Detox – Day 7 & 8

Well, Mother’s Day dinner went off with out a hitch. It was a vast array of living and non-living (does that mean dead?) foods.  Dave and I did partake in grilled mushrooms, while others dined on salmon and chicken.   We all ate brown basmati rice, salad and began the eating frenzy with corn & bean salsa and beet & carrot wraps. 

While they had chocolate cake for dessert, Dave and I sated our sweet tooth with figs and dates.  Hmm . . .  do we get bonus points for that feat of willpower???

And today . . . . (drumroll please) we begin trying to juice/raw soup for 2 meals a day, breakfast and dinner, and do a more substantial veggie lunch.  (Yikes!)

It went like this:


  • Orange/grapefruit/celery/apple juice (yummy!)
  • Handful of almonds
  • Chai Rooibus tea


  • Corn & bean salsa with avocado spread on a wrap – Dave
  • Left over beet & carrot wraps and watermelon
  • More Chai Rooibus ea


  • Broccoli & Brazil nut “soup” with celery, veggie stock and touch of almond milk – it actually wasn’t bad!

Dave has now lost  another 1.5 pounds. I’m still working on losing my mind!
