Holy balls Batman. I had a cart load of stuff and only went down three aisles. That would be the produce aisle, the spice aisle and the frozen veggie/fruit section. I put things into my cart that I never even looked at or heard. (Delicata squash anyone?) I called Hammond on the way home and told him I was stopping at the grocery store, that he better have one hell of a "last supper with wine" waiting on me when I got home. Over an hour later I get a phone call, "Where are you?" to which I replied "Um....still at the grocery store, what the hell is cardamom??"
That same night I made beet soup, butternut squash soup with apples, and fruit/nut balls (my "snack"-YUMMMMM) Needless to say this HOKIE was exhausted. Seriously, I fell on my knees next to Chad on the couch and told him how much I loved him and thanked him for always making my dinner EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. for the last 10 years. I think he was thinking I'd thank him in other ways that night, but again-I was pooped. Sorry babe!
Breakfast-fruit smoothie with apple juice and water. Not bad, the frozen fruits had too many seeds, so that was a little gross. I'll adjust the next smoothie with maybe just strawberries and no blackberries. Those seeds hurt!
Hope and I both made the butternut squash soup from the same recipe for lunch, but we learned when you make soup and forget a few of the key ingredients (not mentioning names here
I was fine until about two pm. I wanted bad food in the worst way. Case in point-I don't really eat beef and anytime anyone has a burger for lunch, I think "YUCK" well damn if I didn't want to steal my girlfriend's hamburger and sneak into the pastry kitchen and scarf some cookies into my pie hole. This detox is 90% mind f**king-you have to get past that and then it isn't so bad.
For dinner I was supposed to do the beet soup, but I was so over all the liquids I wanted to gag at the sight of the soup. I ended up eating a cucumber and an apple.
Day two has gone MUCH better. Smoothie for b'fast, some mixed nuts as a snack, avocado with cilantro and garlic for lunch, and yummo cauliflower and roasted red peppers for dinner. (I still am craving a dessert-and an apple ain't it)
So far I have clogged the sink two times in which Chad has annoyingly asked me wtf I put down the disposal. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but pretty sure we'll need a plumber at some point in this detox. Chaching, chaching, chaching.
Here are some of the pictures from Days 1 & 2 so far. Enjoy!
