This Week’s Menu Plan {Week #3 of no sugar, no coffee, and no gluten}

It’s my third week of not eating sugar, coffee, or gluten and I’m really excited and surprised at how easy it’s becoming to eat this way — even when traveling for a few days like I did last week. And yes, I still feel great. 🙂

Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole

I’ve survived a week without gluten and two full weeks without coffee or sugar! Surprisingly, I actually didn’t miss it all as much as I thought I would. And I’m sleeping better than I have in months — maybe years?

I’m honestly having fun finding new recipes that are gluten-free and sweetened with honey… and I’m also loving the incentive to eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and lean protein. 🙂

I don’t know what I’m going to do longterm, but I’m really happy with the results I’ve seen from this short stint of diet changes.

This Week’s Menu {and yes, I temporarily gave up coffee & sugar–can you believe it?!}

For a long list of reasons, I temporarily gave up coffee and sugar a week ago. Yes {gasp!} can you believe it?!

It’s been eight days, and now that the massive headache is gone, I am feeling so, so good (and sleeping better than I have in years). I’m happy and all, but on the other hand, I was sort of secretly hoping I wouldn’t notice such a marked difference. 🙂

Because of this success, I’m now getting brave and giving up gluten, too, as a 30-Day experiment. It’s amazing how health issues will motivate you to do things you used to think were pretty crazy!

So if you notice a bit outside the norm recipes on my menu, you’ll know why. And if you have any amazing gluten-free, sugar-free (I am eating some honey, but no other forms of sweetener outside of fruit) recipes you think I’d love, please do shoot them my way.

Well, I know I was supposed to tell you about my freezer cooking last week. But I pulled a muscle in my neck/shoulder area on Wednesday and I was down and out for a few days while letting that heal.

I did make the Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and the  And I attempted to make the , but I found that it wasn’t all that easy.
