So, I have just finished the 21-day sugar detox, and I am feeling pretty amazing. I honestly thought I was not going to make it through the first week, as it felt like an eternity of going through sugar withdrawals. The second week was much easier and I started to feel like I was back on center, and the cravings eased up considerably. I am amazed by how I feel and didn’t realize what a paralyzing effect sugar can have on the body. What I am ever most stoked about is that icky brain fog feeling has lifted and my mind feels so much clearer…Yay! That is all the reason I need to continue on this journey. The 21-day sugar detox is pretty strict in that you abstain from all sugar sources, including fruit. I am going to introduce fruit back into my diet to see how it goes. I love fruit, especially in the summer, so hopefully it will not cause the brain fog to come back. I would encourage everyone to try this detox, honestly, it is life-changing.
NOW FOR THE SALAD….
This is the first in the summer power salad series. Its pretty simple and when paired with Fuji Apple vinaigrette dressing from Litehouse, it tastes like a little piece of heaven…Who needs cake with a salad like this? Although the dressing has a sweet taste, it is low in sugar (6g), so you don’t have to feel like your falling off the wagon.
IN THE MIX:
Bed of greens: spinach, collard greens, kale
1/2 pair sliced
Nature’s Harvest orange flavored almonds
Fuji Apple vinaigrette dressing
Goat cheese sprinkles
