I was really excited about all the recipes in the book after I received it, and even more thrilled, when my husband agreed to do the sugar detox with me.
My main problem is actually gluten, but I thought, cutting out the sugar for a while would not hurt either.
The first problem I had, however, was getting the recipes together.
You would find your recipe on say page 123, but then had to skip to 202 to find a sauce and an extra ingredient on page 42.
Just getting one dinner recipe would take forever.
We finally decided to follow the plan strictly for 10 days. Just could not figure out how to include more in our schedule. We are gone about every other weekend with no possibility to cook, so 10 days sounded like a great start.
I decided to do all the shopping for the 10 days in one go. Getting the shopping list together took forever, due to above mentioned back and forth skipping in the book.
The shopping then cost about twice as much as normal for us, mainly to the large quantity in meats and speciality stuff that had to be purchased. However, this I did not really mind as much, as I figured, it was all for our health.
We started cooking with great enthusiasm on day zero (preparing for day one). Two hours in the kitchen (cleaning excluded).
Day one and food tasted great. I don't really have a sweet tooth, so I wasn't missing anything.
The salmon on day two was absolutely amazing...
By day three, I was getting a little tired of cooking until late into the night...
Today, day four (and a weekend), I got up, we all had breakfast, and after last minute shopping, a quick run, and then bike ride with my daughter, and leftover lunch, I got cooking.
Preparing snack for tomorrow, chicken broth for dinner (which I should have done, the day previously already, as I realized too late), chicken for the soup, cracker for dinner, and the sunbutter brownies that I had promised my children, now four hours later, I am so exhausted, I really just want to sit down and cry.
And dinner is not even done, yet, neither is the kitchen completely cleaned.
That is another thing, usually I run one dishwasher a day, since starting the program, it is two to three.
I spend more time in the kitchen, than I spend with my children, and right now I am seriously thinking about quitting!
I was just so much looking forward to seeing the result that gluten free meals would have on my problems caused by an auto-immune illness. And the result a sugar free diet would have on my husband, since I think he consumes way too much of it, usually.
I still love the recipes, and will continue to cook them, but all in all, I am disappointed.
I am not sure if this could be done differently, but I don't see, how anyone with a job and a family can follow this program without totally exhausting themselves.
