This weekend I did a three day detox. I wanted to let my body get rid of all the bad stuff, flush away all those chemicals and toxins (and God knows what else) from processed foods that I’ve been eating for so long! today has been my last day and I am happy with the results. I wasn’t sure if I would notice any difference but this morning I looked at myself in the mirror and what do you know, a flat belly!! or at least flatter! Even my husband noticed it without me saying anything! It was worth it and now I am motivated to keep eating healthy, real, delicious food. Here’s what I did:
Day 1: Ate a vegetarian diet, no animal products, I had a green juice for breakfast that included broccoli, kale, green apples, cucumber, celery and some carrots, I also added some flax seeds and chia seeds. I had a snack of walnuts, cranberries and some granola. For lunch I made an orange, raspberry and walnut salad and finally I had a carrot and potato curry rice bowl for dinner and a raspberry herbal tea right before bed. I drank twice as much water as I normally do.
Day 2: For breakfast I had a juice that included beet, celery, pineapple, oranges and carrots I also added flax seeds and chia seeds. I snacked on an apple and then I had grilled chicken with potatoes, carrots and a green salad for lunch. I had a snack of walnuts and dried cranberries, a fruit salad for dinner and a raspberry herbal tea before bed. I drank twice as much water during the day as I normally do.
Day 3: I had granola with almond milk and half a banana for breakfast. For lunch I had grilled chicken and a green salad, later I had a chocolate all natural LARa Bar and a green apple. For dinner home made chicken nuggets, a baked potato and some watermelon. I’ll drink a herbal tea before bed and if I get hungry I’ll have a banana. I drank a lot of water, not as much as the first couple of days to be honest, but I’m trying to catch up now.
To keep me motivated I ran outside, I went to this really cute park by my apartment and spent some time with myself, walking, listening to my favorite tunes, praying and just taking some time to look around and see how much beauty there is! I enjoyed it so much that I might make it my Saturday morning tradition. I also took a walk at night with my husband and enjoyed his company so much. I was relaxed and felt great during this detox. I would definitely recommend!
