Today is the 6th day of the detox. Here is the low-down on how I am feeling…
On another note…. who doesn’t love this fall air! I absolutely love waking up in the morning and breathing in the cool air! I hope this stays around for a while!
On to a recap because I know it has been a few days since my last post!
Roasted carrots and beets and Portobella mushrooms with onions. These were made with the intention of topping a salad but I just didn’t have room for salad too. A nice clean meal that filled me right up. Usually I might get bored with something so simple. But these veggies did the trick.
I have promised Steve that I give up on pumpkin pancakes. They just don’t seem to come out the way that I want them too. I am totally content with just eating pumpkin in oatmeal and smoothies as far as breakfast goes. These might look good and they were edible, but no my fav!
See Stephen’s purplish thumb? He made a bunch of red kraut and I made a few jars of dilly beans on Saturday. We will have lots of fermented veggies in a matter of weeks. No better way to give back to your gut than feeding it some beneficial bacteria!
We enjoyed a delicious tuna salad for lunch! And decided to just relax and watch a few movies. Due Date and Little Fockers. Not as funny as I wished they had been. But it was nice to cuddle up on the couch and spend time with Stephen. If you are wondering, YES, Steve did bring all the salad ingredients home from work! They are beautiful and the carrots just keep getting better and better.
And a delicious Pumpkin Green Smoothie to go along with lunch! This was not very sweet. If I was not watching my added sugar intake during this detox I might have added some local honey on the top! I liked it. Stephen added some chocolate syrup to his which is usually a sign that he doesn’t like something. He adds chocolate chips or syrup to them…
I am pretty excited about these! Sweet potatoes! All I did was slice them pretty thick and bake them at 350 for 20 minutes, then flip and bake them at 400 for 15 minutes. I did brush the top with a little olive oil and salt. They taste just like mashed sweet potatoes. So sweet and I melted a little coconut butter on top as well. Coconut butter is like coconut oil but the fiber is included. Yumm. I just made my 3rd batch of these to bring to work for dinner!
Which brings us up to this morning. I had a great 45 minute sweat session at the gym today. It is funny to watch all the senior men socializing with each other. No different than a room full of high school boys really. It felt good to get it done and out of the way. Followed by a wonderful bowl of pumpkin oats and I think I can call that a great morning!
Yumm, topped with a little pb and some jelly!
Have a good day friends!
