Detox Day 1 – #f450
I had planned to do a detox from mid January to mid February long before the swim idea came up. I have done this before and was really pleased with the results. However, I know I have to be feeling strong and happy before I start and preferably not have anything on the social calendar for at least the first week. So Day 1 was yesterday 18th January. The rules are simple no meat, fish, dairy, wheat, tea, coffee or alcohol and avoid processed foods especially sugars as much as possible.
Breakfast – Porridge made with water and manuka honey
Lunch – Salad, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, green pepper, carrot sticks. Almonds and dried berries and satsuma to follow.
Snack – Oat cakes, with green pesto
Supper – Enormous veg curry, sweet potatoes, swede, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, butter beans, tomatoes with rice.
Feeling physically good; but as expected, a gnawing headache which cleared after my foggy morning walk with the dog.
