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.
