Restore...Renew Week 3, Day 1: Ain't so Sweet

Hello!  Happy Monday to you all!
Today's challenge is...No starch and No sugar.
Try to cut these two out of your menu today. Our bodies convert starch into sugar, so basically the challenge is to ban any form of sugar from our meals.
Consuming too much sugar can cause our blood glucose to fluctuate.  This has an effect on our energy levels. our emotional stability and may cause cravings.  Sugar increases our health risks, leading, for example, to diabetes. Sugar also gives rise to inflammation in the body which can worsen joint pain and cause flare-ups in individuals with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Starch gets broken down into sugar and in turn excess sugar is easily changed into fat.
So, there you have it for today.  Sugar and starch free Monday.
