Alright, it’s time for another sugar reboot! With summer travels and holidays, I’ve needed a sugar-free challenge to nudge me back in line. Now is the perfect time! I announced on Instagram that my sisters and I will be doing a 7 day sugar-free challenge starting tomorrow! We’ll avoid processed, refined sugary treats and desserts for the next 7 days. We’ll fill our diets with whole foods, unprocessed snacks and healthy desserts! I really hope you’ll join us! To kick this off, here’s a simple meal plan for this coming week!
