Yesterday on The Cleanse was definitely the best for the both of us: lots of energy, good moods and pizzazz. However, I’m not going to lie that yesterday was also the day cravings starting kicking in. Pizza! Coffee! Cheese! Bread! More cheese! Fortunately, I held tight, drank more water, ate more cleansing foods and all was good.
Some people say, “I could never do a cleanse!” “You can’t eat anything!” ” I would die!”
My recommendation? While it can be difficult because your body isn’t used to eating this way, try to think of the things you can eat. Like super creamy, decadent avocados, greens that give you energy and life, fresh juicy fruit, high quality olive oil, endless herbs, and delicious homemade soups. When you think of the things you can do, then it doesn’t seem that bad now does it?
What we ate:
Breakfast: Super Lean Green Berry Breakfast Smoothie
Snack: Handful raw cashwes
Lunch: Mixed greens, collards, spinach, tomato, avocado, cucumber, hummus, olive oil, balsamic, and lemon juice
Snack: 1/2 banana + carrots and hummus
Dinner: Vegetarian Split Pea Soup from Whole Foods + mixed sauteed veggies including yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli rabe and collards

Snack: fresh watermelon (mmm!)
Note: My sister and I concluded that we’re most likely going to stop the cleanse at lunchtime but still eat rather healthy today. Then tonight we’re having a homemade whole wheat veggie pizza party with friends 🙂 Hey, it’s Friday after all!
Happy Friday ladies…have a wonderful weekend!
