Well, I’m sitting here drinking my fourth day green smoothie..and wondering what today will bring. Yesterday I felt like C.R.A.P. Headache, body aches, bloated, and crazy irritable. Don’t Even Look At Me Irritable!!! Thankfully I spent the morning with my grandbaby who always gives me joy no matter how I’m feeling…..but then I went to work…and….yeahhhhh. I’m hoping today might be over-the-hump day…?
Today my smoothie contains celery, cabbage, broccoli stalks (yeah, I usually save them for soup, but since I ran out of kale, I cut a few inches off), lemon juice, kiwi, half a green apple, and a handful each of rasperries and blueberries. Tastes great – and I think I’ll keep doing around 50 % of fruit and veggies for awhile…I really couldn’t stomach that one day of only blended raw veggies!
Even with the detox experience, I’m feeling GREAT about doing this. So, it’s a few days of discomfort. The end justifies the means, in my opinion. I’ll be extra good to myself in the meantime. And drink more water, which I also read is important during this time.
I don’t think I’ve EVER in my life eaten this many fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, so I do really feel like I’m doing something good for me. It’s gotta be worth it, right?
I’ll keep you posted!
