Fed-Up Challenge

9 May

I just heard about a really interesting challenge called the Fed-Up Challenge by Katie Couric.  Basically,  for ten days you cut out ALL artifical/added sugars and sweetners(honey and mollasses included) .  I’m going to give it a try because I want to see if there really is a big difference in my energy levels, my skin complexion, and my overall well being. 

As some of you know, I come from a family of sweets eaters.  The Hancock side of my family is known for all of our decadent desserts like strawberry cheesecake, pound cake, red velvet cake, sweet potato pie…..you see where I’m going with this?  I have no doubt these dishes have a lot of sugar in them because I have made them myself.  However,  I try to make those dishes for special occassions like birthdays and holidays.  I have to be honest, I’m not sure how well I am going to do with this challenge because I can be a big snacker. My biggest addiction is chocolate.  Oreos, chocolate cake, brownies….anything like that will have me slip up everytime.  I am hoping that after this challenge is over.  I will be able to report back the progress I made cutting out all those extra hidden sugars.  You are all welcome to join me on this journey to wellness and self-improvement.

Here’s to having a happy, healthy fed-up challenge!

    I am such a sweet fiend – I have a couple ‘sweet’ recipes that have no added sweeteners (not even honey, agave or molasses) that I turn to when I am trying to be super clean – I made brownies with black beans, organic unsweetened apple sauce, coconut oil, raw cacao, flax & water….tasty and totally knock off the cravings – good luck!

    I’d love to hear how you go with this!
    I myself gave up sugar and all processed foods 8 weeks ago. Chocolate was the hardest for me, but I’ve been making my own chocolate with coconut oil, raw cacao powder and a few other ingredients. X

      I will definitely keep y’all posted! Chocolate is definitely my weakness! And just yesterday I’ve realized that there is sugar in almost EVERYTHING. We’ll see how it goes
