Welcome to Part 2! On my last post I described my suggestions for how to begin reducing sugar. See the full post for details but, to recap: we want to avoid added sources of sugar and ideally try a week without any added sweeteners. Whether or not you have yet tried a sugar detox, this post might be helpful. Whole foods are the best and ideal alternative to added-sugar foods that allow us to intake sugar in a balanced manner.
I’m not talking about your boyfriend or girlfriend. That form of sugar can stay 😉 Bad pun?
I’m such a fan of sweet potato. I used to eat whole sweet potatoes all by myself, multiple times a week, every week. Oh, the good days. Now, I sync food with my cycle phases so I mostly consume sweet potatoes during my luteal phase. The more I cycle-sync, the more I’ve adapted my cravings to phase appropriate foods. So, this shake is a mash-up of WomanCode recommended luteal foods like sweet potato, cauliflower, and peach. More deets about cycle-syncing here, but you don’t need to follow WomanCode to enjoy this smoothie! Read more
This post is coming to you hot! 🔥 So hot that I literally just finished writing this the moment before it went live. Basically, I almost skipped writing an August favorites post until I realized that August has 31 days! Huzzah! That extra day gave me the time I needed to coagulate all of my favorite things from food, entertainment, and more! What have I been so busy with that I couldn’t write my favorites down? I can’t tell you all quite yet! Call me superstitious but I just like to get my ducks in a line before I make any announcements.
Sometimes I feel like my Type A personality gets the most of me. I have a very motivated attitude so rest doesn’t come easy for me and I’m happiest when I can be productive.
