Easter Monday aka Sugar Detox Day

For those of you who have been following along - I've been working on a new diet plan.  It basically includes eating all whole grains, fruits, veggies, no sugar, refined foods or white flour.  You know, just skip all those things that Americans eat :)  What I forgot to mention on my list of what not to eat is a doozy:  chocolate.  That's right, no chocolate according to the new plan. 

The plan also says eat 80% of what's healthy and you can splurge the other 20% will largely be composed of chocolate :)

I've been trying out different whole grains and ways to cook them.  Honestly, I thought it would be a lot harder than it has been, but I gave up white flour and sugar for Lent, so it hasn't been a very big transition.

What I have noticed is that while my weight hasn't budged, my stomach seems smaller and I feel really good.  Apparently eating healthy can do more than help have a side benefit, I get to feel great too!

Yesterday was a feast of refined deliciousness, so today, it's back to the wholesome.  This morning's steel cut oats were leaps above the traditional ones last week :)

With my update about food over, let's move on to the pictures of this week:
