Day 1 was okay and I only felt a little more tired than usual by day’s end but I realized (and thank you, Lauri, for the great suggestions) that I need more fuel for the day. I never did cut up my veggies and knew I should have.
Day 2 – exciting – Joos™ in am was great although I still had my tea and I felt a little spacey and not centered by mid-morning (maybe that was good for our CoffeeShopBloggers meeting, maybe not). Anyway, I picked up some veggie dishes at Whole Foods for lunch (which I think fit the cleanse in essence) and felt good.
I had my second Joos™ around 2 pm and really enjoyed it. There are different types of Joos™ and I have tried three of them and liked them all…but I also like wheatgrass shots…grin (BTW, these are way more delicious than wheatgrass).
I have been snacking on almonds, fruit and humus and crackers – Oh, and I did find the roasted seaweed snack at Trader Joe’s and like it…sweet and sort of like an appetizer.
I also got to try these great baked goods from Joos™ that look like mini-muffins (really like Whole Food’s brownie bites not that I like those or anything) – in a word, yummy. They give you an energy boost and are sweet and nutritious and, get this, they are made “… from JOOS™ pulp, which contains kale, chard, collards, celery, cucumber, apple, carrot, lemon, lime, ginger, and more ….and they are gluten-free and do not contain any refined sugars (even the chocolate chips are sugar free). They are organic, vegan, and high in protein and fiber.” Seriously? They taste way to good to have all of those healthy attributes! I ate them knowing all of this and was so pleasantly surprised.
All in all a busy day and I felt good – not even minding not eating the ice cream at the school party last night…much.
