I was very lucky enough to attend an amazing dinner with one of my favorite holistic nutritionist and nutritionist consultants. She has inspired me for the last three years to clean up my diet and make some changes that have really affected the way I look at food for fuel and nurishment. I've always been an advocate of The Zone but am slowly integrating some amazing paloelithic ways of eating. No, I am not eating weird meats and fully off of carbs, but I have eliminated legumes and some grains. I'll be the first to admit I'm a sucker for a good piece of Irish Soda bread with Kerry Gold Butter. There are things I just won't cut out of my diet and will add an extra mile for.
Because I've been inspired by these two philosophies I've decided to take the challenge of cleaning up the sugar that I consume with the 21 Day Sugar Detox by Diane Sanfilippo. The book is just as amazing as Practical Paleo her first book and filled with so many yummy, simple recipes. As a mom of two that is important. Although this time around I plan to premake and prep a lot of weekly meals so I am encouraged and motivated to stick to the 21 days. I mean come on, it's only 21 days. I train for marathons that take months, this I can handle and I'm hoping to take some of my clients along for the ride.
Not being much of a blogger I figured this was a great opportunity. I will share recipes, workouts and how things are going along the way. This detox will also lead into the start of training season for me so it'll be a great start to what I hope is a strong season.
Looking forward to sharing photos, recipes, ideas and more!
