For now during the 30 days of No gluten, sugar, alcohol it is important to eat 4-5 times a day to keep your blood sugar balanced and your hormones. After the 30 days, I will see how it feels to take it down to three meals a day. I want to keep everything steady especially in the afternoon. My meals are higher in protein and healthy fats so I think the transition to 3 meals will be fine. Just not right now. The point is pay attention to how you are feeling. Everyone is different.
The difficult time for me is when I go to make dinner and I am not having a glass of wine. The afternoon snack helps and I try and lay down on the floor for 20 minutes in the afternoon. Balance is the key.
Here is my recipe for Nut Fudge. It is so easy to make. Nut Fudge is a wonderful go to snack. It is very dense and lots of calories so please consider portion size.
It is not too late to join in … Gluten, sugar and alcohol free for 30 days! So much easier with friends! Dr. Northrup says we will feel changes quickly. Balanced hormones are key to fabulous health!
I had a delicious lunch today at Kitch Organic in Red Bank, NJ!
