How I felt:
I definitely felt more full today. I was so happy to eat some protein! I had more energy (and knew that I would be getting more protein) so I went running today. I started slow just to get into the swing of things again. Since I was cooking much of the day and had to periodically taste the lentil soup, I never got that hungry after lunch.
I will confess that I did cheat a little today. I made the Tiny Dancer baked turkey meatballs with a new recipe for the first time and I tried 1/2 of golf-ball sized meatball. Sue me! It was DELICIOUS. I did feel very full but no tummy ache thankfully. Since it was a new recipe I really wanted to try it to see how it came out and see if I had to tweak it for future preparations. I don’t think this will affect the overall cleanse and I don’t feel guilty!
