New Year Cleanse

Hubby and I are joining in with a group of friends, all participating in a 28 day cleansing program/diet thingy.

We start Today.

We will be cutting out all Gluten, Milk, Sugar and Caffeine. Along with following an Arbonne cleanse program. Woo Hoo.

I will be posting progress, recipes etc.



Unsweetened Almond milk mixed with Arbonne Vanilla shake powder and fiber and a handful of fresh blueberries. mmm, only not really. It was very thick, like yogurt. I put it back in the blender and cut it with water, more to drink, better consistency. Next time 1/2 water 1/2 Almond milk. Not keen on flavor.

by 11 am I was hungry. Water, water everywhere.

Snacked on a handful of raw almonds, raw sunflower seeds and a couple of fresh blackberries.

Lunch at Noon-thirty. with water.

Lettuce with Annie's Lemon & Chive Dressing. Small handful of sunflower seeds in salad.
(not my favorite dressing - better with a touch of salt)

Decaf Green Tea

by 3pm HUNGRY> tummy growling. Must Drink my snacks!

Green Apple snack. Lots more water.

Dinner tonight will be at 5 ...

Chicken and Rice Stew

Chop celery and carrots coarsely - saute in Olive oil until soft. Boil boneless skinless chicken breasts with carrots and celery (and garlic, salt and pepper) for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth, reserving broth. Adding new diced carrots, celery to a saute pan with olive oil and saute until veggies are soft. Add veggies and diced cooked chicken to pot. Add reserved broth and uncooked brown rice and simmer for an hour or more. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste.

That should fill my tummy yummy. I'll let you know.

It did! Yay.
