If you’re like me, you may feel like you’ve over-done it a bit with the homemade butterfingers or peanut butter cups leading up to Halloween. Even naturally sweetened goodies can leave you with a sugar-hangover, if you’re not careful!
It’s also likely that much more sugar is in our future, with the holidays just around the corner.
To prepare for the onslaught of rich, holiday food and inevitable office treats, the lovely Sarah Wilson is hosting an 8-week “I Quit Sugar” Pre-Christmas Program.
What I love about Sarah’s approach to quitting sugar, is that it’s not hard and rigid. You don’t have to give up ALL sugar cold-turkey. (Unless, of course, you want to.)
This challenge is what you make it.
Consider this program a little “8-week experiment.” When the 8-weeks are over, you may want to go back to eating how you were before, but most likely your taste-buds will have adjusted, and your cravings for sugar will be greatly reduced. You may even lose a few pounds, and want to keep going! With no calorie-counting or restrictions on food, this program makes the transition as painless as possible, with some great tips for weaning yourself off sugar, too!
The official challenge is already underway, but you can join in at any time! Mondays tend to be good starting points for most people, so if you’d like to join us, take the weekend to prepare and meet back here on Monday, November 4th, for a tasty, sugar-free recipe!
To join in:
- Buy a copy of Sarah’s “I Quit Sugar” e-book, if you haven’t done so already. (She has a helpful e-cookbook, too!) <– I own both!
- Sign up for her newsletter, to get weekly updates and tips.
- Follow along on Facebook, if you’d like.
If you don’t want to join in, no worries. I have plenty of holiday sweets to share over the next couple of months, too!
Reader Feedback: Leave a comment below if you want to join in! I’ll try to feature at least one sugar-free recipe each week throughout the challenge, and as usual, will post my Wednesday eats for meal ideas.
