Last night got a little rough when I was up late doing homework/watching TV and had nothing to munch on. This was the time of day I was worried about, but I stayed disciplined and it paid off. I woke up today feeling less sluggish that I usually do. I’m someone who needs an hour to get out of bed once I open my eyes in the morning. My theory is that it was easier for my body to get out of bed this morning because it was hungry. When I eat late at night, it has less of a reason to.
Today I started the morning the way the goop detox wants you to, with room temp lemon water (pretty disgusting). Instead of following with herbal tea, I had weak black tea with a splash of almond milk.
Breakfast: Berry and Almond Milk Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
The original recipe calls for whey and ProGreens powder, none of which I have or want to get because I’m staying away from processed stuff and the ingredient list on those bottles scares me.
Almond milk is becoming a big hit with me and I think I’ll continue the smoothie idea for breakfast after this week, at least for a few days per week. I have more energy until lunch time than I do with my usual breakfast of a latte and Nature Valley granola bar (the two pack).
Lunch: Broccoli and Arugula Soup (see Day 1’s dinner)
Dinner: Salad with Carrot and Ginger Dressing + Miso Soup
Dessert: Glass of Almond Milk
I had to cheat tonight because I got home very late from class. So I ordered this as takeout from a Japanese restaurant close by. I still think it’s pretty healthy and light. I feel sleepy a lot earlier in the night (10:30pm) then I usually do.
