2010 – cleanse

2010/01/02

welcome 2010. hello. as i read on pacing the panic room….i have to agree and hope you’ll be good to us and give us a break this time around.

to me the perfect way to start the new year is being fresh, clean, and cleanse. it’s a new start to all those things that were left behind or unaccomplished and a way to feel like it’s ok to get them going again. we don’t do new years resolutions, i’m not that into it. but as with the majority out there, this time of year is great for remembering how important it is to take care of yourself, be healthy and happy, and make choices that lend themselves to desired results, etc. hence, i’m attempting another detox week this month. i try to do 2-4 a year and i’ve found this one to be by far the easiest.

anyone into it with me? i’m thinking….mid-jan. ???

here’s what it looks like:

Adjust the time to your schedule and the meals to your taste but remember that there can be no dairy, grains with gluten, red-meat, shellfish, anything processed (including all soy products), fatty nuts, nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant), condiments, sugar and obviously no alcohol, caffeine or soda.

I will probably start on a Friday or Saturday, since I’ll need to take advantage of the weekends when it’s easier to accomplish with the j.o.b. schedule. So I’m thinking in 2 weeks? I’ll post the recipes later this weekend…or week…so you can plan ahead with your grocery shopping if you’re interested in joining me. :)

  3. Interesting. I just commented on another blog and what a great job they had done creating a cleansing diet and now I find that yours is exactly the same. Oh well, it still sounds like a great idea. I may not make it seven days but am getting ready to get started.
