BEDM - Food Glorious Food


Right now Jim and I are on a detox style diet. I believe some call it clean eating. I call it horrible. Basically, we're not eating carbs, or sugar, or dairy, or caffeine or alcohol at the moment, so food has taken a slightly different role in our lives. 

We're entering week 4 now, and I won't lie, it's still not easy, but it is far more manageable than it was. Mostly because I am not craving Coke Zero anymore. Don't get me wrong, I miss it, but I'm not craving it any more. It makes it slightly harder that I work for bars and restaurants and spend all day surrounded by not only the sight of amazing food, but the smell too. 

But on to what we can have - we're eating a LOT of tomatoes. And soups. And salads. And fruit. And drinking fruit teas. I just wish they were a little more flavoursome. I miss cordial and it's sugary goodness. 

And we get one cheat meal a week (this week it'll be two as I have a few things planned) but it's still meant a huge change in our lives. The big change for us is that it has meant food is a little less glorious at the moment. Mostly because there is no cake or ice cream to be had on this diet - And all I want is a big fat slab of cake like the one above.

  1. I really should do a detox diet, I swear all I do is eat unhealthy food. Good luck with the rest of it!

  2. I love the idea of eating "clean" - nothing icky and processed. Definitely feeling the need to nourish my body :)

    1. You'd be amazed how much you can no longer eat if you cut out the processed crap. It's really depressing. x

  4. Keep going with your detox diet - the satisfaction of keeping to it will by far outweigh the temporary satisfaction of chocolate cake. Go you!

    1. Haha. I think chocolate cake might be better than satisfaction. x

  7. Are you allowed spices? I find that spices and lemon juice can do a lot to bring out the flavour and help curb sugar cravings.

  9. I should do a detox diet too. Way too much sugar, meat, fat and carbs lately. How long are you doing the diet for?
