If you haven’t already heard, on Monday I started another round of The 21-Day Sugar Detox. If you’ve been around long enough, you know that this isn’t my first rodeo. In fact, this is probably about the 10th time over the course of the past 3 ½ years that I’ve taken on this 3 week challenge. Why? Because frankly I feel 1000x better when eating real food, but more on that later.

So what is the 21-Day Sugar Detox? In the words of the creator of the program {and one of my biggest idols} Diane Sanfilippo, The 21-Day Sugar Detox is a real food reset, to help you drop processed foods, reset your taste buds, enjoy the food you eat and improve your health.

What does the 21DSD look like? It means we’re cutting out processed foods, added sugars, gluten, grains, alcohol and {for some} dairy. Additionally, this time through I’m also ditching caffeine as a whole because if you know me, you know that I live for coffee and while that isn’t necessarily bad {as long as you’re not loading it with crap filled creamer and tablespoons of sugar} it’s also not necessary. I’m young, healthy and energetic and I definitely don’t need coffee to help me function on the daily.

Why do I choose to participate regularly in the 21DSD? In all honesty, I eat a real food/paleo diet 85% of the time but I personally choose to still do the 21DSD multiple times throughout the year for 2 reasons. 1) First and foremost, I do it because it makes me feel like a million bucks. It’s so refreshing to cut all of the shit out of my diet and really take the time to realize how good your body is designed to feel every single day.  2) I do it because it makes me feel the absolute most confident in own skin than I ever have before. I felt it the first time I did the program and I’ll feel it again once I complete my tenth time too.

Who is the 21DSD right for? Are your sugar cravings uncontrollable? Do you have a hard time  knowing what is healthy and what is not? Are you looking to put your health first this year? Do you find yourself with frequent headaches, joint pain, bloating, discomfort, digestive pain, skin reactions, inflammation, acne, brain fog, moodiness and more? Would like to give your body a fresh start? Are you struggling to maintain energy throughout your day? Are you looking to increase your nutritional knowledge? Do you want to break the chains food has on your life? If you answered YES to any of the above, this program is perfect for you.

Who is the 21DSD probably not best suited for? Do have a history of an eating disorder or disordered eating? Do you follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle? Are you a moderator vs. an abstainer and that thought of not being able to have something sends you into a crazy panic? If you answered YES to any of the above questions, you probably won’t find a lot of personal success with the program.

I don’t push anything on anyone, but if I can be completely honest with you, doing this detox for the 1st time was one of the most eye opening things I’ve done for myself and my health in my entire life. I also know that the vast majority of clients who I’ve coached through this program feel the exact same way. Read some of their testimonials here.

There’s no denying that it takes a new way of thinking {and cooking} to be successful on this program, but with a little bit of planning and a lot of resourcefulness, you can take control of your life!

I have a PINTEREST page filled with 21DSD approved recipes and so does the official 21DSD page. There is an amazing online community both through Define Fettle and the 21DSD and I’m regularly publishing 21dsd approved recipes on my blog.

This is a great segue into the {Apple Almond Butter Scrambler} recipe that I have to share with you today.
