It's been 3 months since I began this health journey. I am down 18 lbs. and am having many more energy-filled days than I used to have. I am no longer as strict as I was, but as much as possible I do try to eat fresh, natural foods that I prepare myself.
I have discovered and fallen in love with coconut flour. It is high in fiber and low in carbs. I have been making pancakes with it and little tea cakes which have been a big hit with my friends. I can't wait to try it in cookies. I use Truvia as the sweetner, which is granulated stevia.
I am so pleased that this way of eating has also lowered by blood sugar and I seldom suffer from insomnia anymore. I hope to continue to be good to my body by only filling it with good stuff.
