21 Day Sugar Detox, Day 11: aaaaaaaand there’s the wall.

Posted by on Dec 6, 2012 in 21 DSD Daily Eats | 4 comments

In hindsight, I should have probably eaten a bit more than this today:

apple and almond butter

Before 4:30 pm, when I finally got home after running around doing errands and meeting with people.

Before you yell at me… Okay fine. I’m completely deserving of a good talkin’ to. I ate this silly breakfast (the first fruit I’ve had during the sugar detox, by the way) thinking that I would be getting lunch while out doing errands.

It didn’t happen.

I did, however, have a lovely cup of tea with my friend who lives in Marin with a pretty nice view of Mt Tam:

And then, back in San Francisco, I had some more tea with Mary of Clean Eats, who is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to open a paleo kitchen and community HQ. I am downright giddy about this project, for many reasons. The selfish reason is that it will most likely be a wonderful place to have more paleo popups, in a kitchen where there is no concern of cross contamination. How great is that?!

Basically, what all this means is that sometime in 2013, there will not only be a shared gluten-free commercial kitchen for GF chefs and bakers to create their goods, but also a paleo HQ, for the community to play and learn. San Francisco is officially the best place on the planet. But I’m biased.

On the way home, I stopped at my neighborhood co-op to get some jasmine flowers to infuse in vodka. It’s for a special holiday drink, which I’ll tell you more about when this sugar detox is over.

Last stop, Noriega Produce, to get some spicy sausage to make the fastest dinner I can think of: zoodles and Quick Bolognese.

food… finally

After wolfing down a giant bowl of that, I hit the proverbial wall. Put a fork in me…

11 days down, 10 to go!

  1. Your dinner looks delish!..I make zoodles too!!

    • I had no idea how much I’d love them! Definitely in the regular rotation in this house.

  2. I found cutting up fruit for my boys’ lunch yesterday incredibly tempting. I just want one friggin’ piece of this orange!!!! The pre-bedtime treat of a banana milkshake also had me flustered. I’m trying to stay away from dairy as well (except butter), and the bananas were VERY ripe, but I did taste a little drip that landed on my finger. I’M ONLY HUMAN!!!

    • For real, Jessica! And think about how much of an effort you’re putting in to do something positive for your health. Definitely trumps a little taste of ripe banana. BY FAR! I purposely didn’t do this detox while all the good summer fruit was in season. I look forward to it all year!
