day 1 is in the books and i’m already feeling more like myself. before i share what my day looked like, i want to address one of the biggest concerns i hear. people will often be completely sold on the idea and need for a 30 day cleanse, but they will delay because they have an event, a party, a wedding, a holiday, a this or that….let me tell you, you will never have a solid 30 days where you won’t have an event, function or celebration. don’t sweat it. during this 30 days, i will have my son’s birthday, our wedding anniversary, a holiday, and who knows what else will pop up. so we will work around those things and make informed choices, knowing that this is so much more than a 30 day diet (go ahead and remove that word from your vocabulary in that context). we are setting ourselves up for a lifetime of our best health, and hopefully your lifetime will include lots of opportunities to celebrate.
so….onto my day 1:
breakfast: Dairy Free Vanilla Chai IsaLean Shake blended with 8 oz of low acid coffee, ice, a tsp of coconut oil and a dash or 2 of cinnamon.
mid morning snack: small organic apple and tbsp of all natural peanut butter
lunch: just a simple, no frills vanilla shake. 2 scoops of IsaLean Vanilla, ice and water in a shaker cup.
afternoon snack: Dr. Kracker crispbread, fresh tomato slices, a few black olives and a few cheese squares.
dinner: stuffed portabella mushroom (breadcrumbs, herbs and cheese), sauteed spinach, roasted brussel sprouts and grain/lentil pilaf.
as always….had my morning low acid coffee and about 100 0z. of water throughout the day. i shoot for a gallon a day, fell a little short, but still got plenty in.
that’s about it guys…easy and satisfying. see you tomorrow for day 2 recap.
