I was really good about posting on my 21 Day sugar detox, then I got tired of posting. I did make it through the whole 21 days, then Thanksgiving with my family in Arkansas. I pretty much bailed out on just eating real food and I feel like crap!! I am sorry I stalled out on posting what I ate and went through on my 21 DSD, but I am doing it again. I will start January 6th with the groups. It is the first Monday of the month. In celebration of that I am eating real food today! It’s not 21 DSD compliant unless you work out or are pregnant or nursing. I am none of the above!! I will attempt to purchase the new 21 DSD cook book, but since funds are low, it may not happen in time for the start. Okay, here are my breakfast pictures below.
Homemade organic apple sauce sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon. I took all the apples I had and chopped them up, put them in my crock pot and let them cook on low over night. Nothing added to them at all, skins left on. I let them cool a little and put them in my Blendtec blender on the soup setting.
Farm fresh eggs and bacon with sweet potato hash browns. Cooked in, yes bacon grease!! J.E.R.F. = Just eat real food. I really need to stay focused on that!!!
Every Saturday I go to my local co-op, Bountiful Baskets. They are also located in several other states as well as Texas. I contribute on Monday and pick up is on Saturday for my location. They have options every week for extra add on’s and you can either get a conventional basket or an organic basket. I love it because it is like Christmas every Saturday, you never know what fruits and vegetables you will get until you go pick it up, it will expand your horizons so to speak. I have tried a lot more things than I would have if I would have simply because it was in my basket.
A run down of what I got this week, 5 English (seedless) cucumbers 4 1/5 pounds, 2 heads of cauliflower 3 1/2 pounds, 3 pound bag of Fuji apples, 4 Asian pears 1 pound 10 ounces, 1 bunch of radishes 10 ounces, 1 sweet potato 1 1/2 pound, 1 pound of strawberries, green beans 14 ounces and 5 pounds of bananas for a grand total of 21 1/2 pounds of fresh produce for only 16.50 which breaks down to 1.30 a pound. I ask you, where in the world could you get that much high quality produce for such a little money that you didn’t have to grow yourself, exactly nowhere.
