Detox Day 2

Hey everyone! Today's post is going to be quick because I need to head out to work soon. Just to let you know I won't be posting every day of my detox because sometime you just need a break, but I'll be posting as much as I can.

Check out what I'll be eating today!

Breakfast was an apple topped off with some almond butter, raisins and cinnamon. Great way to start the day!

For a midmorning snack I'm planning on eating a banana and having a small coffee that is half decaf half regular. I'm trying people!!

I enjoyed lunch so much yesterday and have so much spaghetti squash that I decided to make the same meal again, except this time I added some broccoli. This will definitely be a hearty clean midday meal.

Dinner is going to be a big, beautiful chopped salad.

So far so good with this cleanse. I really love eating this way, it is just a matter of making it a habit again. Now that the winter is coming and wedding season is slowing down I'll have more time to cook and won't have to rely on convenience foods so I feel good that these habits will stick. 

Hope you all have a great day!!


  1. Im sure you will do an awesome job with the detox! It's easy to be enthusiastic about it when your making awesome stuff like this!

  2. Sounds and looks like a GREAT food day to me! That spaghetti squash looks so good! That's another thing that I haven't tried yet, but plan too very soon!

    We do the half and half on the coffee at my house...It's not so bad. :o) My hubby has started drinking straight decaf now, but I can't handle that. I need a tad bit of caffeine....ha I drink tea most of the time through the week now and coffee on the weekends...most of the time that is. ;) Have a good day!~

  3. Looks yummy, as always. I just recently got some almond butter, and I like it so much more than peanut butter. I've been missing out.

    I'm always so impressed when someone gives up caffeine. I worry that I would go on a murderous rampage if I gave it up.

    That's so weird that your blog disappeared yesterday! I worry about that happening to my blog, and I really should figure out how to back it up. Glad it seems to be working now.

  4. That's a lot of veggies, which is so terrific! That apple looks like a perfect breakfast. I'm going to have to have that some mornings.

  5. What happened with you eating baby food? Did that ever happen?

  6. Gorgeous looking food! I bought a tiny little spaghetti squash at the Farmers Market today; I can't wait to use it!

  7. Thanks everyone!

    Brittany - Thanks! I've been enjoying all of my meals so far! I hope I'll be just as enthusiastic a week from now when I'm doing my second week grain free! ;)

    Michelle - Thanks! THe spaghetti squash is so good! I'd recommend pairing it with some sort of protein so it keeps you fuller longer. Veggies are filling but don't stay filling, ya know? I liked the half decaf half regular. I'm willing to make compromises but I just love the taste of coffee so much I can't see depriving myself of it.

    Sage - Thanks! I know almond butter is SO good and better for you than peanut butter. I haven't given up the caffeine yet but I'm working on it. I know I was really upset that it disappeared! I had to change my password for the second day in a row today. I'm considering moving my blog if it keeps happening because it is really ridiculous.

    Molly - Thanks! I loved the apple today I'll probably have one tomorrow too. Such a great fall snack.

    Shen - Eek I totally forgot about it! I popped a banana in the freezer when I got home from work I'll make myself a smoothie tomorrow. Thanks for reminding me!

    FF - Thanks! Yay for spaghetti squash! Can't wait to see how you prepare it!

  8. It makes me a little sad that your detox food is my every day food - a nice reminder of how 'not normal' my diet is! Ohh, the joys of having a horrible gastrointestinal tract. But, I promise that if you keep it up you will continue feeling like a million bucks - totally worth it.

    PS - I'm eating an apple covered with almond butter and raisins riiiiight now! But I wish I was eating that salad next - it looks delicious.

  9. There is no way you should be sad about that! This is the way I SHOULD eat every day and will hopefully continue to eat every day after this cleanse is over (with grains obviously). I already feel a lot better and I know that after the month it'll be amazing! I've done this once before and I remember I felt phenomenal after which is why I decided to do it again. ANd thanks! Apple and AB is my favorite snack at the moment!
