Cleanse Day 3: Fruits and Veggies

Cleanse Day 3: A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice.  Any amount, any quantity.  No Bananas (yet), no potatoes.

I licked an oreo today.  I didn’t eat it, but I licked it, just once.  Maybe twice…Those are just the cravings talking, not hunger.

Surprisingly, I felt really good today on the cleanse.  Energized, cleared mind, and lighter.  I started off the day with guacamole (modified): 1 avocado, red pepper, a pinch of southwestern spice, onion, and lime juice – delicious!  This was Fatima’s brilliant idea.  Why not mix up the fruit and veggies into something I would enjoy eating anyways?

I filled up on cantaloupe, watermelon, grapes, carrots, and snow peas before leaving for work.  I packed 2 big Tupperware containers with cucumbers, carrots, snow peas, peppers, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon, and grapes.

Around 11am, I started snacking on some of my fruit.  At lunch, I cleaned up the veggies, and then snacked all day on the fruit.  Like the previous two days, when I felt hungry I ate.  Between all the water, veggies, melons, and cantaloupe, my bladder felt like it was going to explode.

By the end of the day, I felt great.  I felt some hunger on the verge, so I hurried home to restock on food.  Apples, melons, carrots ended my night.

I am looking forward to tomorrow!  I get to eat a “Wonder Soup.”  I bought all the ingredients tonight, and threw them into the crock pot.  That will start my day as breakfast…

    I literally burst out laughing at that first sentence.
