a lot of people ask me what I eat when cleansing. I ask myself the SAME question, believe me.
Happily, cleansing is OVER, but I made some foolish choices to eat a few too many ‘non clease’ frlendly foods last night. How could I resist – friends gathering for a potluck. It was all amazing, but the tummy ain’t so happy. Oh well, it was worth every bite! – Just goes to show me how much my body acclimates to cleanse foods.
SO, if you want to see some visual of cleanse friendly groceries, check this out:
If you want to see what is in store for me next, her is my goal:
3 veggies/day at least 1 dark green
2-3 fruits, no bananas, grapes, cherries, pineapple (unless special occasions) – mostly apples of all varieties, citrus, berries, mango, kiwi
Protein at every meal: beans, meats except pork (red meat 2x/month MAX), and lots of fish/eggs; also rice protein drinks when desired/needed
FATS: everything healthy except butter because I just don’t digest it well, especially in large doses….and who really needs butter in large doses
quinoa or rice or sprouted grain/spelt grains. NO BREADS, MUFFINS, BAKED GOODS, as they are too refiend.
Wasa bread, only if its the wheat-free variety
high quality yogurt (plain)
Rice milk hot chocolate
What I am NOT doing:
dairy, HFCS, refined sugars or items with sugars in the first 5 ingredients, nuts (except when they are a condiment or mixed in at low volumes), wheat. If I can do that for the long term, I’m GOLDEN!!
I’d also like to emphasize no eating past 8pm and I really want to abstain from chocolate because it really just makes me kind of nutty – even the good stuff.
