No Carbs for the Week and Coconut Sugar
Sunday, October 20, 2013
My other vice is sugar, which is significantly more in my diet that breads and carbs. The amount of sugar in my coffee exceeds the daily amount of sugar, add in the natural sugar in fruit, and I can easily be 3x-4x over the recommended daily amount. I did some research on sugar alternatives, and I read that coconut sugar is a better alternative that is very low on the glycemic scale and also has less calories that sugar.
These two changes in my diet will force me to really prepare what I eat each day and to be more creative with my meals. I already went to the grocery store and have prepared Monday's meals.
1 egg with cheese
Coffee w/coconut sugar and milk
Parfait (Greek yogurt, granola, and apple)
