A Saturday on a Sugar Detox

It’s the weekend!
But it’s the first weekend in the 21 Day Sugar Detox. This should be interesting.

Or a total disaster.

The Boy and I were noshing on green beans and turkey meatballs at 10 am with our coffee… Because that’s what you do on a sugar detox, right?! (side note so impressed he cooked them AND they were really good)

We took the ferry over to Coronado Island (so beautiful) and were immediately overwhelmed by the smells of waffle cones and ice cream that were wafting right under our noses – taunting us and saying “Eat me! Eat me!” We held our ground and carried on. Then… Cupcakes! But no! We will not cave! It’s only day 6.

Soo we were left on this side of the sign…


Hungry for a snack we thought it would be a good idea to wander the aisles of the local market (a weird hobby of ours) and torture ourselves with all the things we can’t be eating.
Until finally we hit the snacking jackpot


Insert sarcasm here
Or this photo…

Cupcakes? Who needs them!

After we were fully energized on rabbit food we hit the water for a kayaking adventure!


Post kayak party we were starving… So we hit up Burger Lounge for a great 21DSD friendly meal! I also love that they they use grass fed beef! (Although I opted for the turkey)


We came home and still wanted a little snack… Sooo we dug into the “Not Sweet Treat” I made from the 21 Day Sugar Detox cookbook and smothered some not sweet frosting (surprisingly good) on top of it!!


For the “frosting”:
1 tbsp coconut milk
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tsp nut butter (I used macadamia)
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt

Mix it all together and you’ve got yourself some sugar detoxified frosting! 🙂

So day six and we are going strong… But we are off to a party that will be laden with cupcakes and cookies…

Wish us luck!
