That’s right folks half way there. Things have been going pretty well for me. Day 1 was a bit of a shock at work. The option of running out to grab a quick snack was out. (My favorite salmon cakes have wheat in them.) Overall though, it’s been great to reconnect with some old favorite recipes and invent some new ones. The black bean soup with sweet potatoes garnished with avocado and cilantro was delish. For a special treat I made some muffins using Bob’s Red Mill gluten free baking mix. I added kalamata olives and green olives for kicks.
I’ve had a few phone calls and texts from fellow detoxers with near misses and slight slips. The dreaded wine after work craving. ( I recommend some grape Kombucha in a wine glass. It takes some getting use to but then it’s downright addictive.) One friend ate Indian and ordered the whole meal vegan until dessert when she forgot that mango ice cream was, well ice cream. Oh well one small slip does not a detox ruin.
Then there were the various detoxing side effects folks experienced. Headaches seem to be the most common. Runny nose happened for a couple people. I seemed like these were definitely improved by acupuncture, visits to the spa and drinking more water. I always think it’s good when those things happen. You know you’ll be so much better off then you were before when they are over.
Well off for another cup of mint tea. yummy
