I admit it! It’s hard to do any kind of detox or fast after the hectic pace and snacks for dinner life, lived in December.
You would think the knowledge that the Daniel Fast is coming every year at the same time would help. It doesn’t! So slow we go, step by step.
I started by going for the jugular – my sweet tooth. There, I said it! No more agave. Waaaa! But I am over it now.
Then it was the late night snacks, pistachios and plantain chips.
It was a week of soups and salads as one by one the comfort foods went bye-bye. But I went out with a bang at my favorite falafel place, thanks to a bestie who took me for a celebratory meal at Maoz since were sticking to the plan.. Yum, yum, yum. That last big meal helped satisfy my cravings.
So moving on, the juice detox is in full effect. Do you notice how your olfactory perception is heightened during a detox? I haven’t had fried fish in eons but tonight I could smell it a block away.
Today’s Menu was:
