Detox Diet, Day One ~ Rachel

Yesterday I ate/drank: skinny latte, hot dog, Sun chips, pasta with bacon, Asiago bread, frozen yogurt and a cupcake. I figured if was detoxing for at least 3 weeks, I could go out with a bang. It was totally worth it. That all sounds terrible in a list but I promise I didn’t go overboard with portions.

I started off my detox with an appointment with Doc this morning. I brought in my dark chocolate bars to show him. He immediately said I couldn’t have them. WHAT? They have sugar in them. Argh. Sugar isn’t listed anywhere in the packet he gave me but apparently it goes without saying. So there went my sanity. I also can’t have the salad dressing I bought because of sugar. So now I have to deal with only having fruit to satisfy my sweet tooth and making my own salad dressing…as if I don’t spend enough time in the kitchen.

I sound a lot crabbier than I actually am…though it is only 11am 🙂

This morning I had 2 oz of smoked salmon (it was on mega sale at the store) and shared the remaining 2 oz with Kharma and Darwin who thought they died and went to heaven. I then ate a 2 egg omelet with spinach, mushrooms and 1/4c goat cheese. I’m now eating a big bowl of watermelon.

I have no clue what lunch will be but I’m pretty sure it will involve produce.

Dinner will be balsamic chicken with mushrooms over brown rice and a vegetable (probably asparagus for me and broccoli & cheese for Dave).

I think a good bit of the day will be spent in the kitchen…hummus, black beans, fruit, fruit and more fruit…it’s a lot of work being healthy. That doesn’t even count my meals for the day!

Also…I think I need a bigger fridge. The watermelon I have to cut up is 17 pounds.

    Hmmm, it seems you can have sugar in the form of fruit. Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute from fruits and veggies. I wonder if this would fly on your detox diet? Again, it might not be a bad idea to totally give up added sugar of every kind until after your detox.

    17 pound watermelon? Did you use a chainsaw to cut it up? *GRIN*

    I know that when I’ve fully stocked up on fruits and veggies, my fridge is too small. But it’s kinda cool to see all of that “healthy junk” (as Beaver Cleaver used to say) in the fridge – you know you’re doing something good for yourself!

    Good luck – it sounds like this is going to make you have to think about everything you put in your mouth!
