Detox?? Withdrawal??

I don't know what you want to call this... But it isn't pretty.  I kid... But only a little. 

Coming off of the processed, sugars, and oil isn't easy.  I love food. I am keeping everything simple.  

It isn't miserable, just slightly annoying.
Headaches, grouchiness, and fighting cravings isn't easy... But then I get a note like this from my son and it's all worth it! ;) 

My main struggle on day four is resisting temptation. Since my family isn't following this change there is still temptation all around me. 

I am also trying to find a good alternative to salad dressing (my poison of choice is italian). I am trying to find one that doesn't include balsamic vinegar, mustard, or hummus... Ick.  

If you have any great dressing recipes  or seasoning you use for salad drop me ain't or leave it in the comments! 

I am excited to hear your ideas! 

No matter what my body puts me through while detoxing from these chemicals I will not give up. I know it's temporary! 

Hugs, love, and health to you all!

Italian dressing - This has a lot of oil but it gives you an idea of the spices so you could play with the recipe.

Eat enough carbs such as boiled or baked potatoes, whole grain bread, or beans to really make you feel full & the desire to eat those forbidden foods will lessen greatly. It won't take long.

Thank you for the great tip! I'm trying to get over my past brain washing that all carbs are bad... Lol
I enjoyed some cubed baked red potatoes last night... ;)

My favorite dressing is honey mustard so I'm not much help on that. Ditto on eating enough starchy carbs. I've been experimenting with that myself this last few days. It's amazing that just 1/4 cup more rice really carries me through the afternoon munchies. You're doing great!

This week I have embraced baked potatoes! I have one potato and a cup of soup and it's filling and good. I prefer nutritional yeast on my potato! Yum!
