Yesterday I began my journey of a 10-day detox. After a couple weeks of extra snacks, one too many cookies before bed and an indulgent holiday weekend with family, it’s time. My body deserves a break. My liver does so much for my body, it’s time to give it the care it deserves. It’s time to cleanse and rejuvenate before the bulk of the holiday season. This isn’t a diet; I don’t even intend to lose weight; my only goal is body purity and mental clarity.
For ten days, I will be eliminating:
• Sugar (natural and artificial)
In favor of focusing on whole foods, filling up on fresh organic fruits and vegetables, plant proteins, nothing fake, unnatural or processed.
I’m sure it won’t be easy, but my body and mind will thank me.
Detox Day 1:
7:30 a.m. Awake; meditate a few minutes. Drink water with lemon.
8:00 a.m. Steel cut oats with unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon and almond butter , detox tea
12:00 p.m. Steamed kale with tahini; roasted kabocha squash
2:00 p.m. Easy 30-minute run; hot shower
3:00 p.m. Apple
6:00 p.m. Cajun spiced black beans and brown rice
9:00 p.m. Detox tea with almond milk and honey
Are any of you planning on doing a pre-holiday detox?
