Cleanse: Day 5

I woke up today not feeling too energetic. I'm wondering if it's because I didn't drink enough water yesterday. Today I'm going to lunch for my sister's birthday and going to dinner tonight with friends. What to do? I decided I better forego eating lunch but enjoy the company so I can enjoy eating at a restaurant tonight. Hey, it's only for one week, right? I can do this. Day five, here I come.

Day 5: Friday, January, 28, 2011

Berry Shake with Coconut Milk

2 cups coconut milk
2 cups raspberries and blueberries
1/4 avocado or coconut meat
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 to 2 teaspoons agave nectar
1/2 cup ice
Blend until smooth.

Notes: This isn't my favorite. Again drinking coconut milk is kind of hard to swallow (pun intended). The berry taste makes it tolerable but coconut milk is thick and has a pretty strong taste. I'm finding I definitely prefer the almond milk-based smoothies.

Mid-morning snack:
Handful of raw cashews

Grilled Shrimp with Arugula & Spaghetti Squash Salad
Ordered this at a restaurant. Tried to find the a dish that was ok with my cleanse.

Yesterday afternoon, I found out some crummy news so I unfortunately gave in and ate dinner at Chile's. I ordered a not so bad Carribbean salad but also enjoyed chips & salsa. Oh well. I'm going to keep going and move on!! It's alright not to be perfect all the time :).
