Day 5 is done, which means I’m halfway through the cleanse!* I’ve already noticed my taste buds adjusting. The big test was giving my kids animal crackers (which were a slight–okay, BIG–addiction for me before), and I didn’t feel the need to grab any for myself. You’ve gotta celebrate the little victories, right? 🙂
Here’s today’s rundown:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and an orange
Lunch: Salad with leftover chicken from last night
Supper: Blackened tilapia (One of my all-time favorite fish recipes found HERE. I used olive oil instead of butter.); Pan-roasted tomatoes with herbs (Recipe found HERE) — I just have to go on record and say this meal seriously made my taste buds do a happy dance. Who says no salt and no sugar have to mean no flavor?! 🙂
Snacks: Cherries; Cucumber slices with hummus; Apple slices with crunchy peanut butter on top; Baked cinnamon banana slices
Tea of Choice: Apricot & peach green tea from a local roaster
Exercise: Elliptical machine
Energy Level: Pretty good! I took both kids to the grocery store with me–including a mad dash through the rain. All of this after doing the elliptical in the morning, so I’d say that’s a good energy day. 🙂
Since it’s the weekend, I’m keeping it short and sweet. See you tomorrow!
