High Raw Detox Day 3
Mid Morning: Green Juice consisting of broccoli stalks, lemon, bunch of kale, cucumber, ginger, stevia.
Lunch: Big Salad with cucumber, smashed avocado with lemon, onion powder, stevia, salt and pepper. Steamed broccoli with coconut oil, lemon, s&p. Yam with coconut oil, s&p.
Note: I was completely hooked on whipped Earth Balance and worried about being able to give it up. How will I eat steamed broccoli without my EB, I thought. Well--coconut oil to the rescue! I've been substituting with Navitas Naturals coconut oil and I'm doing just fine! Not only that, but I need only a fraction of what I was consuming with the EB. A tiny little bit goes a very long way and it's a much cleaner oil.
Pre-Dinner: I'm not supposed to eat (dark) chocolate until after dinner, but I started getting that weak, shaky feeling and just grabbed it and ate it. It's weird because I don't feel hungry when that happens, but eating helps to take that feeling away. Juice probably would have too, but I wanted something immediate. And also sweet plays into it as well. Hopefully my body will adapt soon, I really would like to reserve chocolate for more of a treat than a stabilizer.
Dinner: Salad--red leaf lettuce, cuke, shredded carrot, mashed avocado, lemon, seasonings. steamed broccoli w/lemon and coconut oil, s&p, half a sweet potato. (ate half of sweet potato, doubled the broccoli and salad portions).
