As the saying goes, “you are what you eat.” And by eating incredibly healthfully these past two weeks, I’ve as a result been feeling incredibly healthy. Often, detox comes with the assumption that you can’t eat anything except for grapefruit. And as we all should know, that’s not healthy. A grapefruit could never provide you with all the nutrients and minerals you need to be healthier. Sure, the point of a detox is to rid your body of toxins, but you also need to replace those toxins with fruits and grains and vegetables and beans that will restore your health. And I can proudly say that while I detoxified my body, I did in fact eat food.
Now in my case, I wasn’t sick or overweight or anything of the sort when I decided to do a detox. I just felt like I needed a cleansing. After all, a girl can only eat so many baked goods. And as a seventeen year old with a serious sweet tooth and an undying love for cheese leading an incredibly busy life, if I can do it, I really believe anybody can do it too.
Now, for the last supper (and breakfast, dinner, and snack) of my detox.
Breakfast: Millet with banana, toasted pecans, and almond milk.
Lunch: Coconut, tomato, lentil stew and roasted cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and red onions.
Snack: Apple and banana, oatmeal, almond cookies.
Dinner: Sushi – Since it’s just vegetables, fish, and rice, I assumed it would be detox friendly. It was my last day anyways.
Now I’m off to eat some chocolate. It’s time for a reunion.
