A few days ago I wrote about my detox plans for my mini vacation. Yesterday was day 1 for me, here is how it went.
First thing in the morning was a glass of fresh orange and grapefruit juice. As I don’t have a juicer, I’m sticking with citrus fruit for the week. For breakfast I had two slices of buckwheat bread (gluten-free), topped with guacamole and pumpkin spread. The bread tasted a bit weird at first, but it’s not that bad actually.
As I won’t drink any coffee this week, I’m having lots of tea instead. My two favorites are a green jasmine and rose blend and a spicy chocolate herbal blend.
Next up: Lunch. I had a some mixed greens, topped with Bavarian potato salad (recipe coming soon, I hope), and some baked carrot sticks with tahini crust. It was delicious!
People who know me in real life also know that I can’t go for more than a few hours without food. So of course I needed some snacks. I had some mixed fruit right before lunch, a fruit salad with soy yoghurt, and some unpictured trail mix after dinner.
That was the food, but how did I feel? During the day I felt a bit tired, and at night I got a light headache. There are several possible reasons: the lack of caffeine, my tough almost 3 mile run, or the changing weather (it’s raining right now). I guess my body needs some time to adapt to the changes I made.
