6-14-10 through 6-16-10

My kids and I are on an apple juice cleanse so this day
I had 2 cups of prune juice first thing in the morning and
then alternated between apple juice and water every hour until
6 pm.
That was all I was going to do but the boys and I decided to
also have something for dinner so we had rice noodles with cheese.
I know- cheese is almost the worst thing you could have on a cleanse
but this blog is all about being honest about my whole foods intake.
Sometimes I don't do very well on it and sometimes I'm a rockstar!

We did the cleanse for 3 days and each day had something for dinner.
The second day was sweet potatoes and onions, and the third day was
mashed potatoes. We should have had just raw veggies but we are running low on fresh things. It is halfway through the month and we only travel to get groceries once a month. We are excited for the garden's progress so we can have fresh stuff way more often.

My better eating lately is showing up in how I feel.
It is easy to eat good when you get in the hang of it.

Wednesday June 02, 2010

The weekend was full of unhealthy traveling food. I did make many good decisions like snacking on ice water to keep me awake while driving instead of caffeine and only stopping for fast food once. The fast food made us all feel yucky.

Ben made broccoli soup and rice at Mom's house and it was totally delicious even though we used vegetable broth and rice milk instead of their less healthy counterparts.

I am home now and struggling to get back on track. My belly is slightly distended from eating foods that don't easily digest and my energy levels are low. I am on a good track today and will post that tomorrow. For now, here is what I ate yesterday.

Before 10:00
apple cider vinegar/honey drink
red raspberry leaf herbal tea
berry smoothie

After noon:
kashi crackers - these were left from the traveling. Sprouted whole wheat crackers
would have been better for the digestive system.
mints - my sugar cravings are back because of my weekend traveling diet. I am
so glad that they don't have to stay!

Nature's burger (dried mixture that you blend with boiling water and fry like a burger)
white bread burger bun (it was soft and pleasant to bite into but I know that it is glue in the intestines)
bbq sauce
dijon mustard
steak seasoning

Spring mix salad
grape tomatoes
Annie's Naturals ceasar salad dressing

more mints

Here's to doing better every day and looking forward, not back.
