Detox. Day Uno.
So. Let’s talk about what I’ve been eating lately.
It’s been looking a little like this:
and less like this:
which left me feeling like this:
So I’ve decided to do a seven-day detox of sorts. My body has been all out of whack for a little while, and I want to get to the root of the problem. There is very clearly something that is causing me distress. I have a good feeling it’s caffeine and something in Sabra hummus (tear!), but I want some more solid proof.
For the next seven days I will be abstaining from caffeine, dairy, gluten, soy, beans, and most added sugar and salt. What does that leave me to eat? A multitude of things!
Breakfast today was a banana and a brown rice cake topped with peanut butter.
Mid-morning snack was a Larabar + delicious detox tea. I’m not a huge fan of tea in general, but this one tastes sort of like chai. I’m not really sure if ‘purifies my liver’ as it claims, but it sure is tasty!
Lunch was a hugh jass salad: spinach + mushrooms + carrots + sprouts + tomatoes + Angela’s cheezy sauce.
Afternoon snack was half a honeydew and two dates. Dates = candy.
Dinner consisted of roasted sweet potato, rainbow chard roll ups packed with millet, nutritional yeast and pepper plus cherry tomatoes on the side.
I didn’t feel hungry or deprived at all during the day, which is good because that’s not what I’m going for at all. I’m cleaning up my eating and will slowly be adding the above off limits back in, after seven days of clean eats. Hopefully I can get to the root of the problem and health-ify myself on the way.
One day down, six to go!
