I am a fan of the Lemonade Detox which I do 2 times a year. Although it is not time for my normal detox, I have been feeling sluggish, and just out of sorts. I could probably attribute it to all of the excess food I have been consuming because of the football season and tailgating, it could be stress from work, it could be lack of sleep... But all I know is I want the feeling gone.
I decided to switch up my normal detox regimen. Instead of going straight to my normal one week lemonade detox I decided I am doing am going for a two week detox, which starts with clean eating for the first 3 days then slowly working in my lemonade detox and finish of week two that way.
Using a book Brian bought me a few years back, I worked on our first 3 days of eating.
Great book if you want the art of detoxing broken down for you.
I made most of our menu for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday using the books sample menus and recipes. (which I of course will alter a bit for my liking).
Clean eating and detoxing means cutting out dairy, wheat, fats, alcohol, caffeine, and reducing the consumption of complex carbs.
During this process I will still exercise and I will eat only what I have written down and nothing else.
So armed with my coupon notebook, and a recent score from living social for $20 worth of groceries for only $10 I headed to whole foods.
Brian and I had a great trip to Whole Foods (I love it there). I even saved some money. We ended up getting $112 worth of groceries for $88. I call SCORE!!!!
I will blog about the process of detoxing for the next 2 weeks and hopefully I will be able to blog about my success in making it all 14 days!!!
Ciao, and detox ready
