The Last of the Cleanse: Day 4 Recap

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, thenย 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

Day 5 (Last Day!) :

Breakfast: Green Smoothie with avocado, collard greens, kale, spinach, celery, blueberries, cherries, blackberries, almond milk, maca powder, and flax seed

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Hey, it’s Friday after all!

Happy Friday ladies…have a wonderful weekend!

    I’m curious to seek out out what blog system you happen to be utilizing? I am experiencing some small safety issues with my newest internetsite and I want to discover something more safe. Do you’ve got any recommendations?

    However, today’s gaming consoles are now much better as it now lets you play with other
    people at the same time. Till that age, when actual arc and other a number of sport
    kinds will be conquer by new inventions in digital know-how, programming and graphic and sound card adaptors, we will need to cope with these lower exciting gadgets and to get ready for the subsequent transition: the step to a simpler, safer and more academic planet of gaming.
    Keep playing and learn to become a great gamer quick.
    On the other hand, handheld gaming devices are battery-powered portable self-contained devices that can be taken anywhere and are relatively small.
    Archetypes – This yardstick is totally optional but
    I use this for characters all the time.
