Monday after work I met my good friend Robyn for Happy Hour over in NE Portland (Alberta).
I’d gone to NE Alberta a few weeks ago for dinner with another friend and had disappointing Greek food. This time? Much better!
I met Robyn at The Blue Olive. I have to say that I love my new work schedule. Getting off at 4:30 means I don’t miss happy hour times! We both arrived at 5 and had an hour left of the happy hour pricing.
The place was cute and small. Before I even arrived I’d decided to skip the alcohol as part of the Sugar Detox. Not that I plan on giving up all alcohol while I kick my candy habit, but I really didn’t want anything to drink! I ordered Persian Tea instead.
Robyn and I split an order of hummus and freshly made pita bread (YUM). The bread was piping hot. The hummus was delicious too–it could have used a tad more garlic or something but it was much better than a few weeks ago when I went to The Hilt.
I had a wonderful evening chatting with my friend. The salad and hummus filled my belly and I didn’t feel like I needed to order anything more. Although, I saw several other diners with yummy looking rice and kebobs…I would definitely return to eat those someday!
I got home from happy hour and wasn’t really hungry but I was craving dessert. I really wanted to have a little something. But I resisted and did not have any dessert. I did munch on a few tortilla chips but no dessert!
SUGAR DETOX- DAY TWO
Today is Tuesday and so far I’ve been successful once again with not eating candy. And today was a challenge! Tuesday morning the bosses hosted a breakfast thing for Administrative Professionals. There were scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, yogurt, granola, coffee, juice…Bagels:
I’m happy it’s now the second day and I’m still not giving into cravings or temptations to eat candy. My hope is that I can get it out of my system this week and next week when Michael and I try the low-carb diet the transition will be easier for me than stopping all carbs and sugar cold-turkey.
QUESTION: What’s your favorite homemade hummus recipe? I’m really looking forward to trying to make my own.
