[in this case it’s actually blending.]
have you ever tried it?
D is on this 7 day detox and i’m thinking about maybe doing a 3 day one. we consume a lot of junk, and sometimes it is nice to give your body a break with a healthy alternative…
just thinking about going on a liquid diet for any period of time makes me realize how much i love bread & cheese. i mean hello broccoli cheese soup in a bread bowl? grilled cheese? crusty bread with a nice fancy cheese (and a glass of wine)? cheese fondue? string cheese and crackers? bagels and cream cheese??? heavy sigh. this will be an interesting weekend for sure. a definite test of my willpower.
he’s already gone one day, and i’m proud of him. passing any food restaurant conjures in his mind his favorite dish at said place, and even opening the fridge or cabinets at home is a reminder of all the foods that are within reach but off the list for the next week. me and baby girl are eating food too, so he can smell all the yummies that he has promised himself he will stay away from.
i know since i have been working on this current project at work i have definitely stepped my junk food intake a notch. they keep snacks in eye-view so we are comfortable. they know food makes people happy and are committed to making us so, in the hopes that it will make us super productive… but i haven’t been in the gym as much as i was –so i’m upping my food intake and not balancing it by going to the gym –maybe this detox will be good for me.
i made a juice this morning for breakfast, as like a mini trial.
here’s one of D’s lunches: (Its called Mean Green)
it’s made from:
1 Granny Smith Apple
4 Stalks of Celery
4-6 Kale Leaves
1/4 Lemon Peeled
ahhhh pray for my strength as i overcome my love for food this weekend !
