End of day 2 - This is hard

I think I'm going through sugar withdraw, headache, sluggish, the feeling of "I would kill someone for a piece of candy or milk chocolate right now". That's normal right? Finding time to do all the food prep is challenging right now. I did cook some quinoa this morning and made a big bowl of quinoa salad. That's my go to lunch as it's quick and easy. To make it I used:

2 cups cooked Quinoa
1 can chick peas
1 English cucumber, quartered and chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
3 kale leaves, stem removed and chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
sea salt

It makes a huge bowl and keeps in the fridge for several days.

My biggest struggles so far after 2 whole days:

Beverages: water, or lemon or lime water, just ain't cutting it. It's fine for during the day at work as it's all I drank anyways, but I find it very challenging in the evening, I need a good iced tea recipe or sparkling beverage of some kind.

Time: Food prep is time consuming, need  more quick grab on the go ideas.

Coffee: I can't drink it black, I need an alternative! Suggestions welcomed

F-word:  Fitness, still  trying to find time and energy.

Sleep Time :)
