day 4 and finally the battle of the century has stopped between my left brain and right brain! what have i learned from this? i’ve learned that your body holds every single emotion in there until you find some way to face it head on, deal with it, and let it go.
my acupuncturist slapped my hand a bit for doing this cleanse. she thinks it’s too much of a sugar spike. sorry cleansers! oh well ~ we fortified our bodies this week, and now we can move on to lean meats, fish, veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds when all is said and done. this week is really just the beginning of a healing journey anyway, right?
today’s meals are giving me so much energy, though! it’s only 12:45 and i’ve already eaten them all…oops.
JUICE OF THE DAY: WATERMELON COOLER
- a whole watermelon, rind removed
- 4-6 apples
- 4 carrots
- 4 inches of ginger
- half of a large box of supergreens
- 5 oranges
- 1 grapefruit
SMOOTHIE OF THE DAY: SAME AS DAY 3 (it’s just so good ~ i didn’t want to mess with it)
SALAD OF THE DAY: ASIAN INVASION (my favorite salad so far!)
- red cabbage, shredded
- napa cabbage, shredded
- red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- radishes, thinly sliced
- green onions, chopped
- broccoli, chopped into small, bite-sized pieces
- toasted sesame seeds
i feel like i’m forgetting ingredients ~ but seriously, you can add beans, water chestnuts, carrots, anything your heart desires. it’s SO healthy. just keep dropping in the veggies!
dressing: omg it’s so good.
- miso paste
- dijon mustard
- a few scallions
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- organic tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
- sesame seeds
- sesame oil
- olive oil
- rice wine vinegar
- 3 inches ginger
- hot water if it needs thinning
drop it all in a blender and blend. that’s it. it keeps in the fridge for days and you can use it as a dip for veggies.
add peanut butter if you’re feeling nutty.
so insanely good. i’m not going to put the amounts for most of that because it all depends on taste. just add a little of everything and go from there. gives you an excuse to taste while cooking!!!
and i just had to take a few pics of this beauty…
much love to all of you!
