what I Eat in a Day - Sugar Free

Hi guys, we’re nearly at the end of August, and that means we’re nearly at the end of sugar free August. My next post is going to be my update on how that went and anything I’ve noticed in terms of personal changes. Of course, I’ll mention what I’ve been eating briefly in that post, but I thought I’d give you a preview of what my meals have been looking like. So, this is my what I eat in a day – sugar free summer edition.  

This was taken from a weekend, and my meals weren’t that structured. And, this is one day from a month. If there’s something missing here that doesn’t mean that it’s missing every day.  

Breakfast 10:45am 

Blueberry Smoothie Bowl  

As this was a weekend, I started eating later than usual and my breakfast was more of a brunch. I had a smoothie bowl, which is what I’ve had most days this month. It’s been working well as it’s been so hot here in the UK this summer. I’ve done a post with a really similar recipe to this before, although that one was prettier.

Snack 1pm  

Nakd Bar & No Added Sugar Yoghurt 

Nakd bars have been a lifesaver this month. The sweeter flavours taste like you’re having a real treat but they’re still only made of fruit and nuts. Discovering this yoghurt has been great to have in

Dinner 7:30pm  

My Go-To Salad  

I’m obsessed with this salad. It’s really filling but still light enough for my smaller appetite in summer. Recipe for this here.

Dessert/ Snack 

Urban Fruit Strawberries  

I love these little things. They kind of taste like a healthy fruit gum. The strawberry ones are my favourite. They’re strawberries baked in apple juice. The apple juice makes them sweeter and they have a gummy texture because they’re baked.  

This was a short one today but this is an example of what kind of things I’ve been eating this month. What would be your favourite meal or snack? 

Until next time,

    1. I was so shocked! It was hard for the first 7 or 8 days then it really did get a lot easier than I was expecting. I don’t know if you can get Urban Fruit in the US but, if you can, they’re amazing!! Thank you! x

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you found it useful! I didn’t have a tonne of sugar in my diet before this but when I did eat sugar, I used to have a lot in one go usually. Good luck cutting down x

  4. Everything here looks really tasty! I’m a big fan of Nakd bars, they make nice healthy snacks. My fave is the cookie cashew one. You have done so well to do a whole month sugar free Sophie, that’s impressive! Looking forward to reading your update <3 xx

    1. I don’t think I’ve tried the cashew one! I really like the peanut delight though. The ones that are supposed to be cake flavoured have been helping me trick my brain this month. It’s been a bit easier than I thought it would be! Thank you so much! x

  5. Wow, everything looks delicious. I really need to start eating healthier once the baby is born. All I crave is cakes, chocolate and, strangely, ice! Everything else makes me feel ill.

    1. I love Nakd bars! They’re a great little snack. Haha I’m forever setting myself little challenges. It’s turned out to be a bit easier than I expected x

    1. I go through phases with smoothie bowls where I eat loads of them then don’t touch them for months. The giving up sugar thing got a lot easier after the first 7 or 8 days if you can make it that far! x


    1. I usually get the one with almonds in but that has some added sugar so I’ve had to give it up this month. I’ve never tried the one with oats but that snack sounds delicious x

  6. Your go to salad is still my favourite meal of yours. And I never tried whole sugar free day. I am not even sure if I could pull it off. It’s interesting to read what one can eat without added sugar.

  7. I loved reading this post because I love looking at what other people eat in the day (I love blog posts to do with food). The foods in these pictures look amazing. That salad looks absolutely delicious. Looking forward to reading your future posts!

  10. That salad looks so yummy! I love the Nakd bars too, before I tried them I NEVER expected them to taste that sweet and delicious! Some of the flavours I actually find a little too sweet which I never thought would be the case. Smoothie bowls are something I’d love to get into as they look and sound amazing, I’m just a bit lazy oops! Looking forward to seeing what effect no sugar has had on you.
