This first week of no sugar and no caffeine my goal was to read my Bible whenever I felt cravings so that I would learn to lean on Jesus rather than food. This turned out to be more difficult than I thought.
For one I often can’t tell whether I’m actually hungry and should eat or I’m just craving food for another reason. Second, I find myself in the kitchen starting to make something to eat before I even remember that I committed to reading the Bible first.
Here’s a quick review of the week and what I ate. This isn’t comprehensive since I didn’t include all of the snacks I ate each day but it’s pretty close.
Omelette with spinach and mushrooms, avocado
Salad with leftover green chicken, cucumber, guacamole, turnips, and garlic sauce Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Pops Chipotle salad bowl with double carnitas, red sauce, and guacamole
I did manage to stick very closely to the plan of no sugar and no caffeine. I think the only exception I made was a small wafer and sip of wine during Communion.
For this next week my goal is to spend more time read God’s Word for at least 10 minutes each day regardless of whether I’m experiencing any cravings or not.
