Starting tomorrow morning, I am going on a 21 day “cleanse.” Really, I would just call it a healthy eating jumpstart, but whatever–it will be great after the Thanksgiving-Christmas eating frenzy. Basically you just eat veggies, fruit, and small amounts of chicken and fish for 21 days. Nothing else. To prepare, I went to Sprouts today and boy, do I just love their prices! I know not everything in there is grown in all-natural environments, but they sure sell stuff cheap.
Here was my list:
- bambino melon
- yellow squash
- acorn squash
- sweet potatoes
- romaine lettuce
- frozen green peas
- roasted green peas
- boneless, skinless chicken breast
No dairy or carbs for 21 days…I can do this. By the way, if you have any awesome recipes for preparing veggies, please pass them along. I am sure I will get sick of plain ‘ol salad pretty quick!
I am planning on trying a couple of new things (new for me, that is) such as “cauliflower popcorn” and “roasted root vegetables.” I will admit I don’t think I have ever even eaten a turnip, beet, or parsnip. This will be interesting! I will keep you posted. Here’s to trying new things.
