This was a “wake-up call” type of day. I got too excited about trying new raw dishes that were too rich and delicious. Not that delicious isn’t allowed on a detox; but the contents of meals needs to stay simpler.
The Phad Thai was delicious and exciting to develop but it was too rich for the detox. I went to bed feeling like my digestive system was working too hard instead of being relaxed and calm. I will definitely need to work my way back to that level of eating.
So yesterday I was back to eating less complicated. It really is neat that eating raw can be simple, yet have the complexity desired with other types of meals too. I’m anxious to try dehydrating foods in a few weeks. But honestly, I’m pretty sure I’ll be heading towards vegan/vegetarian as the foundation instead of raw.
It really hit me this morning when it was so cold outside. I like warm weather and warm foods so drinking a cold green smoothie wasn’t something I looked forward too but the hot water with lime was great. I’m planning on soups for Day 12.
So for Day 11, I made another kale and tomato salad which I’m coming to love. I included raw almonds and bit of goat cheese for protein. Earlier I had a green salad. I still didn’t feel too hungry at the end of the day but quite satisfied. I can tell that weight is coming off but I haven’t been on a scale for a few weeks. Guess it might be time for that pretty soon.
