I ate only meat, mostly, for the month of March. By “meat,” I mean red meat, poultry, eggs, and seafood. I also ate small amounts of nuts, cheese, and heavy whipping cream.

I spotted these at the grocery store, and thought they looked like a yummy addition to my monthly cheat meal. (I loooove potatoes, but they’re not part of my regular diet).
But on reading the ingredients, I saw there was added sugar — the one thing I won’t cheat on. Sigh. Continue reading
