My cleanse has been going well, to say the least, and I’ve been trying to keep up as best as possible. As I mentioned in my last post, Caitlin’s guest post, about gluten and soy-free diets, gluten has been the hardest for me to eliminate from my diet. It’s very hard for me to walk past a bakery these past few weeks but I’m resisting the temptation. I have more discipline than I thought. For the latest updates on last week, check out the Strala blog. I’ll give you a tid bit of the post:
After the first week of eating tons of greens I decided to get a little creative with my newly found, awesome cleanse. It doesn’t have to be salads day after day after day. I made a few delicious and totally healthy snacks and meals. Last Monday I cranked up my favorite cooking music, broke out the old iron skillet and made myself some black bean, quinoa & sweet potato “burgers.” It was based on a recipe included in the back of Crazy Sexy Diet. It made 8 burgers in total so there were leftovers all week! (Talk about stretching the dollar.) I topped it with a bit of avocado and salsa and wrapped it in a big piece of kale. Soooo yummy!
Here’s a photo-documented sampling of my food week, in review:
