The first full week of the detox has been completed. This is becoming an enjoyable experience. What I feel after one week is less brain fog. It’s good to feel that I can remember things better, all by letting my body get cleansed. I don’t miss meats yet. I’ve been enjoying learning to combine new produce together. What’s interesting is that I often feel stuck about what to fix to eat yet I’m only faced with fruits and vegetables.
Something I learned from Alissa Cohen is that it’s important to have a lot of food prepared when you first start eating fresh and raw foods because you will be hungry quickly. I didn’t do that so hunger creeps up on me. The good thing is that it is easy to put a meal together with raw foods. But better planning will make it better. I think I’ll follow Alissa Cohen’s week of foods for week two.
Well for day 7 I created a raw green soup with avocado, spinach, tomato and few other ingredients. Again, very fresh, and comforting. With that I sauteed some Swiss chard with onions, garlic and a splash of rice vinegar, so I wasn’t totally raw today. That was for dinner. For lunch I ate some left-overs from yesterday; cabbage with corn and carrots along with a little bit of the sweet potato fries.
I’m really tired tonight. I stayed up very late watching the election returns last night then got up exceptionally early with the idea of getting a nap in the afternoon. Of course, that never happened. I’m trying to set up my own detox program to offer but will finish that up tomorrow.
