Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

I've been on the 21-Day Sugar Detox.

As I approach my second week, I love how my tastebuds have adapted. Foods that I used to consider tart are now surprisingly sweet. Like grapefruit. It is as sweet to me as a Navel orange would be!

My experience on the The 21-Day Sugar Detox so far has been fantastic. I love that this plan is flexible and accomodates athletes, pregnant and nursing moms, autoimmune protocol, etc. Taking into account that I already eat paleo I was set up for level 3 automatically. I do have some modifications in place for following AIP and considering that I still nurse Bugsy {often} – so I am allowing myself some good carbs {like sweet potato} when I feel the need.

There are three fruits I am allowed on this level; grapefruit, green tip bananas {which is how I prefer bananas anyway!}, and green/tart apples. So I’ve gotten creative with different ways to zhush up these fruits.

Grapefruit Avocado Salad
This is one of my favorite salads to enjoy. I just threw it together one morning while bacon was cooking. Remarkable things happen when the smell of bacon is in the air. Ha!
