I don’t know about y’all but I had a WONDERFUL thanksgiving. It was very untraditional but still a great day. David and I both had to work all of last week except for Thursday so we decided to stay in Auburn for Thanksgiving day. We slept in until 9(which was wonderful) then I got up and cooked a Quiche with spinach, mushrooms, onions, and turkey bacon for me and David for breakfast. We also had mimosas..then we just laid around and watched to Macy’s parade. Sometimes it is so nice just to be lazy for a day and enjoy the meaning of the word rest. After spending the day lounging David and I headed over to one of my co-workers houses who was also in town for Thanksgiving dinner. So even though I enjoyed my Thanksgiving with friends and family. I spent most of Sunday feeling lethargic and tired. I had zero energy to do anything. I started thinking about my Thanksgiving and the HUGE football weekend that followed and realized I had eaten basically crap for the past 4 days. And while I enjoyed it and splurged I realized why I eat the way that I do on a day-to-day basis. I love to eat whole, healthy foods. They are what taste good and keep me fueled for everything I have going on in my busy life. And since I have veered a little of course in the last month I decided a 7-day detox was exactly what I needed to jump start my return to healthy lifestyle. So here goes…
Day 1 Detox:
My morning started off with a 16oz glass of water with lemon juice. Then I made a green smoothie to take to class with me for breakfast.
- frozen banana
- frozen strawberries, mango, and pineapple
- handful baby spinach
- handful baby kale
- 5 drops stevia
- 1tbsp chia seed
- a few ice cubes
blend it all up and enjoy..if detoxing tastes this delicious it shouldn’t be to bad
My guidelines for this detox are pretty simple. NO meat, NO dairy, NO sugar, NO caffeine, and NO wheat. I’m trying to focus on high fruit and vegetable intake( most of which will be raw) and keeping away from processed foods.I’ll keep you guys updated on what I eat this week and how I’m feeling. I’ve never done a true detox so I’m curious to see how my experience goes…Hope your all having a happy Monday!
