weeks 2 & 3 - i quit sugar

So, I started the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Plan three weeks ago. There are only five weeks left, but I hear that week 4 is the most intense...! The hardest part for me is obviously the weekends. I can keep myself on a good schedule during the work week, but as soon as the weekends hit, all bets are off! I know that is something I definitely need to work on during the coming weeks. Another issue is that week 3 was basically non-existent for me. I did not get around to going to the grocery store before week 3 started, so I did not have the essential ingredients to make the meals. Instead, I made some week 1 and week 2 meals if I had leftover ingredients. I know that was not the point of the plan, but it was better than going back to old habits I thought. I am determined to make week 4 better and actually go shopping this weekend! 

Other than those issues, I am really enjoying the plan. I have stepped up my game in the kitchen and am finding fun, new recipes that I know I will continue to make even when the 8 weeks are up. Some of my favorite meals on the plan so far have been the Pumpkin, Sage, and Mozzarella Pizza, the Corn Fritters (I actually started making these all the time, I'm obsessed!), the Spiced Coco-Nutty Breakfast Muffins, the Curried Vegetable Empanadas (these actually looked gourmet haha!), and the Vegetarian Pad Thai. I am sad that I missed out on making the Coco-Nutty Granola and Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls in week 3. I need to find a way to add those into the coming weeks somehow. 

Check out some of the concoctions below!
