First Day Off the Detox

Well today I am officially done with my 21 Clean Program detox. All in all it was not that bad. I truly enjoy smoothies and I love fruit and chicken so it was actually enjoyable. I feel like I have more energy and my skin cleared up. I also don’t feel as tired anymore. I did miss oatmeal, cheese, and eggs. It did make me realize that I have to incorporate more fruit and veggies in my life. I also learned from watching Dr. Oz: 28 Days to Prevent a Heart Attack the other day that I should be making the meat the side dish.  I will keep that in mind. I did also lose 12.5 lbs while on the detox. I did not do this detox to solely lose weight but to do a beginning of the year cleansing. I am going to try to do this every new year. Lets see how that will turn out. 

The bread that I made yesterday turned out ammmmmmmmaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzing! It was so good. I don’t know if I will ever buy any store bought bread anymore. It doesn’t compare.

For lunch I decided to make a panini with the homemade bread. It was yummy!

Here is what the sandwich contained:

  • Kumato Tomato
  • 1/3 avocado
  • Chipotle mustard
  • Arugula
  • Boars Head Everroast Chicken meat
  • Boars Head Creamy Havarti with jalapeno

For a mid afternoon snack I made some kale chips.

Here is how to make them:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Wash the kale very good and dry with a salad spinner (opt for organic if possible)
  3. Put on parchment paper
  4. Drizzle or spray with olive oil
  5. Put some salt to taste
  6. Bake for 15 min or until leave are crispy but not brown

Voila! You made some kale chips!

I bought this wine at the Fresh Market. It was a recommendation from the wine guy at the store. It was given a 91 point score. So I decided to go with it and give it a try….

For dinner I made a Caprese salad with some homemade balsamic vinaigrette, fresh mozzarella, and kumato tomatoes on top of arugula. I also had a small piece of rib eye and a glass of wine. It was a good pairing.

Today I spent some time studying for my Biology class and upcoming SAT test. I also got into a kitchen organization kick after watching KERF’s post. It was really a motivator.

Here is some of the stuff that needed to be organized:

I went through everything to make sure it was not expired. We went through it a few weeks ago but there were thing that were expiring this month. I also threw some old open stuff away.

I got rid of old knives in this drawer.

This afternoon I ran 3 miles. My knee has been killing me and I am getting worried since I will be running the Disney Princess Half marathon next month. I found out that it is my IT band and am gonna try am exercise called Walt Reynold's ITB special and I will also be using the handy dandy foam roller. We will see how this goes. I hope this gets better! Well see ya guys later! Bye!
