I’m exhausted! Really, really tired. Either my body is working hard getting rid of toxins or I’m coming down – hard – from a 48-year sugar high.
- Apple/cucumber/mint/ginger juice (yummy!)
- Chai tea (don’t really like it but getting used to it)
- Salad at Dean & Deluca (all greens & veggies with just a drop of olive oil)
Mid-afternoon snack (I was starving and cranky, so I figured some fruit was in order):
- Fresh mango
- Grilled asparagus
- Grilled leeks
- Left over avocado sauce (from dinner last night) with celery
We were dying for something sweet after dinner, so we dove into a few figs and dates. (Who would have thought that those would have been considered dessert a week ago??!)
Tomorrow, we have decided to start the day juicing just fruit as a treat. We both need a pick-me-up, eating something we know we will enjoy. This has been less difficult for me (pescatarian), but Dave (committed carnivore) has been hanging in there even though it’s really a huge change for him!
It appears that we’ve settled into a living foods type of approach. Our second week is supposed to be just juice and raw soups. Hmmmm . . . we will cross that bridge when we get to it – and after another few visits to the grocery stores!
