I Quit Sugar Week Three!
I can’t believe it’s been three weeks since I quit sugar. I honestly can say this week has been so easy! I haven’t had any breakdowns or cravings.
I have implemented my new habits, started trying new recipes from the book, and even going out to restaurants. I was really nervous about going out to eat the first few weeks, but it’s actually not that bad. I just stick to veggies and sea food and my glass (or two) of red wine and I am a happy girl. I have even sat at a table with people eating dessert and it really didn’t bother me! I’m pretty proud of myself.
Her is a cracker recipe from Sarah Wilson’s book. These have been a nice snack to keep in my purse or take on hikes with me. I have been eating it with a small piece of organic pasture fed raw cheese, avocado, or some mustard. Finding things to replace old habits is key when cutting out the sugar.
½ cup chia seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup almond meal
2 cloves of garlic crushed
2 teaspoons of fresh chopped sage
1 teaspoon dulse flakes
¼ tsp sea salt
1 cup water
Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine seeds and almond meal together. In another bowl all the remaining ingredients. Then combine the seed mixture to the liquid mixture and stir until thick and combined. Spread the mixture on a pan with parchment paper on it. Spread and press down until its 1/4inch thick. Bake for 30 mins. Remove and cut into crackers, flip over, and bake for another 25 mins. Allow to cool on the pan. Keep in a sealed container and good for 2 weeks!
I am continuing to enjoy trying new recipes, so I will share the ones I like here! Any questions you might have please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
