It’s week 2 of the 21 Day Sugar Detox for me! It’s going well and I feel great. The food prep has worked out really well. And made it SO easy for me to grab food and eat healthy.
I also feel like I’m really starting to enjoy myself in the kitchen again. For the two years cooking really has not been on my priority list. While pregnant I just loathed the thought of putting any effort into food and then of course after I became a mom it just fell by the wayside. It’s like I didn’t even care to eat anymore. It was almost automatic. Like “oh it’s lunchtime better shove some food into my mouth”. Dinner was a dreaded chore where I would just cook the easiest protein/veggie/starch which just resulted in bland, repetitive and boring meals (we ate burgers A LOT).
For the first time in awhile I’m back on Pinterest looking up 21 Day Sugar Detox recipes and in my cook books- looking through meals and choosing them to make. And enjoying it! Many of the meals are turning out great and also giving me some inspiration to start making my own recipes again!
I have mentioned I’ve been having a hard time eating something savory in the morning for breakfast. I made the streusel muffins from Practical Paleo last week for breakfast but thought it was just blah. I used to eat that all the time! So I came up with this chia seed pudding that is 21 day sugar detox approved! This makes such a yummy not-sweet breakfast. You can mix and match toppings as well to make different flavors. This one is very banana bread-esque and has no added sugar. It has the consistency of pudding. Chia seeds are very high in fiber and also supply some healthy omega-3 fatty acids! They keep me very full until lunch time.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 banana (green tipped for 21 DSD)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Toppings of choice (nut butter, pumpkin seeds, fruit if not on 21DSD, coconut flakes, nuts)
- Mash a banana into a medium size pyrex or tupperware container (make sure you mix it after opening the can)
- Put in the coconut milk, chia seeds and cinnamon and vanilla
- Mix well
- Place in fridge for at least 3-4 hours or preferably overnight*
- Cover with toppings and enjoy!
- Make the night before for a quick grab and go breakfast!
P.S. I’m aware these pictures are horrible and I’m no professional food blogger. #sorrynotsorry. This is who I am. I made a yummy recipe a couple of times and I took a picture on my phone before I ate it. I’m not going to pretend otherwise. Real life!!!
