For those who know me - I'm all about the savoury, I'll choose fries with all the sauce over a sweet fix any day. That was until I fell pregnant! I'm 24 weeks deep and am OBSESSED with sugar. The daily cake and Bounty Bars have slipped in a permanent slot (morning or mid afternoon) and then Ben & Jerry's to finish the day. In the beginning I was loving the guilt free indulgence.... Though over the past 2 weeks I've been feeling shiiiiiiiiit - headaches, lethargic and bad skin. So maybe this is all just pregnancy stuff or maybe the sugar is bringing me down birds? So as I roll in to Day 4, needless to say this is draaaaaging. Everywhere I go I see cake, last night reached new levels - I even DREAMT about the cake!! (WTF, for those interested - in my dream I ate the cake).
So here's to going cold turkey until I can kick the habby - no more refined sugar. FYI I'm still eating loads of fruit and using (a little) honey or maple syrup on my porridge or pancakes.... Mmm think I want pancakes this week (see! Total addict!)
What got me through the weekend? CHIA PUDDING. Oh-so-versatile and I've stumbled across some amazing recipes from Delicious & Healthy By Maya. I even had one breakfast this morning. Mine was a mash up hers - using her basic Chia Pudding recipe, mixed in a blitzed banana and greek yoghurt into it. Topped with coconut & a few slices on banana. Get in my face hole.
Wish me luck birds!
