Detox: Day 6


This morning I woke up early to run errands and get to a group meeting at school.

Breakfast: Tea with Almond Milk

Lunch: Greens and Carrot Salad w/ Olive Oil and Lemon Juice Dressing (see Day 3’s lunch)

Dinner: Apple, Carrot and Ginger Soup
All of the pulp from Day 4’s snack – apple, carrot and ginger juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup basil
Salt and pepper to taste

This recipe follows the same process as Day 1 and Day 3’s soup. You can squeeze in some lemon at the end if you wish.

This soup is different from the others I made. It’s slightly sweet and spicy and has a more subtle flavor, reminding me of butternut squash or pumpkin bisques. Despite not having any cream, it tastes rich. It was also the easiest to make since I already had the pulp ready. I love efficiency in the kitchen!

And so, six days down and I truly feel great. I slipped on my skinny jeans to go out with friends after dinner and they fit me differently than before. I’ve lost a pound or two (unintentionally), but I feel stronger. My whole body seems more toned, as if I’ve been deflated and my skin is a lot brighter. One more day to go!
