I’ve been doing a bit of a cleanse since I overdosed on sugar during Halloween. My goal is to have 60% of my plate veggies with the rest split between adequate protein, carbs, and good fats. I’m also limiting dessert to the occasional square of dark chocolate/piece of fruit for the next week and then I’ll renegotiate. I usually eat a lot of veggies, but I also get in ruts where I eat a lot of sweets too…
So far the day looks like this:
Before I ate the scramble I drank 12-16 ounces of water.
Then I downed a zucchini, onion, and green bell pepper scramble topped with Herbamare, nutritional yeast, black pepper, and the new love of my life…goat cheese. Usually dairy is something to avoid when cleansing, but goat cheese is very mild on the system so I decided to go for it this morning. Really good. Print this recipe.
For lunch I had leftovers from my Peruvian Quinoa Soup with some fresh avocado (a bacon avocado that can be eaten with the skin on…the farmer’s market lady told me this, hopefully she’s right).
So far so good. I’ve also been drinking coconut water kefir and find that works wonders for digestion. Meal planning and chopping veggies ahead of time has been essential for me, so that it’s easier to throw some veggies in a pan and cook it up if I’m in a hurry.
It’s helped to have my little Family Farm Fresh basket delivering fresh produce to the door. PML thinks its really fun too, even though he looks rather bewildered in this photo.
Time to clean the house…oh joy!
Question: What do you do to cleanse? How often?
