We’ve been at this sugar-free challenge now for a full week so that means we’ve been busy eating healthy delicious foods! If you could use some help, look no further! We’ve got 21 sugar-free tasty dishes to share with you today!
Although you may have felt headaches, fatigue or just plain lousy (sugar cravings can get ugly), we made it through week 1. Week 1, although difficult, is armed with the excitement of this project and that makes things a little more interesting. Week 2 can sometimes be the most challenging part of any detox. The key to week 2 is to stay interested. The newness of a sugar-free challenge is wearing off and you may begin to feel a little bored/tired of the “I can’t eat that” routine. Remember that you can eat anything you want. You are choosing to fuel your body right now with the foods it needs and sugar just isn’t one of them. You are doing great and if you’ve had doubts or cravings, the best is yet to come!
Now is the time to find new and delicious dishes to keep you focused and excited about what we are doing. We’re making it easy by bringing low to no sugar recipes, (depending on your individual goals and challenge) right here. We’ve compiled a few amazing recipes from the web as well as some blog favorites! These delicious recipes are sure to spark that interest/motivation that you need to stay on track. We have come so far and now is the time to keep boredom down and motivation high!
