Goot evenink. I bought 2 exercise DVDs from work (Element Power Yoga and Denise Austin's Shrink Your Fat Zones Pilates - I know! Leave me alone!) that I want to watch and not actually do, so let's get down to business.
Breakfast was really delicious and fresh:
Fruit salad of a banana, kiwi, 1/2 a mango and some goji berries, topped with lemon juice, a little raw agave syrup AND powdered ginger, which was an amazing addition. Really freakin good. The mango wasn't quite ripe but it was fine with everything else. The one problem I have with lighter breakfasts like this is that after I take a vitamin, I get really sick. I got queasy and lightheaded on the train to work (NOT where you want to get sick.) Does anyone else notice anything like this? Luckily, it wears off pretty quickly.
I got hungry around 11 and ate an Amazing Grass bar. No, not that amazing grass, all ye 4/20 revelers. The kind that made me NOT be hungry anymore.
Lunch was more of the raw no-tuna topped with carrots, romaine, arugula, and tomato.
This filled me up pretty well, but that didn't stop me from eating a ton more figs on and off until I got home (with best intentions to exercise, really!).
For dinner, I'm finishing off Sarah Kramer's raw slaw, doctored up, and a salad of arugula, cucumber, raw leek, and tomato topped with nooch, balsamic vinegar, and cayenne pepper.
If yr gonna do the raw slaw, let me tell you - this version was way better than the original. I added about 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp curry powder, and maybe 1 TBs tahini. It was a nice combination of sweet (carrot, raisins, apple, sweet potato), salty, creamy (tahini), crunch, AND spice. Raw's got it all.
Now I'm gonna try to do some pilates. On this very full, happy stomach.
Tomorrow begins the liquid half of this detox! I'm excited and a little nervous. What liquids would you consider acceptable on a liquid detox?
