Hello wonderful humans. This is the start of my second week without sugar. I am still in the easing off phase, so I am allowed my little treats. I have not included on here my daily coke zero, but that generally only happens on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
I have decided to incorporate a few different cooks in my weekly meal plan, mainly because I really struggle to eat the same thing day in and day out. So I have included some recipes from Damon and Zoe Gameau’s book That Sugar Guide, a couple of recipes from Hemsley and Hemsley and finally, a variety of recipes from Sarah Wilson’s books; Simplicious, I Quit Sugar For Life and I Quit Sugar.
I must remind you that this is a guide. I am sharing what I did to free myself of sugar but it isn’t for everyone. I also have to make a little note of the weekend lunches. Before any of you contact PETA, no, Russel is not my dog. Russel is a concept I have stolen from my mother in law and it basically means anything you can Russel together. It saves me having to try to stick to set meals on weekends and I am not a fan of wasting food. This helps both aspects of this. It also leads itself to conversations like “Hey babe, how long has this been in the fridge?” so it helps to keep my fridge clean as well. My husband and I try to have one date night a week and we always have Sunday dinner with my lovely mummy, so that was a bit of an easy way to make sure I am not having to bulk cook. Friday night is also the only night we will tend to have leftovers. This is because I am at university until 7pm and my darling husband is wonderful at making spagbol, but has admitted that he isn’t really sure where to start with this whole no sugar no meat stuff. For this reason I decided that it was safer to do a vegetarian lasagna rather than braving a risky meal (sorry).
Well I am off to start my week. Wish me luck!
