Food Sober Spring Holiday Weekend- 8th year in a row!!!

This is my 8th year in a row in my food sober Easter/Spring Holiday weekend.

Photos of what I'm doing. This is what works for me. Endorphins and avoiding T2D. Saying yes to meat and veg. Brings a lot better life to living.

Getting high on flowers not food!

Food sober glucose readings

Mild Keto for the WIN!!!

Pokemon > Peeps 

Me: Where are my glasses? Cat: OMG I see wrinkles!

There is life beyond the Easter Junk, I promise. If you are mid PEEP and Jelly Belly Binge, set down that crap and step outside the cycle.

What didn't work for me: Food addiction kills and causes emotional and physical pain. Sure getting food high was "fun" but nearly eating myself to death really didn't work.

Food sober living has it's good and bad. My life is a whole lot better outside the cycle. Onward and step out, when you are ready.

Please know if you are abstaining from Easter or Passover or ANY holiday foods, you are not alone.
Onward and here's to finding your endorphins outside the cycle of addiction.


  1. Happy Easter, Karen! Enjoy your day! I'm abstaining, too. I'm 13 months into eating no grains, almost a year into eating no dairy (dropped it last summer whereas I dropped grains last March), and eating very limited sugar (in the form of some fruit and 85 and 90 percent dark chocolate). I'm not going back! Love the picture of you and your cat!

    1. LOL!! Debated posting it but the one cat is so funny. I decided I must. Yep!!! Now knowing how good the food tastes and how good I feel. I'm not going back either. Nice to be on weight maintenance island. I eat blueberries (only when I'm not trying to lose weight- so maintenance only) and I do eat some 85% chocolate sometimes. 72% on holidays with no binge urges.

      Happy Spring! Happy Easter. Glad you are in a good space.From my taste testing the brisket is going to be fab for today's Easter meal.

  2. Good job on another food sober holiday!

    1. Quick question for you MaryFran. Are you in maintenance? Also are you low carb? Thanks in advance.

  3. Great job! I went to an Easter luncheon and of course had no sugar...there was a lot of it!
    Being food sober gives us such great energy to tackle the sugared up millions!

    1. Yayyyy! I got a little hypnotized by the jelly beans for a while, but I realized I was staring and stopped. LOL Yes! Energy and patience. I'm full of energy but running out of patience.

      I did have a fantastic convo about a person who grew up in South America- equator close. Great stories about tropical fruit. My ancestors came from Europe not close to anything but stone fruit and berries. I also noticed body comp differences of the vegans vs meat eaters. Interesting. Age also plays a part.
