“What do I eat if I have to cut out sugar, bread, and grains?” I get this question a LOT. You are not alone. Transitioning from a sugar/carbohydrate-based diet into a less inflammatory, higher-nutrient food plan takes time. It just takes a little planning, but hopefully, this will give you some ideas. The possibilities are endless, especially when you factor in changing up the spices. Spices and a little fat are key to a satisfying meal.
If you don’t have any fat in the meal, you will be hungry in about 2 hours. Also, consider having some protein for breakfast, which will help you think better at work all morning long. I have had clients add protein for breakfast, and suddenly they start losing weight. Be careful with too much fasting at the beginning of a healing program. Protein breaks down into amino acids. You are going to need those amino acids to repair organs.
I am keeping a food log right now as I finally found someone I can be accountable to. I’m turning in my plan to her every morning and attempting to stick to it. So I am turning mine in, too, just like all of you. Here is last week’s food log. If you would like any of these recipes, let me know.
