Welcome to day twenty-four of the Sugar Free Challenge!
Did you know today is National Peanut Butter Day? Yes! My favorite food has its own holiday. So I declare today to be a day full of finger-lickin (literally. try dipping your finger in peanut butter. Tastes way better than on a spoon) Peanut butter-goodness.
Here is today’s Peanut Butter-Filled sample menu:
Lunch: How about a good ol’ PB&J?
Dessert: I have plenty of peanut-butter filled options for this course. Above, the Grain-Free Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Sauce is a for sure winner. Also try Peanut Butter Cups and Banana Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Crust.
Exercise Option: For those of you who chose to take part of the exercise challenge, your challenge today is to do 50 crunches, 10 squat jumps, 15 pushups, 20 1-legged calf raises (10 each leg).
Personal Note: Today I get the stitches out of my mouth, so hopefully I will be able to move my mouth more easily. I feel better and better each day, and was able to do a bit of light exercise yesterday. I’m still on a liquid diet, but hopefully having the stitched removed will help me be able to eat more.
THOUGHT-PROVOKING, MIND-PRODDING QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Do you love peanut butter as much as me? What are your favorite ways to eat it, and what are your favorite recipes?
Remember that you can track what you eat on the printable Challenge Checklist.
