Grumpy Cat

{Also known as: Crap Food = Crap Mood: The Mumma Edition}

I have been bad. No excuses {except well maybe: um, hello winter and feeling like utter crud for weeks!} but the past few weeks, then amped up over the past few days I’ve gone particularly hard on the sugar consumption. And not the good dark organic chocolate stuff that you only need a little bit of either. The other rubbish. Quite a lot of it. And ice cream too.

Guess what happens to your happy demeanour if you eat a lot of sugary crap? Grumpy Mumma. Kind of like grumpy cat, but nowhere near as cute. Just ask my critters! Actually, I wasn’t grumpy with them, but I noticed how short-fused I felt and then realised I had done myself absolutely no nutritional favours.

So it’s time to get back on the healthy bandwagon. I know how to do that. In fact, I like it. It makes me feel better. But I’m not one to go cold turkey, and there are a few tasty morsels floating around in my pantry and freezer that might just have to be eaten this week {because wasting them is not an option and I have no idea who that bloke Will Power is so keeping them there isn’t an option either}. I’m going to wean myself over the next week or so and then I’m contemplating another 30 day nutritional cleanse. I should be ready to start that in a couple of weeks when hopefully the weather is just a touch warmer. The benefits of the cleanse I did 10 months ago lasted for months after, so that’s got to be a good thing. 

This probably means the number of sugar-free raw/whole food sweet recipes will increase. Just so you’re prepared! If anyone’s keen to cleanse with me, leave me a message below or PM me. It will be so much easier to do it together!

  1. Happy cleansing! Lovely invitation, but I’ll stick with the ice cream and sugary junk. You haven’t seen grumpy till you’ve seen me without sugar! It’s ugly. 🙂

  2. Hi, I really like the sound of going on a cleanse and the results that you’ve written about here. I did a three-day juice fast 10 years ago that left me feeling head-achey, dizzy and exhausted, with a bizarre orange-tinge to my lips from all the carotene – never again, I vowed. I don’t think I’m ready to do the cleanse with you but am curious about going sugar-free and what it can do for my body/mind, so will be following your posts and recipes with interest!

    I have my own Grumpy Cat here. His name is Scratchy. But I hope my person keeps getting ice cream. Wait! I didn’t get any of it last time. Never mind. She can go without it.

    P.S. Grumpy Cat lives in Arizona – same as me.
