Lifestyle: Eating Healthy – Beef Satay and Peanut Sauce

  In kicking off week three of my efforts to cut out carbs and sugar, I am finding more recipes to keep me inspired to stay on track.  Like this easy recipe, which technically is a pretty solid alternative for the entire family (less folks with peanut allergies) and with a bowl of sticky rice, the meal turns pretty satisfying even for the pessimist in your efforts to ditch starchy/sugary.

Food: No Carb, No Sugar Avocado Smoothie

I’ve been on this plan since April 2nd and I have to say, I am proud of myself for not falling off the wagon.

I can actually look at rice, or potatoes just to name a few, or sit through a meal with friends eating starchy foods and be okay.  So I guess my body has adjusted – hopefully well into the rest of the year.

Lifestyle: No Carb, No Sugar Plan

April fools day, I began a lifestyle change – in terms of eating better. Meaning, I don’t want to diet, or order a meal plan to follow. I simply decided to cut out carbs and sugar as much as possible from my daily meals. I have to tell you, it is day 9 and I feel pretty determined to go on, even when I am craving sugar like nobody’s business.  I also want to report that I’ve been a little grouchy, call it having withdrawals, but I know in the long run this is going to help me. At least I hope in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Last night I was craving a fat dessert, and opted to drink two bottles of water instead. Which helped. But today, I decided to make a list of desserts that are good to keep in mind  – for the just in case.
