Detox Day One
I usually do a wee bit of a clean out in January but this year I've decided to follow Nutri's NutriClean Programme and today is day one of detox time!! I'm not fasting and I'm not just juicing, (not until days 7-9) but my diet is now even squeakier clean than usual. Is that possible, I hear you cry! Err, yes, especially after Christmas. Gone are the usual suspects: gluten, sugar, dairy, nightshade family veg (tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, aubergines), corn and eggs, oh and of course, alcohol and caffeine!! The only meat I'm having is venison and organic chicken, and there will be some organic salmon and white fish. And in is pretty much everything else, organic as much as possible and as much as I want to eat.
Other than giving my body a helping hand, one of my main reasons for doing this is to try out the combination of supplements on the programme and I'll say more about these and their benefits over the next few days, but in case you're interested, here's what I've had today in terms of food.
Breakfast, my wonderful Nutribullet sorts me out as ever. Spinach, pineapple, apple, and shelled hemp seeds.
Snack: a great handful of brazil nuts and Nutri Ultraclear (more on this to come)
Lunch: Nutribullet again with beetroot, spinach, carrot, apple, ginger and garlic. Overdid the garlic in an attempt to get rid of the last bits of a cold so will be tweaking this one before recommending!! Quinoa with half an avocado, chopped beetroot and chick peas, and flax oil.
Dinner: Soup with onions, leeks, sweet potato, carrots, broccoli, red lentils and turmeric. About to be consumed so off I go for now!
