Mostly we ate meals based on meat and vegetables.
|Chilli with extra vegetables added|
|Meatballs with sweet potato and kale|
|Beef stew and dumplings|
For lunch we generally had a salad with meat and cheese.
We always ate plenty so we wouldn't get hungry and be tempted to eat something sugary. And it worked, we both enjoyed the food we ate and didn't particularly miss foods we'd cut out.
After the month I definitely feel like I have more energy and I want to keep eating a fairly low sugar diet. It's nice to feel like you're giving your body good foods. It's really stisfying.
I did miss baking, it's something I get pleasure from, making something sweet that everyone enjoys. I'll probably go back to making the occasional treat but do it less often than I used to and try to find some lower sugar treats for us.
But overall it was a good experience, I'm glad we did it. :)
