It's about that time.
Time to start the big D
Not a diet. The other D.
Luckily, as a vegan, the hard part is over.
Since the last time I blogged, I bought and read Kris Carr's CSD.
She is cool. And fun. And I recommend it.
I had heard a review about the 21-day cleanse and figured it was doable.
So I guess it isn't really a detox, but a cleanse.
Is there a difference?
I made a zillion notes, menus and a produce heavy grocery/farmer's market list
Things I will focus on:
NO coffee (I will cry myself to sleep everyday I go without coffee)
NO refined sugars (People still eat those?)
NO processed carbs (My body screams when I eat fake things anyways)
NO gluten (Yikes! I love me some wheat)
YES: green drinks every morning and loads of salads
You also pick a ratio, I'll be attempting 80/20: 80% raw/alkaline foods and 20% cooked foods (like brown rice, sweet potatoes, or higher glycemic fruits like dates or bananas)
Prob no more of this while calculating tube feedings-
soy yogurt with pecans and raisins
No more Saturday/Sunday morning oats with cooked apples and almond butter
Tons of these
Smoothie with 1 banana, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 Tb fresh mint, 1/2 scoop Sunwarrior vanilla protein, 1Tb ground flax, 1 kale leaf, 1/2 cup coconut water, 1 cup almond milk and 1 date for extra sweetness.
The only thing that will change is that instead of all that fruit, I
have to should use veggies.
One last hoorah
1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch of salt, 1Tb chia, large splash of almond milk, 2 Tb raisins
Topped with fresh blueberries, sucanat, more almond milk and walnuts
See you in 21 days oats.
I am still running. A little
Hamstring is still being a butthole, so the days off have increased and the mileage has decreased.
Oh, and I have a race tomorrow.
Just a half marathon.
That I'd like to PR at.
I shouldn't have said anything.
Did I just jinx myself?
