Decolonizing our Diets: 30 Days No Added Sugar

In Episode 20, I talk about warrior living from a health perspective and the importance of decolonizing our diets. This is Part 1 of a series I plan to do on eliminating unhealthy goods from our diets and focusing on healthy foods – like some of our traditional foods. I talk about the health risks of added sugar in our diets and my journey on the 30 Day No Added Sugar Challenge.

UPDATE: I have now surpassed 60 days of no added sugar!! I am so pumped that I made it this far!! To be honest, I survived by knowing I could have my spinach drink every morning and instant hot soups for lunch that contained tons of veggies.

I followed my older sister’s footsteps and bought a Vitamix. She has used it for years, but I couldn’t get over the price – it was so expensive. But I decided to invest in my nutrition and I am so glad I did!!

With or without an expensive blender, the addition of more veggies in my diet made me feel so much healthier and gave me lots more energy.
