My fridge is (almost) empty.
I’m in panic mode.
This was my fridge after dinner last night:
Why so void of food? Well, it’s now filled with juices. I’m doing a cleanse. The awesome people at Skinny Limits reached out to me to try their 3 day cleanse… normally I’d balk at the idea, but after an indulgent holiday season and a year (or more) of packing in protein, I decided to give my body a rest.
For the next 3 days, 6 times a day, these are my meals:
There will be a full review coming, but if you’d like to follow along in real-time check out my Instagram.
This WIAW I made sure to thoroughly enjoy my last day of solids til Saturday. I relished every last morsel.
Read on for my eats, and then check out Jenn’s blog for everyone else’s delicious creations!
Then that was followed by a very white-ish-brown meal of a puffed corn cracker, turkey, and #yolkporn sprinkled with red pepper flakes.
Greek yogurt mixed with a little stevia and a lot of cinnamon for “dessert.”
More turkey, mixed with my wasabi-blue cheese dressing and zucchini with a slice of Ezekial toast.
Turbot, carrots, hummus, and a Sriracha Veggie Muffin. Those muffins are great from the freezer, by the way.
Maple-Bourbon Roasted Chicken left over from a Monday lunch at Metro Fresh with a side of asparagus and more (unpictured) hummus. I’m loving Whole Foods’ omega hummus with flax and walnuts!
There was a TON of traffic and by the time I finally got home (an hour late) I was hangry. I nibbled on veggies while I cooked. I sautéed asparagus, mushrooms, and spinach while making a mix of hummus, cayenne, and tuna. I wrapped all that up, pressed it in my George Foreman grill, and finished it with a drizzle of fig-balsamic reduction.
They say to ease into a cleanse… I did not. I admit it – I panicked and ate the last of everything that I thought would be tempting. Fully aware this isn’t how it’s meant to be done. #sorryimnotsorry
I made my 150 Calorie Chocolate Protein Cake, but topped with a lot of Greek yogurt-cinnamon “icing,” sprinkles, and cacao nibs.
Then I finished off a pint of Arctic Zero ice cream, almond butter, whipped cream, homemade magic shell, and hemp seeds.
My “magic shell” is just equal parts melted coconut butter and cocoa with a little stevia.
And then I had a Red Velvet Protein Bar. I needed a night-cap. Bam,
I hope my trainer continues to be too busy to read my blog. He’s going to hate this cleanse. LOL!
Have you ever done a juice cleanse?
Do you ever go through a day and realize 75%of your food was color-less? So weird for me!
