28-day detox -- so, what DO you eat?

I wish I could give you the laundry list of everything I'm cutting out of my diet, and make it not look so hard.

I wish I could sugar-coat it.

(NO really. I want to cover it in sugar. And then add on some delicious bread, and maybe some cheese. And finish it off with chocolate cake with a vanilla breve to boot.)

Except I can't.

Not literally. Not figuratively.

If you are looking for namby-pamby, easy-breeze, no sacrifice required, shed pounds without even blinking kind of diet -- this is NOT the detox for you.

So. Let's just get it out there. What I'm not eating.

-Sugar or honey
-Wheat, or gluten of any kind
-Coffee or other caffeinated beverages besides green tea/fizz sticks
-All fruits EXCEPT green apples and berries
-Anything refined or "white"
-Artificial anything -- dyes, flavorings, etc.

It doesn't take long to go down this list and realize that what is  typical in American diet does NOT make the cut.

So . . . what the heck have I been eating anyway???

Roasted cauliflower and brussell sprouts, with garlicky green beans,
and cilantro-lime brown rice.

Avocado lime chicken salad. Yumm!
A breakfast shake alternative. Brown rice farina (think "cream of wheat")
with mixed berries and coconut cream.
Easy and delicious vegetable soup, seasoned with fresh sage.
Baked green apples with pecans, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, stevia and a sprinkle of vanilla.

And has all this been delicious?

I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
