Cleanse Day 5: Feast Day

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
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Onion powder/flakes
  • Pepper
  • Salt

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…
