Cleanse Day 4

Day Four is officially DONE!!! Whoo hoo… More than half way!! Today I mixed it up a bit (which is okay according to Dr. Junger). We had a family dinner tonight so I saved my “solid” meal for dinner instead of lunch. And knowing I may cheat a little I also kept my liquid meals light. I made my own green juice for breakfast and lunch! We had a Mediterranean meal, so I had some brown rice, hummus with carrots and celery, and tabouli. I did cheat a little with a few bites of steak and some stuffed cabbage! But I did pass on cake and ice cream (go me)!!!!

I have heard a lot of negative comments from people about green juices, and them not tasting good. But I have to say I love this recipe! It’s actually really good! Use a juicer if you can!

1 whole cucumber, 2 Granny Smith apples, 1 lemon (peel removed), 4 celery stalks, 5-6 leaves of kale and 1 inch of fresh ginger.

Cleanse Day 2

Yesterday I prepped meals for the next few days! I still have two full days of the Clean Program packet, that I didn’t finish from my last cleanse. So my plan is to finish that off and then complete my seven day cleanse on my own, from the book!


I had a shake for breakfast made with the clean program protein packet, frozen mango, frozen pineapple, and coconut milk. I also wanted to mention that I got a Vitamix recently and my shake this morning was 100% better than when I did this cleanse last year. There were no chunks, or gritty residue like there have been in the past with my old blender! My shake was actually really yummy!! I also had my clean supplement packet and probiotic…


I made two meals that should last a few days! One, which I also had for lunch today, was an Artichoke Millet Risotto. It is delicious and I will be having this as my “solid” meal for the next few days!! Along with my supplements, of course!


The second meal, Curried Butternut Squash Soup, will serve as my “liquid” dinner for a few days! I made this in my slow cooker and then used my emulsion blender. I followed the recipe below! One pot, so easy!!! And more supplements…

Curried Butternut Squash Soup~ Cut up two medium butternut squash. Combine in slow cooker with one small onion, minced ginger, 1-2 cups of coconut milk, 1 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and fresh pepper. Add vegetable stock until ingredients are almost covered. (Add more stock if you want a thinner soup, and adjust seasoning to your taste.) Cook on low for 6 hours and then use emulsion blender to blend into a soup consistency. (You can also blend in batches in a blender.)

I felt good today. A little tired, but that could be from my three year old getting up twice last night…. I also had a bit of a headache, which could be coffee withdrawal!!! On to day 2!!

Weekend Getaway!

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a weekend away, before the chaos of Christmas! Nantucket has a Christmas Stroll every year, the first weekend of December. We love it! Everything is decorated for the Holidays, and Santa makes an appearance on Main Street.

Its a great time for us to get away together, to just relax and actually sleep through the night without children in our bed! I always come back recharged and ready to dig into Christmas preparations and Christmas shopping!

Even though these weekends are all about relaxation, I also like to look good!! After all, it is also time away from the kids and my yoga pants!!! So, here is what I wore for this last weekend! Remember: when traveling in the winter, get pieces that are interchangeable. You don’t want to pack three different heavy sweaters, so go with a neutral color that you can interchange with different tops! I lived in this grey sweater all weekend!
