DETOX DAY 1

Ok, I have to be honest...I have never completed a 3 day or week long detox. However, after seeing my 2 co-workers complete a week long detox and their amazing results, I knew I had to push myself to try! I thought if I blogged my way through this, I make myself stick to it. So over the next few days I'm going to post exactly what I've been eating for each meal. This specific detox is a fruit and veggie detox. You can eat all the approved vegetables you want and 3 fruits a day.  Hope this inspires someone else to take the plunge!

"Pre-Breakfast"
Like most detoxes, the most important thing to do is drink plenty of water. For this detox you are supposed to drink at least 8oz of warm water with lemon. I love warm lemon water so this was the easiest part! {P.S. If you haven't check out the boutique lately, stop by for lots of new goodies!}


Breakfast
It was a little odd to eat veggies for breakfast but sometimes you have to just suck it up! 


Snack
1/2 cup of grapes


Lunch
I mixed together a small amount of Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon juice to make a dressing. I mixed mushrooms, tomatoes and cucumbers into the dressing and put them over lettuce, which isn't shown. 


Dinner
It's pretty cold in VA so I wanted to make something warm to eat and Pho sounded like the perfect meal. I started out with low sodium vegetable stock, yellow onions, green onions, jalapeƱo slices, tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce and zucchini noodles. It was delish!


Snack
1/2 cup of honey dew melon which is not shown. 

I survived day 1 and I'm so excited!!! Let's see how tomorrow goes...

  1. Good luck!! I'm curious to try a detox too! I've been on a strict gluten-free diet for about 2 months and it definitely became easier after a week. How have you handled eating out or events with friends? That's always been my barrier to making certain diet choices.
