Sugar-Free Guide.

I know it is not easy to cut out sugar. Trust me, I attempt it multiple times a year and each time I’m surprised by how much added-sugar is in food items.

The most important aspect to succeed at cutting out unnecessary added-sugar is having the knowledge in your back pocket. Once you know the basics, what ingredients to be on the lookout for, and staple recipes to turn to, then it’s quite simple. And let’s not forget how wonder your body feels when you are cutting added-sugar from your diet.

To start off with you’ll want to know what to be on the look out for in the ingredient lists. The easiest solution is to eat mainly whole foods but I know at times you’ll want shelf, packaged food, and in these times we’ll need to examine the ingredient list to make sure the item is deemed clean. I’ve wrote about how to be knowledgeable about this in a recent post.

Next you’ll want to be equipped with what the heck to even buy at the grocery store. We can’t just be aimlessly strolling around the store looking for anything that doesn’t contain added-sugar. Grocery shopping would just be ridiculous then! That is why I’ve put together my own personal shopping list for you. These ingredients line up with a lot of my favorite recipes including the most popular on this site – Homemade Ranch Dressing.

Sugar Free Shopping List

The last item I have for you at the moment to help build success during this journey to body-feeling-goodness wellness is a Weekly Planning Sheet. Printing this sheet off and filling it out at the beginning of the week sets you on the path to hitting your goals and eating clean. By having a plan, you’re less likely to slip up.

Disclaimers: This does not mean you need to eat healthy at all times. Splurges are needed! But plan them into your week so you know when you’ll be treating yourself and you then have something to work towards. I personally use this strategy because if I don’t plan in splurges into my week, I feel like I am depriving myself from items I do enjoy indulging in.

Also, cravings will happen! Listening to your body is also important so sometimes the plan will need to change. This is completely okay and also needed. (More will come about how to work with cravings to stay healthy)
