Yesterday I was feeling hungry but not wanting to actually make something, so I headed over to a vegan bakery and cafe called Wildflour Bakery. It’s located on the Pawtucket/Providence line near Blackstone Boulevard.
I ordered 2 juices, one for lunch and the other for Saturday’s breakfast since I was supposed to be out for the day. Lunch was the Alkalizer with plenty of ginger for some zip and I enjoyed it.
Kermit the Green Juice
This morning’s treat was this very very green Kermit juice. No fruit at all and very, hmmm, what’s a good word? Green and grassy! Not as tasty as I would have liked but healthy for sure with kale, spinach, celery, cucumber and can’t remember what else. I got it down but will not order that one again.
Will try a smoothie next time.
Clean is going well and released another pound or so, for a grand total so far of 3.3 pounds. I’m not starving, and even though I have to think a bit more about what I should be eating, my body is liking it so far.
I have finished the recommended minimum amount of days for the elimination diet and ready to start this 21 days of being Clean. I hope to release plenty of toxins from my body and of course, would love to shed a few pounds too! My goal is 15 pounds.
During the elimination phase I have already shed 2 pounds. Not weighing myself every day, but probably every 2-3 days to see if I am getting progress. Of course I will also gauge from the way my clothes fit.
Tonight was a challenge for me since I went out for dinner to one of my favorite Asian restaurants, Apsara. But I kept it on the program by ordering Nime Chow with shrimp and then Stir Fried Lort (rice) noodles with seafood. Rice is allowed on the program, but not wheat.
Weighing in again tomorrow and will see where I’m at!
Today was my first day of a completely caffeine-free day and still doing fine, so far. I am sipping some Coconut Oolong tea sweetened with liquid stevia.
Had a protein Greenberry Shakeology shake for breakfast made with almond milk and also had a Chocolate Shakeology shake for dinner, along with a tablespoon of almond butter. Usually add peanut butter, but due to fungus on peanuts (per Dr. Junger and the Clean book) they are not in the program. I will miss my peanut butter.
Lunch was my main meal and I ate Indian food at Rasoi, on Hope Street in Pawtucket, RI. Delicious! I had Shrimp Saag and a little rice, although I remembered after no white rice, so will keep that in mind. I passed on the garlic naan and still felt I ate plenty to fill me without feeling stuffed.
Another day or so of easing in and then I will start the plan in full force.
I have decided to experiment with myself to find if any specific foods are bothering my digestive system, I am experiencing allergies for the first time in my life and starting thinking it may be a food I am eating.
I found Clean by Dr. Alejandro Junger and will begin the Elimination Diet part of the program for 3-4 days beginning tomorrow. Then I will do the 21 Days of Clean to, well, clean out my system and detox.
Then when I begin adding foods back in I will hopefully find the annoying culprit and eliminate that particular food from my everyday diet. And the jump start with weight loss will also be a plus.
I will be posting every day for the full 21 days once I begin them on Friday. Easing into the plan for the first few days. Off to the grocery store for some good clean food!
