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..
..and plenty of beer..
..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:
Egg whites, banana, cinnamon, and coconut cashew butter.
Snacks have been especially green!
Still smuicing it up!
Lunches have been salad-filled.
Dinners are protein- and veg-happy.
And because there is always dessert:
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.
