Day 1: Spring Cleaning
First, I have to say I'm super pumped that several people are joining me on this cleansing project. It's so much better to do this kind of thing with a group to stay motivated. Thank you for your support and feel free to post specific questions as comments or email me so I can support you too :)
Today was easy. I enjoyed getting back into the kitchen with the intention to be totally creative with my cooking.
breakfast - burdock tea, hemp shake with maca
snack - pear
lunch - raw veggie salad with romaine lettuce, tomato and jerusalem artichoke; steamed broccoli, carrots, and burdock; and a small baked potato
snack - berries
dinner - sauteed garlicky kale, baked sweet potato with avocado and white onion
dessert - banana
I had more than enough food today and probably should have had another hemp shake or some other type of protein. Will do that tomorrow. I just got a bit overzealous with cooking up my Urban Organic produce!
I did crave one thing... I wanted a coffee this afternoon. Not because I needed energy but because I just like to sit and taste a cup of coffee. I got over that one real quick when I found a sunny spot in the park to sit and enjoy instead.
And I'm thinking spaghetti squash with tomato, basil and garlic for dinner tomorrow night. I'm pretty excited about it.
Oh, and these are the homemade aphrodisiac truffles that are sitting in my fridge, threatening to seduce me into totally losing self control. So far so good. I will conquer and devour (or not).
