Clean DAY 2
If you are keeping up with my daily cleanse journal (God knows it is going to get boring for you. How many different ways can green smoothies look like?) you will remember that my first day I ate approximately the amount for 2 people. Fab. And I was still ready to eat my pinky toe by 7pm.
Today, I made the correct amount, but still managed to cheat a little.
For breakfast I had another Green Smoothie. I was running out the door so no new pictures, but, it essentially looked like yesterdays…
All good so far. No headaches, which I attribute to not being a coffee drinker. Then it was lunchtime. THANK THE LORD, because I was famished. Today I ate:
- Pan seared wild salmon with himalayan salt and pepper
- Sauted cabbage with coriander, turmeric (good detox spices) and a dash of salt
- Curried quinoa
I am brilliant for making a big batch of quinoa ahead of time. It keeps forever and is one less thing to make. Since fish and vegetables cook so quickly, it hasn’t been too much of a drag to make lunch. That being said, by the time it is done cooking I WANT TO SHOVE IT IN MY MOUTH AS FAST AS I CAN. Which means, you get mediocre photos. My detox brain tells me they are beautiful because it just wants to flippin’ eat the shiz.
This is when things get a little sketchy. Mid afternoon I need to start making dinner for the rest of the family. A dinner I will not be eating. Tonight it was chili (still working though my cow) and homemade cornbread. Chili is just one of those things that you HAVE to taste along the way to make sure you got it right. At first I took a bite and spit it out, but that didn’t last for long. I’m sure Junger would be disappointed, but I probably have a couple tablespoons of offensive chili disrupting my intestinal detoxing.
Then, starting about 4:00 (about 30 minutes after my kids got home – what a coincidence) the Dalai turned into the Devil. I now have the acute senses of Superman and any sound, smell, or touch sends me into orbit. I exude an obvious feeling of
hate disgust for my children – especially loud ones that want me to make them snacks I can’t eat. Jerks. Can’t they tell I’m fragile?
Oh, but don’t worry, because I had this filling meal coming my way:
