Today is the first day of going sugarless! I prepped this weekend by getting rid of (i.e. eating) most of the sugary treats I had left in the house. My best friend, who was up visiting for the weekend, took some stuff home with her. I still have a quart of Trader Joe's Cherry Chocolate Chip Soy Ice Cream that I may have to store at my mom's house.
I also dragged my husband and son to Whole Foods to stock up on a few things that Alicia suggested in her book--miso soup (which just sounds yummy), brown rice syrup, etc. However, I discovered that my local grocery store and Trader Joe's (which are both 2 minutes away from my house, as opposed to 45 minutes away) probably have everything I need (I couldn't find miso soup without sugar, brown rice syrup, or Vegenaise at Whole Foods). My son got a vegan blueberry muffin, though, so he was happy, and my husband stoically endured the long grocery store visit. He told me that he knows I'll have to be eating a lot of fresh foods on this quest, and since I don't have a lot of time to go to the grocery store he volunteered to go to the store for me if I needed him to during the week. That is support, people. My man has a strong dislike for any store that does not sell electronics.
I have a delicious lunch packed--turkey, hummus, and alfalfa sprouts on a whole grain tortilla, a big leafy salad, and cherries and blueberries. (When I was living with my parents right after college and was still a vegetarian, I bought sprouts and put them in the fridge. My dad was perusing the shelves one day, spotted the sprouts, and yelled, "Why is there grass in the refrigerator?! It belongs outside!") But I'm going to have problems with breakfast.
I need breakfast ideas, everyone! Please post them.
