I have some catching up to do!

I have tried for the last few days to write and post a blog, but for some reason I couldn't access that part of Sparkpeople. Today I got right in when I clicked "Add A Blog Entry". :D

Cherry beet detox smoothie from Whole Life Nutrition cookbook and blog

A nice change of pace after all the gacky green smoothies I've been drinking for a week.

Anyway, I owe my blogging friends some updates. I didn't log my food over Saturday and Sunday, but here are my numbers from Monday and Tuesday, days 8 and 9.

Totals from Day 8

FAT 26g
CARBS 277g
SODIUM 285mg

Totals from Day 9

FAT 39g
CARBS 242g
SODIUM 1424g (snacked on something I shouldn't have)

So far today I've had the smoothie, but I have a gorgeous kale salad I'm going to dive into soon.

My bowels are moving thanks to more water and more yams! I'm exercising again and that feels great.

This detox is the best gift! I have so much energy, happiness and good feelings!

    Wow! That berry smoothie looks wonderful. And, the salad too! I do hope you aren't going to skip too many green smoothie days. LOL

    That beet drink looks really curious. I'll have to look up the recipe on their site. I got a load of beets with the intention of making beet chips. I've never made them before, have you? I once had some store-bought beet chips and they were astounding. Maybe when you've completed this structured elimination diet, perhaps they are something you might want to make. I LOVE the raw kale and beet salad you turned me on to. I have no kale this week and feel bereft. I do have lots of collards and chard but it just isn't the same. I'm so glad you can have solid food once again. Chewing is delightful....
