Week 2 has been way better than week 1. The cravings have gotten a little more manageable and I’m feeling great. I don’t think I’ve lost weight (I don’t own a scale) but i feel really good. I feel more agile, lighter…just healthier. It has really been difficult and I did have some white flour this weekend but I’m OK with that. The more I experience my body changing, the more I want to make this “fast” a permanent thing. I don’t want to never eat white sugar and flour again, but I would like to eat them less frequently and eat more holistically.
One way I’ve tried to curb the cravings is by making healthy desserts. Last week I made some peanut butter-banana soft serve (pictured above) by blending a couple frozen bananas with a spoonful of peanut butter. Super easy and super filling and delicious. We’ve also been making some raw balls (pictured below) by blending dates, coconut, peanut butter and coco powder together. My huz is super pro at these and they are so good!
Some of my favorite meals this week has been chili mac which is chili with gluten free macaroni and chard. Really filling and delicious. Another good one Avocado Parsley pesto with gluten free angel hair and sauteed garlic tofu. Really tasty, the avocado cuts the bitterness of the parsley.
Even though I’m constantly dreaming about frenching a cupcake, I really am enjoying this fast thing and am not stopping anytime soon!
