Detoxing

This week we are detoxing in the Eat Clean workshop. This means we are going caffeine free, dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, and refined carb free this week. Of course, absolutely no processed food. It’s only for five days, so that thought is helping give me give my 100% to the program.

Workout for the day included 2 miles of walk/jog and some strength training. Today’s menu was:  

Breakfast – one big pesarat dosai with peanuts chutney

Morning snack – one tablespoon of chia seeds with 12 oz of water

Lunch – 16 oz of green smoothie – spinach, kale, mango, cucumber, berries blended with ginger, turmeric, salt, pepper, machur and water. Also, threw in a few almonds.

Snack – brown chickpeas with onion and tomato, one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water, decaf green tea

Dinner – hearty brown rice, moong dhal kichidi

What were my learnings? Chia seeds, flax seeds and walnuts are the only source of omega for vegetarians. Apple Cider Vinegar is a miracle drink that does wonders to your digestive system. Vegetables can be fermented and are excellent sources of probiotic. This quote had me nodding away – “What does not challenge you will not change you”

How did I feel – green smoothie kept me full only for a couple of hours. Glad I had a bigger snack. Did not crave for any particular food but have been having mild headache since tea time, which is fully expected.
