Meal Plan for a Sugar Detox Diet

Meal Plan for a Sugar Detox Diet

There are many delicious recipes and foods available to help you reduce your sugar intake. Some are convenient and make great snacks and others take a bit more time to put together because they are natural and not processed.

One meal that you can have for breakfast, lunch or dinner is in the form of a smoothie (or juice). There are many ways to juice and create smoothies without adding sugar and some premixed smoothies containing sugar-free ingredients are available on the market today.

For smoothies, use fresh ingredients when possible. Tomato juice (sugar-free) is a good liquid to use with other vegetables such as cucumbers, peppers, onions and garlic. Fruits such as papaya, pears and kiwi contain good sugars and can be used to make delicious smoothies.

Choosing cheese on a sugar-free diet can be confusing. With some, it depends on the process used to make the cheese – such as using a culture that will consume the lactose.

Goat and sheep’s milk typically contain lower levels of lactose. Making a cheese omelet for breakfast and adding some avocado, spinach and some herbs such as chives or parsley is a sugar-free and healthy choice for your first meal of the day.

When you’re eliminating or reducing the amount of sugar in your diet, turn to comforting soups that contain carbohydrates that help your metabolism. Vegetable soup containing carrots, potatoes, celery, onions and whatever other vegetables you enjoy is a good choice for lunch or dinner.

Branch out from typical vegetable soups to creamy and delicious soups by using spinach and carrots. If you’re a bread junkie, you don’t have to do without it on the sugar detox diet.

Sugar-free and gluten-free breads are now readily available in your supermarket – or make your own. There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh-baked bread. Sugar-free crackers are also available and make a good substitute for creating sandwiches.

Snacks that are sugar-free can revive you when you experience afternoon slumps. Veggies are always good snacks and you can make great dips from sour cream, onion, garlic and other herbs and seasonings.

Dinner can be exciting when you create dishes that are both fillings, delightful to look at and sugar free. Lamb, chicken breasts and fish recipes that are sugar-free can be found online or in books.

You can even have dessert on your sugar-free diet. Fruit tarts using a sugar-free pastry and lactose-free milk and cream – plus berries you enjoy is a low-calorie and excellent way to end a meal.

Be creative on the sugar-free detox plan so you don’t get bored. By following some general rules about which food items to use and which to avoid, you can create some dishes that will delight your entire family.
