Here are a few recipes and remakes from the past week that I’ve been using.
While on vacation I ate all my meals out, and while I ate well, it was a lot of different foods.
So I decided to come home and give my digestive track a break.
I have a Memorial Party to attend, so will be breaking my clean eating then. (Insert taco dip here) ;))
For now, here’s a great sample of how easy it is to eat clean.
Day 1 was a bit hard, mainly because my family was continuing to eat normal, aka, my favorite foods. But they say that your will power only truly increases when you can turn away from goods that are right in front of you.
After all, why make everyone suffer? Lol
Day 2 was easier because I simply didn’t have any cravings. Day 3 I felt lighter (still not weighing myself though.)
I went to the gym and walked for a hour on the treadmill. It was hard getting back into a workout routine after taking such a long break. (Three Months)
Day 4 and on was good because my mind began to clear and any and all bloat seemed to cease.
I would like to start doing this detox one week out of each month.
I used strawberries instead of cranberries.
All three of these were very good. Again I used them as a guideline. I did t have raspberries so used strawberries. I didn’t have almond butter so through in a handful of almonds. One day I used peanut butter. It doesn’t need to be exact. Work with what you have in your own household already so you don’t break the bank.
This is the easiest smoothie to make. Also was the most filling. I’m guessing it was because of the chia seeds. I buy chia seeds in bulk at Sams Club.
This pineapple smoothie was very sweet! I didn’t use coconut water though. I used unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk.
This is a picture of Day 1’s breakfast.
Lunch (I had green tea with lemon on the side)
Dinner. Again having tea on the side.
This juice I made in my blend-Tec. I used everything except the cabbage. I also watered it down with unsweetened almond milk. I wanted to keep all the fiber, which is why I chose to blend it.
I love tomatos! So ate three a day.
Mid week I started to add a nice healthy salad with chick peas for lunch. Just olive oil and lemon for a dressing.
I thought this tea was going to be spicy,but it was not. We just extracted some honey from one of our bee hives the other day, somthe honey was just about the freshest and sweetest honey you could ever imagine.
I did add the lemon too.
I thought I would have went through coffee withdrawals, but I didn’t. These teas were amazing, and satisfying.
There is something nice about ending each evening with a cup of hot tea. It has been very satisfying and generally accompanies a Nicolas Sparks movie. 😉
~I am also taking daily vitamins, as always.
2 fish oils a day. (These are taken for my joints. Everything snap, crackles, and pops less when I take these)
2 red algae a day. (These are taken for skin, hair, and nails)
1 10,000 IUs coconut based of vitamin D3 a day. (Over all Heath)
As for medications, the only one I am currently on is my 90mg of Armor Thyroid.
It’s taken on an empty stomach first thing each morning.
~Any questions, please don’t hesitantly ask.
