DETOX . day . one

The little ones got me up bright and early this morning (they have been doing this a lot recently) and I had to scramble to get in a shower, brush my teeth, and get dressed. I found myself dreaming of a nice hot cup of coffee and then I remembered what was happening today! A hectic way to start the first day of my detox plan, but it is perfect actually. If you wait for the perfect moment you know, you may be waiting a long long time;)...


7am (or upon rising): Glass of room temperature lemon water: 
The lemon water was a close second to my coffee, actually. It tasted good and between all the running around I was doing this morning I did not notice much of a difference, honestly! For today it was ok, but we will see how I fare as the days go on.

8am: Herbal tea:

10am (breakfast): Blueberry and Almond Smoothie: 
The smoothie was good, and it could not have come at a better time. I was really getting hungry! It was actually quite filling. For now;)

11:30am: Coconut water *without added sugar*:
This was also a nice treat, sort of sweet tasting in a natural sort of way... and it came at a time when I really wanted something else to eat!

1:30pm (lunch): Salad with Carrot and Ginger Dressing: 
I really liked this dressing, but for use on a normal day I would cut way back on the shallots. I love onion, but the dressing was really strong I am have decided that the shallot was the culprit. 

The salad also had a lot of onion (1/4 of a red onion) which was a lot for me. 

My eyes are watering now while I write this! But I am not going to mess with the program, and I would like to add that my nose ran and my eyes watered which signals some sort of detox, right? I don't know! But that is what the fine print told me to do, so there it is.

4pm (snack): A handful of mixed pumpkin and sunflower seeds:
This is when the headache kicked in!

6pm (dinner): Broccoli and Arugula Soup:

The soup was good, but somebody shoot me... my head is really banging and I feel very queasy.

I think there is a good chance that this was a one day detox;)
