Cooking, Eating, and Enjoying Healthy Food!
I’m feeling pretty good on my final day of the 7-day detox. I did it! I drastically changed my diet and daily routine, even if only for 1 week. Now, I’m planning out how I will proceed going forward.
So, what changed in 7 days? Well, no more indigestion or acid reflux, no crazy sugar and junk food cravings since day 2, my sleep improved by at least 1 -1.5 hours each night. If this many things can change in 7 days, just think what could happen in 1 month or 6 months! That’s why I want to definitely continue with many aspects of the detox – green juice at least once a day, affirmations and visualizations will become a regular part of my day, and I will have a vegetable-centric diet. I’m going to stay off of grains and dairy for the time being, as well. And, I love the steam room and the epsom salt baths. One thing I’m looking forward to changing, however, is adding back in other sources of protein that are not plant-based.
I’m going to give the Whole 30 a try starting tomorrow. I’ll be doing it the entire month of November. Yes, even Thanksgiving. Why not? This is the best time of year to fix one’s diet. I’d love to hear any feedback about the Whole 30 if any of you have tried it!
ps – I didn’t create a log or post for day 6 (yesterday) because it was just so similar to day 5.
Woke up at 4:30 (not bad, for me), and did the 20 morning affirmations.
Green juice, of course. Chard, parsley, super greens, cucumber, celery, and a pear.
Breakfast menu: Green apple with sunbutter and cranberries, side of grapes and avocado. Bone broth.
Lunch menu: Another salad. Tons of fresh veg and fruit, and a dijon vinaigrette on top.
Did the day 7 visualization here, and dozed off with headphones on for at least 30 minutes.
Woke up, did my workout – cardio HIIT day – and made another green juice before dinner.
Dinner menu: Spaghetti squash with kale basil marinara, on a bed of sauteed super greens. Side of steamed broccoli.
I found this great marinara sauce at Whole Foods this morning…
Loved the ingredients! No added sugar and all organic. And, added kale! Tasted very good, as well.
Dessert was a banana-berry coconut smoothie. A nice treat.
After dinner, I ran to the gym to get my steam room sit in.
Ended the day with an epsom salt bath and visualizations and affirmations.
