Detox Day 7 - Woo Hoo 1 week down

Friday, January 04, 2013

This has been a great week to really think about what I am eating and how I am eating. With this detox program, I realized that even though I was eating about 3 vegetable and 3 fruits a day, it wasn't near enough. Nor was there a big selection of vegetables as I would stick to the same ones. I have ventured out and tried some that I didn't think I would like and don't normally buy. One of these is kale which is great roasted in the oven until crisp with a little olive oil. Another one is cauliflower and just finding spices that match that one has made all the difference.

Experimenting with spices is another thing that I haven't done much of in the past. Now I am broadening out (not in girth) but in choices of the many delectable spices. Try cumin on grilled chicken or dill on eggs. Cilantro has been and excellent addition to some of the "green" drinks I have tried.

Here is one of my favorites:
Sweet Pea Green Drink
1/2 sweet pea pods
1 apple
1/2 orange
fresh cilantro to taste
stevia powder - a dash or two
a little water to blend

It is yummy and very good for you! I am branching out and enjoying the clean eating. Sinus problems have lessened, lost four pounds, feel much more energy, and my arthritis symptoms seem lessened as well. Looking forward to another week where I can add back dairy and sprouted grain bread. I am not going back to eating dairy, however, as I think this is the contributor to my sinuses over time. And I am continuing to be gluten free, too. Challenges ahead, but my attitude is excellent! emoticon

It sounds like you have a good attitude and that is so important. How is hubby doing? Does he have the same drive?

Best wishes
