Apart from the sugar cravings that I experienced for the first five to seven days, transitioning to a healthier eating plan was much easier than I expected.
My husband is equally passionate about eating healthy, and my kids were very supportive and willing to try new foods and snacks, so that part was easy.
For the most part we all ate the same foods. My oldest son, Isaac, 11, loves roasted Brussels sprouts and Josh, 8, was a big fan of my roasted kale chips, so I included these foods along with a lot of spices to keep things interesting.
On Saturday afternoon I would enjoy two pieces of dark chocolate with a warm cup of tea and on Sundays I would treat myself to half a glass of red wine.
