Let's check out my Friday eats!
For breakfast I had some Carrot Cake Pancakes I made the other day. I put all the leftovers in the freezer so I'll eat it probably one more time before the cleanse and then I'll save the rest of a treat after. Served them up with an orange...my last one! I've read that lemon, lime and grapefruit, although acidic, actually have an alkalizing effect on the body. No word on oranges though. Anyone know?
Here is an Instagram pic of my midmorning snack. I'm trying to be smart this time and I'm weaning myself off of the coffee rather than going cold turkey. I had a small coffee (half regular half decaf) and a pear. Hopefully three days of weaning will be good enough because that is what makes me the most nervous!
My lunch was very random but consisted of exactly what I wanted so I had a slice of gf millet toast with avocado and some stuffed grape leaves with hummus. Very delicious!
After lunch I decided to do my nails. I don't paint them often enough at all and I got tired of looking at naked nails. I would say 7 out of 10 times I paint them I end up taking the polish off because I become too impatient to let them dry and mess them up. This time they survived! The color looks a little more red in the bottle and brown on but I still like the way it looks :)
After my nails dried I decided to have a Zing Protein Bar in the Chocolate Coconut flavor. It was really really delicious. It tasted like a candy bar and not a protein bar. This is the perfect alternative to the Vega Protein Bar since it is the same exact flavor and I can NEVER find the Vega Bar. Yum! I'll have to remember this as an occasional treat after my cleanse.
Dinner was another bowl of that delicious soup from last night. I switched bowls so you could tell I took a new pic ;) Just as delicious tonight! One serving left...will I eat it tomorrow or Sunday? Riveting cliffhanger, I'm sure.
I have only read a few parts of Crazy Sexy Diet (I plan on reading it through this weekend) and I'm completely inspired. Her story is amazing and really truly inspiring. I know that green smoothies are going to be my breakfast for the 21 days so I've been looking up alkaline green smoothie recipes and collecting them so I can have a little variety over the three weeks. It is going to be difficult for me to drink my breakfast for 21 days so I figured as long as I have a little variety it'll be a little easier. I'll share the recipes as I try them. I found a few that sound really good so I'm excited to try them. I'll probably stick to spinach as my greens of choice but maybe I'll be bold enough to try kale eventually.
I should be back to check in throughout the weekend! I hope you all have a really lovely weekend. I plan on resting and cleaning....then resting again ;) Enjoy!
