All in – Week 3Posted: February 6, 2014
An interesting thing happened this week. As my husband and I started to discuss how we’d like to continue the “Clean” lifestyle after this 3 week cleanse I found myself starting to cheat. I’m not talking coffee and french fries but maybe an organic brown rice cake smothered in almond butter and covered with blueberries after I’ve had a very filling lunch. While all those foods are “on program”, my purpose for this cleanse is to give my body a break, to abstain from the special little something after my lunch, this is a detox not an all you can eat buffet.
I am happy to explore the 1,001 clean chocolate-y dessert options out there, in fact I just ordered this Gnosis chocolate. But AFTER this three week experiment is over – in the meantime, my husband and I are discussing our strong finish to this 21 day food journey.
We’ve agreed for our last day to juice all day – no food, just green juice. My husband is pushing to juice for day 20 AND 21, he’s so hard core! I am not hard core and I’m not very nice when I’m hungry, so I countered with smoothies AND juices for days 20 and 21. Stay tuned to see how we decided to glowingly glide across our finish line.
