Cleanse Day Five: You will eat beef and tomatoes. Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef. Hamburger is OK. Combine this with six whole tomatoes. Increase your water intake by about a quart. This is to cleanse your system of the uric acid you will be producing.
Today I get to eat steak, tomatoes, and drink lots of water. Boring? Maybe. I felt like it would be a normal day of eating food. I felt no different from a day when I was eating “processed food” – I guess that’s a good thing, right? I almost would have liked today to incorporate veggies and fruit. I’m still having cravings for cupcakes – well cake specifically. Supposedly I was supposed to not have these cravings anymore…
I started off the day with steak and tomatoes for breakfast. How do you take 20 oz of steak and make it delicious for a cleanse? Use what you can: herbs and other seasoning! I rummaged through my cabinets and found some seasoning. I put a few dashes into a bowl and mixed it all together.
Filet Mignon Seasoning:
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder/flakes
Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Combine all the seasoning into a bowl and mix together. Dust and rub your steak evenly with the seasoning. Once hot, use cooking spray on the skillet and lay down the steak. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until desired rareness. Enjoy!
I anticipated to be a little more hungry later on in the day, but I was full through lunch. For lunch I stuck to the steak. Fatima brought back filet mignon leftovers the other night from a dinner, so I brought that in addition to the steak. I kind of preferred the steak I made – it was pretty good! I had 2 tomatoes with lunch and I felt great the rest of the day.
I kept drinking water. The cleanse warned about high uric acid today, so I kept drinking water.
Dinner: 3 steaks, and the last 3 tomatoes. I almost forgot about the tomatoes because I was so full. I held off a while before chowing down on the tomatoes.
Tomorrow should be interesting: Beef and veggies…
