Food Matrix

« | »
Congratulations, everyone, on your first week of Kicking the Sugar!  In looking over your food journals, you are all doing a great job with your efforts.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  You may fall off the wagon, but you're only ever a meal away from getting back on.  Stay the course!  You have 3 more weeks to get better!

Some are struggling a little bit with what they should eat, making sure to get protein with every meal and snack, and not eating too much carbohydrate, even if it isn't refined sugar.  Robb Wolf uses a Food Matrix to help give his clients some ideas on what to eat, so I put one together in hopes that it might help you all pick good foods.

  1. Yey to one week of being “Crack Free”! Congrats to all! So one of my things i have been doing this week is making my own nut butter. YUMMY! Since cashew butter can be super expensive, and if you aren’t careful with the labels, have sugar in it…bust out your food processor! Get a large can of cashews from sams or a couple small ones when they are on sale at the regular grocery…and process away! Eat it right when you are finished and its warm! Very tasty on a apple! Cures my sweet tooth every time…
