Vegan 21-Day Sugar Detox: Day 10

I woke up starving since I didn't eat much the day before. I didn't get a chance to have breakfast until I got to work, but at that point, I was already past the point of hunger. It was the first time I woke up super hungry, fought through it, and the hunger pangs just leveled out. I guess this was my body finally adapting to the sugar detox.

Breakfast: Green Apple with Almond Butter & Cinnamon

Like the Sunflower-Flax Seed and Almond Mix, this is a treat I look forward to eating every day. 

Lunch: "Not Your Momma's Black Eyed Peas"

Maybe it's because I hadn't eaten this in two days, but I thought this was delicious! I didn't even feel the need to add guacamole and salsa to it.

Snack: Hemp, Sunflower, Flax Seed and Almond Mix

I switched things up a little and threw in some roasted flax seeds. For such tiny seeds, they surprisingly made a pretty big difference in terms of flavor and texture. I seasoned it with the usual Himalayan salt, onion powder and garlic powder. 

Dinner: Spiralized Zucchini with Mama Jess Bean Good Organic Bean Pasta Sauce

My boyfriend discovered this amazingly rich and healthy pasta sauce at Rainbow Acres, our favorite local health food store. It's called Mama Jess Bean Good and it combines organic tomato puree with organic white bean puree. Genius!! The beans give it a thick and creamy texture, but more importantly, they deliver a nutritional punch: protein, fiber and complex carbs. Best of all, the sauce contains ingredients allowed on the detox.
