I am almost finished with this cleanse. Tomorrow is my last day and I will say that I do feel “cleaner”! I definitely do not feel as sluggish as I did a week ago. My skin looks and feels good! I have been sticking to smoothies, green juice, and soups… all made from the elimination food list in the Clean book, by Alejandro Junger, M.D.
Snack are supposed to be used sparingly if you are absolutely starving. I was pretty sure, on multiple occasions this week that the rumbling in my tummy was hunger, but I did follow the book’s directions to try drinking water and using distraction to see if it was true hunger! Alas, it was REAL!! I kept almonds, dried apple, dried mango and (clean) energy bites from Whole Foods on hand to satisfy the rumbling!!!
Last night I had the zucchini mushroom soup, which can be found on Page 254. It was good, but next time I will be using half the amount of mushrooms that the recipe calls for. It was a little chunky!
