Congratulations fellow cleansers! How’s everyone feeling?
I woke up today with not one craving and typically breakfast is the first thing I do. This morning I was not hungry at all [ !!! ]. I ate a banana & OJ mixed with a bunch of sparking water. Later I had a green drink [ recipe found here ]. Each time I complete this cleanse, it becomes easier- this time was a breeze compared to my first time [ which was a struggle ].
Dying to know: if you participated in the challenge, what was your rose & what was your thorn? Tell, tell. My rose: the increase in energy levels. My thorn: the “day three juice” tasted too veggie, making it way too difficult to consume 64 ounces.
If you just completed the cleanse, this is what I would recommend for the next week:
+ Tons of water and green tea.
+ Light coffee/alcohol.
+ Practice portion control! You just spent three days detoxing; your appetite will not be as big as it normally is. Use miso soup sized bowls. Kickstart healthy habits.
+ Go low on carbs. If you’re eating carbs think: quinoa, whole grains, Oasis 8 toast with soy nut butter, or black beans.
+ Examples of post-detox bites: fruits, veggies, hummus with rice chips, almond butter on celery, quinoa, lentils, arugula salads with beets, broccoli, lemon juice, olive oil & a sprinkle of cheese, light string cheese sticks, scrambled eggs, nuts, dark chocolate chips for dessert, and/or veggies covered in fresh tomato sauce.
+ Have a small amount of veggie juice late afternoon- because why not?
+ Don’t binge. Enjoy the light weight feeling!
I’m currently blogging in the clouds…we’re off to Cabo for a few days for a much needed vacation [ hence the picture ]. Hope your weekend is stress-free & relaxing!
P.S. A results post will be up tomorrow- super excited to share the results of the juice cleanse! xo,
