Hey everyone! Looks like I made it back for one last post in 2012 I was just so excited about my grocery haul that I had to share it with you! As I’ve been mentioning in my last few posts, I’m hoping to take my health into my own hands since the drs haven’t been doing much to move the process along. I’m going to do so by getting back into my cardio routine (which I’ve been doing and it feels great!) and by cleaning up my diet.
I’ve been debating how I would get back into that and finally decided that for the first 3 weeks of 2013 I’d do Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Diet Cleanse. I’ve done it before and love the way I felt after and now that I don’t have to cut out the caffeine the detox should hopefully be slightly less unpleasant. Once I’ve restored my alkaline pH I’ll cut the sugar dramatically (which I plan on doing with the cleanse anyway) and only allow one piece of fruit in a juice per day. Then I’ll cut the fruit completely and work on maintaining an Anti Cadida Diet for a little while to see if that helps me further. My overall goals are to restore my alkalinity, detox gluten, cut the sugars and reduce inflammation. I like my plan because I think that it will be more realistic for me to follow through if I cut everything out gradually. I’m really excited!!
I am going to start the cleanse tomorrow… not even necessarily because it the New Year but more so because I needed to go grocery shopping! Check out the haul!!
Carrots, celery, romaine, 2 heads of kale, oranges (for juicing and snacking, yum!), zucchini.
Cauliflower, broccoli, granny smith apples, avocado and lots of cucumbers. Lots of juice planned
Just a few groceries since I’m going to try and use lots of pantry items to balance out the cost of the produce I plan on consuming Some gluten free tortillas, raw cashews, firm tofu, 2 large cans of organic crushed tomatoes and a bag of cheddar daiya that was on sale (and allowed on the cleanse in moderation!).
Thank you to everyone that commented on my last post with feedback! I really appreciate it and it made me so happy to know that you’ve been happy with what I’ve been posting. I am going to get back to posting about my daily meals as requested and would still love suggestions for specific recipes/dishes/restaurant meals you’d like for me to make vegan and/or healthy! I only have a handful of ideas so anything you can add would be so helpful!
That’s all for today! I hope you all have a very Happy New Year!! Be safe and have a great night and I’m wishing you all happiness, health and success in the new year Thank you all again for being amazing!
