No sugar Fed UP Challenge-Day 4

Published on June 5, 2014, by in Recipes, Update.

Brian and I are on day four of the Fed Up Challenge of not eating any added sugar.

For the most part, we are both doing great! I’m so proud of Brian as he has given up regular and diet pop. I kicked that habit a few years ago and it was tough. I was a Diet Coke addict.

The hardest part is there is very little “quick” food to go to. It’s all processed and has added sugar. Last night I was really tired from 3 nights in a row of bad sleep and didn’t have the energy to make dinner. Finally, I came up with some quick Mexican pizzas with corn tortillas, black beans, sweet potato, corn, and chicken. I topped them with hot sauce and cheese. Added an apple with a little coconut butter as a side and called it a meal.

So, what’s the plan for the next 6 days?

Brian’s been wanting pizza, so I am going to make dough and sauce from scratch so we can make that happen. I’ve also been scouring Pinterest for ideas of things to make this weekend. Here are some of the options I’ve come up with:

This ginger lime shrimp quinoa:

This quick and easy coconut curry:

And these whole-wheat seeded loaves to have more bread on hand…and it just looks amazing.

Ever since I got my cheese making kit in the mail a few weeks ago(and haven’t even opened it yet!), I’ve been wanting to make cheese. This triple pepper jack might be the first one and would taste amazing on that seeded bread!

What’s on your agenda for the weekend? It looks like I’ll be spending a fair amount of time in the kitchen!
