Day one of my blenderless life went pretty well. I thank you all who emailed me with your words of understanding. And I thank the rest of you who think I've got a few screws loose for keeping it to yourself.
So today is my 4th day of Spring Cleansing and it's moving to a new level. The first few days were full of little slips of this and that, BAD caffeine headaches and lots of grumpiness. Last night I went to sleep at 9pm and when I woke up refreshed, I knew I was ready to take it up a notch.
First I oil pulled. Then I drank a glass of lemon water.
Dry skin brushing before the shower and then to work.
Breakfast was a super sweet sesame shake made in the food processor. It doesn't get as smooth with the FP, but it worked OK.
Sesame Vanilla Shake
1 frozen banana
2 T tahina
1 cup water
1/2 cup oat milk
1 tsp vanilla
Mid-client snack was a Green Juice
1 bunch parsley
4 stalks celery
When work was done, I went for a jog. The weather is glorious lately. The heat and sand are gone and now it's just perfect. LOVE
Lunch was scrambled tofu leftovers topped with Alissa Cohen's Raw Marinara:
Although it tasted fine, it left me with a bit of an upset tummy. Alissa's recipes have never sat right with me. Christy, Mickie and Jenn will all know what I'm talking about because we did a 30-day Raw Detox on Alissa's site a few years ago and they'll remember me whining about those recipes! Firstly, who can eat raw onions and garlic? I mean, it tastes good, but not for long, if ya know what I mean.
Anyway, the afternoon was spent Spring cleaning the disasters that my kids call their rooms. Lots of tea and a few Peanut Butter Oat Balls got me through that challenge.
Dinner was a simple Potato Leek Soup, soothing, satisfying and easy to digest.
Tonight will be another early night in bed with Anna Karenina, hubba hubba.
