Recap Day 1 – If you missed Day 1, here it is.

Day 2 Recipe: Asian Salad Wraps

Here is the recipe PDF for Day 2

Then we are going to make a delicious Asian Salad Wrap. It works for the whole family! We pride ourselves of making our Keto Gone Green Program (which is our 4-week coaching program where we do a deep dive into this sugar-free lifestyle, completely guided by us, complete with 4 weeks worth of recipes, shopping list, supplements guides, nutrition lessons, mediations, exercise class and more) our recipes are tried and tested recipes that work every time. So many recipes on the internet JUST DON’T WORK! We’ve been chefs for years and know what it takes to make a great recipe (kid-friendly too)

We also loved hearing what alternative ingredients we’d all love to put in these delicious and satisfying wraps! Some of us would add:

      • Avocado
      • Hemp Seeds
      • Pumpkin Seeds
      • Tempeh
      • Sprouts
      • Beets instead of carrots
      • Herbs like mint
      • Nori, chard, romaine, or coconut wraps instead of collards

We also covered:

The #1 BIGGEST mistake that is keeping you addicted to sugar:

What’s the biggest mistake keeping you addicted? MINDSET! Do you keep saying things like “I’m addicted to sugar!” OR “OH I can never give up XYZ… (hidden sugars in bread, white food, and beer). It’s time to let go of limiting beliefs around food. FOOD AND SUGAR DON’T CONTROL YOU! Your NEW saying: “I CHOOSE to avoid those foods, or I DON’T (not I can’t) eat that because I want to be vibrant, slim and healthy!

It’s not about being perfect, we all eat treats once and a while, but it’s about awareness and choosing your sugars wisely – good, better, best ⇒ always stay away from high fructose corn syrup. Instead, choose coconut sugar or nectar + stevia + Lakanto and natural fruit sugars.

We know you’ve tried, you may have gotten a week in, maybe even 2 and then all of a sudden it hits…(we must check our grain and dairy intake!) unintentional sugar intake

How to have it not control you? Here are our top techniques for stopping a craving

  1. Future Pace – how do you want to feel in an hour? Tomorrow? Later with your kids? At your work? ON the scale tomorrow morning?
  2. Willpower – willpower doesn’t work! Just Don’t Have unhealthy food around. Sometimes we need to go cold turkey. The more we taste it (even little tastes) triggers our brain to want more
  3. IF THEN SCENARIO – if I want a cookie THEN I’m going to….Go for a walk, get out of the house and out of your head! Call a friend, do some jump roping, hula hoop, jumping jacks, dance to one entire song.
    1. Do 20 pushups or squats, jog around your house 3 times, get in the dirt, ground, earth
  4. Minerals and mineral deficiency – vitamin D (sugar increases an enzyme that blocks the absorption of Vitamin D) magnesium (high blood sugar decrease mad absorption, magnesium is a key piece in stabilizing blood sugar so when it is depleted it is a downward spiral), omega 3’s can all help with sugar cravings THIS IS WHY IT’S SO BAD DURING THIS TIME OF VIRUS SCARE, DEPLETED MINERALS FURTHER DEPLETE YOUR ADRENALS AND IMMUNE SYSTEM
  5. Make yourself a ‘treat’ – Make sparkling water with lemon and stevia instead
  6. Hydrate – make a green juice. Alkalize!
  7. Cut it out cold turkey – Once those GUT MICROBES CHANGE in your gut, you won’t have to do all the tricks because….you just won’t CRAVE IT! But until then, sometimes you just need to distract yourself. Taste buds will change. Use spicy, flavorful ingredients to help
  8. Substitute: use stevia or Lakanto, cinnamon, vanilla, spices, coconut milk (all naturally sweet) in recipes
  9. Eat MORE FAT!!! To feel satiated longer…
