    Hi! I'm Arielle, and over the course of 30 days, I did a sugar detox. That means no added sugar, no fake sugars, no honey, no agave, no stevia, and no artificial sweeteners.

    You can read all about my detox here. You can also read my full food diary here.

    Here are some of my favorite recipes from the experiment.

    I had to make some adjustments, but overall, they only include natural sugar (like, the kind that naturally occurs in fruit and dairy). Enjoy!

    1. 2-Ingredient Pancakes

    2. Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

    3. Egg, Spinach, and Mushroom Quesadillas

    4. Egg-in-the-Hole Reinvented

    5. Sweet Potato Toast

    6. Healthy Egg White Breakfast Cups

    7. Acorn Squash Breakfast Bowl

    8. Grilled Cheese with Brussels Sprouts, Apple, and Havarti

    9. Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

    A low-carb option with a ton of vegetables! I added corn, black beans, red peppers, lime yogurt sauce (plain nonfat Greek yogurt, lime juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper), and avocado to add some fat and protein. Recipe here.

    10. Sun-dried Tomato and Avocado Grilled Cheese

    11. Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice

    This was by far one of my favorite dinners on this detox! I ended up using the combo of ingredients in other dishes like salads and spaghetti squash boats. I didn't even need the egg or breadcrumbs, the patty held itself together without it. Recipe here.
