Today is the first day of my two week detox. No dairy. No wheat. No gluten. No sugar.
How could I ever put myself through such torture?!
The thing is, after what has seemed like months of incessant sugar consumption, over-consuming baked goods, over eating, and not what I would call the healthiest eating, I’ve reached a point where instead, I am asking myself, how could I not put myself through such “torture”?
I’m experiencing a different kind of craving. I have a craving for a cleanse.
But what can you eat if you can’t eat dairy, wheat, gluten, or sugar?
This is when knowing your fruits, vegetables, and grains, and even more importantly – how to cook them, really comes in handy. Luckily we live in a world of supermarkets, internet, and stoves and it turns out that it really doesn’t take much effort to find recipes that are friendly to a variety of diets. As I cook my way through these next two weeks of detoxification, I will post the recipes worth posting and maybe inspire you to take a nutritious but delicious two week break from whatever it is you wish to take a break from.
