day two :: food :: sugarfree - part two
It's serious business, this sugar free caper. So far so good. Yesterday, after breakfast, we headed out in search of yummy, healthy food to replace the sweet. See, the key, we've found is if we occupy ourselves with food that we feel good about eating, we don't miss the food we feel bad about eating quite so much. It's all about nurture, rather than deprivation. So we took our time, went slightly over budget and shopped organic and local where possible. The big bag of rocket at the front was ripped out of the ground with our own hands, at the local organic co-op. There are supplies there to last us over a week. Some will keep us going for while. Some are for Huz's birthday cake on Tuesday... All make us feel great. The owlets loved seeing it all out like this and although they aren't completely joining us in our no-sugar challenge, they get it and are learning about food and where it comes from. Even just the extra time spent choosing lovely, local, organic food has sparked an interest. For me, a shift to higher protein, lower carbs, makes my body sing. Now if I can just get wee bit more sleep, I'll be feeling brilliant!
Hope your weekend was great and you are feeling well and ready for a new week too! xx
