I can’t believe it’s day 6 of the sugar-free info week already!! Now that we’ve covered just about every possible angle of sugar-free I though it would be useful to share a general menu with you to give you some ideas of what to eat.
Now then before I begin I must explain that although the title of this post is the ‘Average week in the life of a Sugar-free’ this is possibly the furthest things from average in my life. I am very realistic that there are so many hours in a day and only so many hours you can spend in the kitchen and if I lived like this menu suggest I don’t think I would ever get any sleep!! If I showed you an average week in my life however, this post would be ridiculously boring and would be of very little help to any one.
Saying that I have eaten every single one of the things on the menu and usually have eaten them in that days order. On the other hand if I’ve made a batch of protein balls I wouldn’t then make a batch of flap-jacks in the same week as they would just go to waste. I also tend to stick to a omelettes for breakfast during the week and have something more exciting at weekends but again I wanted to give you a variety of options. I also don’t have a Sunday roast every Sunday but I wanted to show you that there’s no reason why you can’t.
The other thing I would like to add is fluid intake- On an average day I drink 2-3 litres of water a day (and up to 4 on training days) along with at least 2 cups of green-tea. It’s important to stay hydrated and it helps with energy levels, healthy skin, weight loss, sleep and digestion!! I also have an Protein shake on training days (3-4 times a week) to help my muscles recover and get some extra protein.
So please feel free to pick and choose items from the menu to suit your lifestyle. Following the menu there is a list of links to recipes found on the menu! Happy Eating!
