Haha. Whip.

You all are going to hate me. And judge me. I know it, I just know it. I kind of cheated. Well, not kind of, I did. I drank alcohol. And alcohol isn’t exactly allowed on the 21 day sugar detox. Oopsies poopsies. Ok let’s talk about why I gave in.

Sergio leaves for Afghanistan in 2 weeks. He’s also an assh*le and said that if he dies, this would be the last time we drank together. It’s not funny, but his humor blows. Give him a break. I’m kidding, I love him. So when I showed up to the bar for Sergio’s ‘see you next year’ bash, he handed me 3 shots of Grey Goose. Yes, three. Yes, I took them. Yes, my stomach was a bit woozy. But the night went wonderfully. Like, OMG good. As soon as 4 shots hit my stomach, the music finally got better. Amazing. The DJ remixed ‘Call Me Maybe’ with ‘Feel So Close’. Yeah. It was awesome. And if you don’t know those two songs, google them then imagine them making love and having a child out of wedlock. Pretty awesome.

When I got home, I drunkenly ate carrot chips. So dedicated to paleo. I got jokes! Anywho, I thankfully don’t feel guilty about it. My friend is going to Afghanistan for 6 months, I wasn’t going to be a complete douche and not drink because I’m sugar detoxing. That’s just dumb to me. And you know what, I had the best night I’ve had in a looong time. Yes, I could have danced without alcohol ruining my liver and increasing my ass size, but then I would have noticed the people staring on with offended eyes. And that would have been just embarrassing.

I left the bar literally soaking in sweat. I could even ring out the sweat from my hair. That’s a good way to get the guys. Make yourself look like a wet poodle. I was a living poodle.

Disclaimer: Drinking is bad for you. And vodka isn’t paleo. Don’t be bad.

It’s funny how I hate sports but I love the Olympics.

I watched 4 movies this weekend. By myself. I need to find a man. Damn poodles.

Oh by the way, I swear this cake isn’t as dry as it looks. I swear!

    This was terrible. I’m on the 21dsd & it was not good no matter how bad off I am. I tried to like it. I wanted to love it. Sweetener won’t help. It’s that bad. Don’t try this at home.

    Made it with my 8yr old. It came out great! Love this!

  4. Jenna says:

    I wonder if I did something wrong but I thought this tasted awful and I was on day 15 of detox so its not like I needed supersweet. I think It really needed some sort of sweetener even if it was puréed green tipped banana or something.

  5. Estelle says:

    Same here. Had to throw this out. And it had the texture of a soufflé. What did I do wrong?

      i’m honestly not sure!

  6. Rebel says:

    I liked this, but might replace the whole egg with a flax egg next time? I found it just a tad bit eggy. I did add one packet of stevia for sweetness and skipped the whip. I think this would be really nice with a smear of coconut butter on top. 2:30 in the microwave and it was still moist, but fully set. I actually shared this and found half to be plenty filling.

  7. Carolyn says:

    Thanks again for your recipes Juli! I just ate this and it was great! Fortunately I’m not doing a sugar detox so I drizzled some honey on top and it really hit the spot! I’m thinking more pumpkin and less nutmeg on the next one…
