Tinidazole uk Let’s give up sugar and artificial sweeteners for 10 days! Beginning on Monday, November 11 we will all go on a sweet retreat together. Throw out the extra Halloween candy and transform your taste buds before the holidays!

purchase augmentin We will cut out all foods with added sugars (anything added in manufacturing such as candy, cookies, baked goods but also ketchup, BBQ sauce, flavored yogurt, coffee creamer, instant oatmeal and much more) and artificial sweeteners (anything labeled “sugar free”, sweet-n-low, truvia, stevia, gum, candy, mints). We won’t focus on what we can’t eat, but instead on all of the delicious real, whole foods we can eat.

You can do it! You will quickly realize how many foods we consume daily have added sweetness and how addictive they really are.

I recommend doing this challenge with a friend or group of people for the accountability and support. Ask a friend, co-worker or even your entire family or department at work! The more people doing this with you the easier it will be.

Sign up below to join the challenge! You will receive 10 days of motivation, instruction, nutrition information, meal plans, grocery lists, snack ideas and much more!

If you have never tried spaghetti squash before or haven’t had it in a while, let me remind you of these reasons why it is a great swap for pasta–

-Low in carbs. One cup has about 10 grams of carbs whereas 1 cup of pasta has around 43 grams.

-Low calorie. One full cup of spaghetti squash has about 40 calories, whereas pasta has 220. Need I say more??

-Spaghetti squash is a good source of vitamin C, manganese, potassium and B vitamins. It’s also gluten free!

But the thought of purchasing one and cooking it for the first time can be intimidating. So I broke it down for you —

I cut three slits in the top of it and then put it in the microwave for 3 minutes (If you don’t do this you won’t be able to cut it in half. Trust me. I’ve had a huge knife stuck in one that I couldn’t get out because I skipped this step.)


After you get it out of the microwave cut it in half.

Then take a spoon and scoop out all the insides. Kind of like a cantaloupe.

I cook mine entirely in the microwave. Mainly because it takes less time.

I just sit both sides in there, face up and cook for about 7 minutes. (Microwaves are a topic for another day– I have a love/hate relationship with them. Let’s just say that I go in another room while it is cooking to try to escape the radiation.) You can cook it in the oven, and I should probably start doing that.

To know it’s done make sure it can easily be pulled apart with a fork.

Then scrape it out and you’re done!

I personally use it for a substitution for pasta or rice. It is great with spaghetti sauce, sautéed peppers, onions and meatballs. We had leftover Japanese the other night and I added it and some avocado and it was perfect! I added some herb seasoned olive oil and salt and pepper to it and it was delish!

The Standard American Diet is horrible and is full of convenient, heavily processed foods that are killing us. I watched a documentary that said the way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000. We are sicker, bigger and more tired than we have ever been and the foods we eat are a huge part of that problem.

You want your food to go bad. Ask yourself: if this food item fell under the seat of my car how long would it take to realize it? If a french fry fell under your seat it would probably look the same and possibly taste the same months later. A banana would not.

Foods have become a chemical concoction and our bodies are a test lab. We don’t know how to process and digest these foreign particles. This gets back to my rule of 5 ingredients or less, and know what those ingredients are.

So my advice is to check your pantry and fridge and see what heavily processed items you can swap out for a real food.
