crazy, sexy day 1
This morning's juice was made with: kale, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, a few baby carrots, 1/2 apple, lemon and ginger. Delish! It was so surprisingly refreshing and satisfying and made the entire kitchen smell like freshly cut grass. My 8 yr. old son has even commented the last few mornings on how fresh the kitchen smelled. I was able to get him to drink a glass today after I added a couple of apples and few more carrots to sweeten it up a bit. I got a hesitant thumbs up, but it was still a thumbs up right?
I have to tell you when I first read about this cleanse it seemed a bit daunting. However, after giving up my morning chai tea and my nightly glass of vino, I think I'll live. I know, no wine for 21 days, pretty crazy!
For the last week I have been in pre-detox mode and feel really good. I have lots of energy and know it's only going to improve as I travel down the detox road.
I thought I'd share the beautiful basket of colorful veggies that's sitting on my kitchen counter. It's much prettier and fuller than usual and is inspiring me to cook healthy, beautiful meals.
Until next time...
