What I Ate Wednesday #85: Pre-Retoxing

I mentioned on Monday that this week has been deemed “detox before retox” because when you have a week like I did full of cheese..

Cheese Charcuterie Wood Tavern

Margherita Pizza Il Casaro

Asparagus Raspa Dura Il Casaro

..fried chicken..

Addendum Fried Chicken


Addendum Pork Barbecue

..and plenty of beer..

Il Casaro Anchor Steam Nathan

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room Birthday

..I needed a break. Before we go away to wine country for our anniversary. So this week has been very lean, clean, and green!

Breakfasts have looked a little like this:

Banana Sweet Scramble Coconut Cashew Butter

Egg whites, banana, cinnamon, and coconut cashew butter.

Snacks have been especially green!

Kale Mango Smuice Live and Diet LA

Still smuicing it up!

Lunches have been salad-filled.

Bonsai Salad Sushirrito

Mixed Green Salad Chicken Avocado Brussels Sprouts Salsa

Dinners are protein- and veg-happy.

Beer Can Chicken Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Baked Turkey Meatballs Zucchini Noodles Joy the Baker

And because there is always dessert:

Halo Top Creamery Chocolate Ice Cream

A new-to-me ice cream with peanut fluff.

Personally, I know that when I eat foods like grains and starches, even starchy vegetables, my stomach isn’t always happy. And even though I seriously love them, sometimes I just need to give my body a break. I’ve been binging on kabocha and sweet potatoes recently and kabocha-belly is definitely real! My carbs these days are primarily coming from fruits and I’ve also cut back on random snacking. Overall, I’m feeling better after a few days so I’m calling this detox a success thus far.

Food for Thought

What foods are your go-to for detoxing?

  1. That ice cream intrigues me! I know the feeling of needing a detox especially before a retox. I’ve found that with my busy Boston life I need to schedule nights out alternating with nights in. Tonight I’m beyond looking forward to my night in since last night as you know entailed a lot of indulgent stuff! Good thing Monday was also a night in. Sandwiching the nights out with nights in is so key to mental and physical well being, right? Also that Brussels and roasted chicken plate looks to die for. I plan to eat some nice lean protein and veggies tonight!

    • I’m glad you’re able to sandwich your nights out.. it’s always nice to have a quiet night in. Also, I’m once again out of brussels and it’s a travesty!

  2. Both of your meal plans – detoxing and pre-toxing – look amazing! I especially want to dive into that sashimi salad.

    And I’m a HUGE fan of Halo Top. Soooo freaking good!!
