This is normal, detox/cleanse/diet procedure for me. Day three sucks. And it sucks bad. Even a TV ad will make me run down the street waving my money yelling “buy all the pizza!!!!!”. Its so very glamorous. My friend sent me an assignment she is doing, where she grows listeria on cheese. All wanted after that was cheese, poisonous and bacteria infested, or not.
Today was absolutely no different. After staying up a fair bit later than I had planned last night for very important study time* (what, I had a double episode of Downton to catch up on!!) I was slightly wrecked all day, and being day three did not help me out one little bit. By day three I am a cranky, tired, salted-chip craving monster, and is ALWAYS the day I cave. ALWAYS.
SO considering what I had to work with today, I didn’t really do too badly. Some things worked out really well! I found a new favourite juice to add to the list, I only ate like, 4 chicken flavoured crackers (4!!! And it was a brand new box and everything!! Good job me!!) and my ‘dinner invention’, whilst not being on my menu, did include all of the ingredients from one of the meals I was supposed to eat, with a couple of extras thrown in.
So food today:
Lemon water and a berry smoothie. I was suppose to have a green smoothie, but *gag* I hate those things. So I made my go to favourite, from blueberries, raspberries, coconut water, oat milk and chia seeds.
Mmmmmmm yum 😀
Next was morning tea. Check out the colour of that, that’s not enhanced in any way, that’s just bright green goodness in a jar. Its called Green Lemonade, and consists of kale, spinach, lemon, apple, cucumber and celery. One of the best juices ever, I don’t love sweet stuff so this one is great for when I really don’t want a sweet juice 🙂
Oh!!! And notice I got new stainless steel drinking straws!! They are super cool, I picked these up at the health food shop here for $9.95 for two plus a cleaning brush, odd how excited I am feeling about some new drinking straws right now 😀
And…. I’m just noticing I don’t have a photo of my lunch. I don’t actually think I HAD any lunch. I had my juice right on lunch time, then I had the second one, and nothing in between. Hmmmmm.
And then we come to dinner. It was supposed to be pumpkin with mushrooms and onions and garlic, but instead I might have made this:
So this is: Pumpkin, broccoli, mushrooms, coriander, laksa paste, low fat coconut milk, water and dried shallots. Not TOOOO bad…. Right? Its all still plant based, and thats what I’m standing by tonight. It could have been worse, everyone else ate sausages. I was *this close*!!!!!! Stupid day 3!!!!!
SO that was my day, I am supposed to study tonight but am wrecked. Hoping tomorrow will be a better day.
