Meal Plan Monday Post

It's Monday! And after a weekend filled with travelling, some headaches, and dealing with an insane poison ivy rash, we're a little late with Meal Plan Monday again. But no fear because Monday isn't over and here's the meal plan.

We're kind of dwindling through the last bit of the challenge. I forgot to remind Patrick that Week 12 was no added sweeteners so he wasn't able to forego his diet coke at work this week. I also made a pumpkin bread over the weekend with some sugar in it. I'm just not too excited about practicing an elimination week. I'm fully aware that we probably eat more sugar than I think we do since it's in lots of processed things. But we don't stock our pantry with a lot of processed foods and when I do buy something with a nutrient facts label sugar is now the most important comparison value for me. Fiber and sodium come after that.

Week 12: Avoid all added sweeteners including, but not limited to: white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, honey, maple syrup, date sugar, maple sugar, sucanat, splenda, stevia, agave, fruit juice concentrate, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, brown rice syrup, and cane juice.
