Cooking, Eating, and Enjoying Healthy Food!
Hate to be admitting this, but I could only do one day on this detox plan. I couldn’t stomach the shake. OMG. It was terrible! I’ve never been a fan of artificial sweeteners, and this shake has too much stevia in it. While stevia does not seem to be as bad for you as aspartame or other types of artificial sweeteners, it still has that awful aftertaste. Why did they have to sweeten this powder at all? I would’ve rather had no flavor at all and just used frozen berries to flavor it. I somehow managed to down the breakfast shake, but could only do half of the lunch shake. It was honestly making me gag. I still followed the other dietary restrictions and recommendations, but I just can’t get past the taste of the shake. I should also mention that I had a throbbing headache all day long. It was probably from the caffeine withdrawals, but I pretty much felt terrible the whole day. Some may say this is die-off or part of the detox process, but whatever. I’m not into it.
So, time to devise a new plan for the next two weeks (and try and return the cleanse stuff!) because I still want to clean up my diet. I think going a bit strict for two weeks will be good for me, but I can’t do the shake thing.
Here’s the new plan:
Good news is I have a house full of very healthy food, so it will be easy to start today. My dinners will be the same as planned, but I will have a protein and veggie rich breakfast and lunch. No more shakes for me!
