I want this.
I feel better in so many ways, even though I am sleep-deprived, now that I am 100% off sugar and grains. I really didn't think my occasional sandwich or few crackers was affecting me much, but maybe I was wrong.
Regardless, now I want it (not the grains, but the health) and that desire is driving my actions. I made a plan for this week. Last week, it was harder because sometimes I just didn't have any protein prepared when I was hungry so I grabbed nuts and dairy too often. I also ate fewer veggies than I think I should have because I was pressed for time. So my new schedule is to do some preparations every Sunday.
Today I hard boiled a bunch of free range eggs to have on hand during the week. I got some chicken thighs out of the freezer to thaw so tomorrow I can roast them to keep on hand as snacks. I will roast some vegetables along with the chicken to keep in the fridge for easy lunches. I took two large free range beef bones out of the freezer too; I will be making a rich stock with them tomorrow. I washed and chopped veggies for salads and cooking: peppers, onions, spinach, cucumbers, lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower. I peeled and froze some ripe bananas for smoothies and planned some healthy lunches. Between those preparations and my plans to grill meat and veggies on the 4th of July, I am set for the week. Hope you are too!
