Day 1! YAY!

I indulged quite a bit the weekend before I started (pizza, ice cream, ugh), and to be honest, I felt like crap on Sunday night.  The good part is, that it made me crazy happy to be starting my week healthfully!  Yay!

1/4 cup whole oats (no sweetener) cooked, topped with 1 banana (sliced).  Cup of Tulsi red mango tea.

1/2 a pineapple

Cup of Yerba Mate Tea

Quinoa with romaine lettuce, radishes, garbanzo beans (no salt added), and a sprinkling of Braggs liquid amino acids (pictured).  I know this sounds kind of like a strange combination, but it was actually pretty darn yummy!

Apple with natural peanut butter (no added sugar or salt)

1/2 a baked potato with leftover mashed cauliflower, 1 tbsp of marinara sauce, and zucchini sauteed with onions & seasonings (no salt) - and a homemade iced Tulsi Chamomile tea (unsweetened).

30-minutes "The Firm" arms workout video

2-hour derby practice (I couldn't do a lot of the drills since I'm not supposed to fall for at least a week, so I did a lot of endurance, practiced my form, then did core-strengthening work in the fitness area, and some additional weight lifting)


  1. So I have a question about the no-sugar thing. I thought pineapples and apples had a TON of natural sugar in them! Is there a list somewhere of the foods (especially fruit) that typically do not contain sugar? - Stacey

  2. All fruits have sugar in them - but it's natural sugar (fructose). If you're doing a no-sugar cleanse, it's best to avoid fruits during that time for your body to re-boot. Another natural form of sugar is glucose, which is the sugar from carbohydrates (bread, pasta, etc). When you're doing a no-sugar cleanse, you should try to avoid all fructose, glucose and sucrose (white sugar) - but re-introducing fructose & glucose (the good sugars) to your body slowly afterward.

    I'm just trying to avoid sucrose (anything that's used to sweeten things, ie. sugar, cane sugar, honey, syrups, sweet dressings, etc), and any processed sugars (high-fructose corn syrup).

    I hope that helps! :)
