Well it’s been awhile since I posted my wrap up of Week 3 of the I Quit Sugar program so I thought I should give you an update.
Week 3 is supposed to be the week when you cut out sugar altogether however after trying to do Week 3 for about 3 weeks I decided that I wanted to just continue watching how much sugar I eat but allow it in small amounts every now and then.
To revisit my goals from the end of week 2…
- Cut down on latte’s and just drink coffee with a little bit of milk (to cut More >
I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really bitter and just gross.
So I was rather intrigued when Erin from Zen Green Tea contacted me about their Matcha tea. Match tea is a rare green tea powder which apparently dissolves to form the smoothest green tea. Erin and co from Zen Green Tea, like More >
I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack.
You can buy the rice paper sheets from most supermarkets and then you just need to decide what you want to fill them with.

I am going to take a moment here to let you all know that it is Celiac Awareness Month in Canada and the US (possibility other countries as well…).
I personally believe that we need to raise a lot more awareness about celiac disease and the symptoms to look out for. Whilst there is a lot more awareness than there was when I was diagnosed in 2009 there is still a long way to go.
For me, I suffered for at least two years before being diagnosed. All the doctors wanted to do was offer me a quick fix; antibiotics for tonsillitis (which More >
I am going to leave you waiting a little longer before I let you know how I have gone since the end of week 2 with my I Quit Sugar journey . In the meantime I am going to tell you about my favourite I Quit Sugar snacks to date.
Firstly I have been purchasing sliced roasted chicken from the deli and eating it on rice cakes with avocado, sliced tomato and salt and pepper. I absolutely love the flavour of this and it is a great healthy, filling snack.
Secondly I got the idea for this one from Amanda who blogs over at More >
Here is my wrap up of week 2 of quitting sugar (this was obviously written a few weeks ago now!):
So week 2 was always going to be a challenging one, but I have to say I went into it with a pretty positive mindset. So why was week 2 going to be challenging? Well in the scheme of I Quit Sugar it’s the week you start adding more (good) fat to your diet so that definitely wasn’t the hard part. The hard part was that my week 2 happened to fall over Easter.
The good thing was that I am away More >
