Season for Detox – Day 4

I’m going to start journaling the day each night instead of waiting until the next day.  I thought it might be good to get the full 24 hour experience but it will work to talk about the night before on the next day. 

Well, today we had to “spring forward” with the clock.  I really don’t enjoy daylight savings time when it seems to get dark before the day really gets going.  But it won’t last too long. I will need to adjust my exercise schedule to get out in the morning for a walk or exercise instead of waiting until the evening to exercise. 

Tiredness finally hit this morning.  I slept to almost 10 a.m.  That felt good.   Feeling tired can be a part of a detox. The body is working hard to shake off the toxins that embedded in the cells.  I can appreciate the process.  

I don’t think I’ve mentioned that each morning is started off with a large drink of warm water with lime.  I really enjoy limes and have been using them instead of lemons.  I also have a huge green smoothies which I love.  It’s like getting a shot of vitamins rushing through my veins. 

Glad I had some of the kale and avocado salad left over from yesterday for lunch.  We went shopping for vegetables in the afternoon so I have all I need for a while.  It’s surprising how many vegetables you can go through in a few days.  However, since I’m eating mostly raw and vegan, the food is digested very quickly.  Therefore, I get hungry quicker. 

The first days took me by surprise with that and I was really hungry.  I’m starting to  get into the swing of things already even after only four days.  I have carrots to crunch on as well as the nuts. 

Today I lucked out. A friend invited me to a raw-vegan pot-luck at her church this evening.  It was fabulous to taste some new dishes.  There was a mock salmon pate that even had me fooled for a minute.  Also a demonstration of a “sandwich” made by layering a spread with vegetables and sprouts on a large collard green leaf.  I’m anxious to try that one too. 

Recipes were available so I got a copy of everything.  The timing on this is perfect.  Ate a lot but so did everyone else.  Had half a banana after getting home and lots of water.   Looking forward to Day 5.


Eating raw, whole foods can quickly make a difference in your life and you don’t even have to go 100% raw to get the benefits. In fact, by simply replacing some cooked foods in your diet with more raw foods you can start feeling better very quickly
