetables to a minimum, as well as grains to a 1/2 cup, but you’re allowed more if you’re active. Since I’m still logging 20+ miles a week, I decided to just take this liberally and eat whatever as long as it wasn’t sugar, gluten or extra fruit (for the most part).
Ignore the crappy iPhone photos and that most were eaten out of Tupperware – I eat a lot of meals at my desk, sorry. Also not pictured is half an apple and two egg-broccoli muffins with some avocado. Forgot I was doing this until they were in my stomach.
Breakfast – Quinoa Pumpkin Microwave Muffin
(click-thru for recipe above!)
Lunch – Salad with chicken
Snack – Un-photographed broccoli-egg muffins with avocado and 1/2 green apple
Dinner – Spaghetti squash with sautéed veggies and chicken sausage
Dessert – Sweet potato with cottage cheese
