Cleanse: Day 6

So, I'm almost to a week. The question is do I keep going for another week or stop Monday morning. Considering how I feel, and the transformation it's made on my relationship with food, I'm going to opt for a second week. The ulitmate goal is to reach three weeks, but I want to be realistic with myself.

I had an upset last night, but I'm going to forgive myself and move on. A patient of Dr. Junger's asked if his eating forbidden food the night before completely ruined the cleanse. Dr. Junger's response was no. Simply move on and continue your cleanse the next day. So that is what I'll do.

I also discovered the reason as to why I was not enjoying the Berry Smoothie with Coconut Milk. I was using cooking coconut milk, not the coconut milk you can buy meant to replace milk. So note to self--coconut cooking milk not meant to be drank!!

Energy Smoothie with Almond Butter and Cardamom
This is obviously one of my favorites

Warm Salmon and Asparagus Salad with Pesto

I realize I've eaten a lot of salmon. It's just so easy to cook! I probably need to switch it up and eat more vegetarian meals for lunch.

You are amazing to keep going! But Im all for it, because I love reading your progress, and how you are feeling! Keep up the good work!

Okay Ashley, I just made that almond butter/cardamom shake. Since it is one of your favorites I was expecting it to be good. Cardamom is strong stuff. It wasn't my favorite. :) But I'm trying the blueberry/cacao one next.

He he. Sorry Seas. Yeah the blueberry/cacao is really good. And if you substitute the blueberries with strawberries it's even better.
