Yesterday was Day 2 of the Whole Living Action plan and let me tell you, this is not easy. Yes, I get to eat lots of delicious, nutritious food. But all I keep thinking about is bread, pasta, chocolate and coffee – and counting the days until I can have some.
What I Ate:
Breakfast: Beet, Carrot and Apple Juice with Mint and a Banana
Mid-AM Snack: Cashews
Lunch: Butternut Squash Soup
Mid-Afternoon Snack: Fresh Mango, Blueberries and Raspberries and Herbal Tea
While Cooking Dinner: Almonds
Dinner: Broccoli and Asparagus Soup, Butter Lettuce Salad and Kale Chips
Drank: Water with Lemon with meals and throughout the day
None – zero energy
How I felt:
I woke up with a low-grade headache that lasted all day but it was not as bad as the first night and I was able to cope without tylenol or caffeine – though I almost caved. I pushed through it, drank lots of water, had some Peppermint Tea (herbal tea is allowed) and felt better. I was able to stay up past 8:30 and get some work done but I’m not feeling great. I’m hoping to do yoga tomorrow – I don’t think I have enough energy to run.
Today’s food was ok but I will note that I hate beets and I never want to eat a beet in any form – whole, cooked, raw, or juiced – again. I personally am not a fan of the flavor of dirt. How do people eat these things??? One highlight was the kale chips – it was my first time making them and they were very tasty. Not quite potato chips but that’s the best I can have for now.
