Wow! I don’t know why, but these last few days have been really difficult. I just had the strongest desire to go to the store, buy a bag of peanut m&ms ms, and inhale the whole thing! I didn’t and now the urge is fading slowly, but I really almost did it. I know if I had I would have completely regretted it and had a stomach ache. All day long at work, the same thing…I wanted candy so bad. I didn’t have any cravings like that with my first detox. I’m thinking its work stress. :(.
My food was comprised completely of leftovers today. I’ll be heading to the farm tomorrow for more meat, so I wanted to clean out what’s in the fridge. For breakfast I had leftover meatloaf…who says breakfast has to be eggs?? And for lunch I had leftover version stew. I originally planned on making an actual dinner, but was running late at work so I had my husband pick up the kids and grab Chinese food for the three of them. When I got home I ate more meatloaf.
I made a cup of peppermint hot chocolate to quench my candy craving. It did the trick!
Here’s how I made it:
Peppermint Hot Chocolate-
2/3 cup full fat coconut milk
1/3 cup almond milk
3 tbsp unsweetened cacao powder
1/8 tsp peppermint extract
Stir the almond milk and coconut milk in a pot and bring to boil. Reduced to a simmer and add cacao powder. Whisk in until completely dissolved. Pour into mug and stir in peppermint extract. ENJOY!
*You could add a tablespoon of maple syrup or raw honey to sweeten it if you’re not doing a sugar detox 😉
