I've successfully completely the first 7 days of the cleanse and as reading the little booklet that came with the program I "thought" I could have MEAT today but I think not. It's now two shakes a day instead of three, but I've already been doing only two. I just could not do three. Fruit is just not my thing, veggies on the other hand, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, but I'm not drinking a veggie. I did find on a blog a drink that fruit and spinach leaves in it I might try. Anyway, I think I'm going to continue on the two a day but "sometimes" adding rice or legumes and occasional protein. I honestly think that this cleanse has been what pushed the throat-bacteria to rage and get out of my system. I feel great and the good news is that I am down 6 pounds! That has got to continue. So, back to the store today to replenish the dreaded fruit and veggies, and continue for the next 8-21 days! My only problem is that I still have to cook a meat dish for The Hubby. He's not doing the shakes and he needs his nutrition so he can work. That can be a bit hard for sure.
Now, just look what I picked from the garden. The little tomatoes I've been picking 2-3 everyday but finally the larger ones are coming up read. Deep in one of the plants, the beefsteak variety I have two the size of The Hubby's fist! They are just starting to get the blush of pink. Shouldn't be but a few days and I may have to break so I can have a BLT!
Went ahead and pulled the onions too. The weeds were getting best of my there with them. I will finish digging the potatoes in the next couple of weeks too but THOSE are not on my menu plan! EGAD!
