I actually missed posting my detox experience yesterday. Funny how you can almost forget what you ate in a very short period of time. What I do remember is that I decided to go back to the basics of the detox. I think I started using too many spices at once after being off of them for a week. Not that I blew the detox. Everything I ate was good for that; it was just a bit too much at once. For instance, I usually include in each meal onions, garlic and some ginger. All of these are great for the digestive system and for the detox. So yesterday (Day 12) I went simple. Back to basic vegetable salad with olive oil and squeezed lime dressing.
For dinner I did try something new. A mushroom, tomato and basil salad. Don’t know if you want to include mushrooms if you are concerned about candida. I’ll do some research on that and let you know. I also tried homemade potato chips. I really wanted to eat something with a crunch and bit of salt. I used the spiraling tool on a sweet potato and a white potato. This gave me “curly” fries. I coated them with olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper then baked them until crispy, about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. So these were not officially raw.
Both came out fairly well. Sweet potatoes have a bit more moisture than the white when baked. But both were good. The drier they baked the more crispy. So that helped with the craving for salt and crunch! Drank loads of water. Unfortunately, went out late to try to get to the gym but it was closed and it was cold outside. Caught a bit of a sniffle as a result – pooh!
