I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Mine is just flying by. I realized today that I have only 20 days left of school! So excited, but not for the finals...yuck!
Some of you may remember that I had bought the book "Clean" by Dr. Alejandro Junger and that I went on to buy the clean kit. I was planning to start the 21 day total detox after my half marathon. Well, I started yesterday. The basis of the program is to have two shakes a day, one for breakfast and one for dinner and eat one meal at lunchtime. There is a simple list of foods to include and exclude and pretty much has you eating a very clean diet. The kit includes the supplements that Dr. Junger recommends.
Yesterday I made a shake with the Tropical flavored powder and added a mango. It was pretty good. For lunch I had a salad and later snacked on some raw almonds. The dinner shake was the chocolate orange flavor and I added cherries.
I have to say that I do have a bit of a headache today, I'm sure it is from not having coffee in the morning, which I have replaced with green tea. Lunch today was some quinoa with cauliflower, asparagus, beets and some Raw Coconut Curry Soup, which is a Cafe Gratitude recipe that I love and have made several times.
Through this cleanse I am hoping to feel lighter, have more energy, clearer skin and to reduce my cravings for starch and sugar. I will keep you posted on my progress. If you have not read "Clean" I recommend it, it is a great book. You can do the program without buying the kit as well.
One quick thing before I go... after I received the kit in the mail one if the "wellness coaches" from Dr. Junger's company called me to see if I had any questions about the program or needed any support. Pretty amazing... when was the last time you got service like that...never!
Hope you have a great day! :)
