Wish Us Luck.

John and I started our detox today.  It was a goal for the New Year.  This morning I awoke to find the ground covered in snow, which is awesome, but snow seems kind of lonely without hot coffee.

Instead it was a berry blast smoothie, complete with whey protein and milled flax seeds.  Yummy.  I know I do not sound enthused about this detox (which was not my idea), but then again, when I think for a moment over the long list of bad food products I have consumed over the past few weeks alone, I start nodding my head and get re-energized for detox program 2011.  It is only a few days anyway.  Okay, I'm still justifying myself.  I'll stop rambling.

(Wish us luck!)

We did a protein shake (bleh..I am NOT a smoothie person) with frozen blueberries, raspberries, banana, whey protein, milk, cinnamon. Then a salad with lots of anti-oxidant rich veggies and 1/2 cup of beans with balsamic vinegar. Then fish and broccoli for dinner. Also supposed to drink green tea. We'll see how it goes! I'm already starving :(

Oh and ours is cool with coffee, just no cream and sugar or sugar substitutes. I can't give up coffee, and it's not worth the headaches I'd get for 3 days. I'm not an all-day coffee consumer. I just need that one cup in the morning.

I'm sick as it is right now so I can't taste much...figured it was a good time to do it!

Wow that is crazy! Glad to know there are people out there suffering too. Well, our detox sounds similar, you eat specific meals for 7 days and then on the eighth day... only "miracle juice" :( we'll see how it goes, I have missed the coffee but no headaches yet, surprisingly.
