WOOHOO I made it! I just finished my last smoothie and couldn't be more excited at the prospect of solid food in the morning...and seeing my husband for the first time in five weeks! Solid food > husband....husband > solid food...ehh I'm excited for both!
Before I continue, by popular demand, the rest of my story from yesterday. Since I have places to be and people to see (or a bathroom to clean) I will sum it up for you in 140 characters or less. Someone told me I'm a bad example/encouraging people to crash diet/refusing 2 fuel my body and I think insinuated I have questionable ethics. BAM. Like I said yesterday, opinions are great and we all have them, but unless your willing to listen, keep it to yourself.
So this morning's smoothie was 1 cup almond milk, 1 banana, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup ice and some chia seeds in the shape of a heart. I love chia for two reasons. Reason one, they help to maintain an even level of blood sugar throughout the day. Reason two, they look like little dinosaur eggs.
So now that this cleanse is over and I have experienced it for myself, I will never do it ever again! I don't feel any different...just tired and hungry. But, I found some awesome recipes, and experienced something new so I still consider it a win. I won't be blogging any smoothies for a while I hope but stay tuned for the recipe for gluten free quinoa brownies! Happy Valentines Day!
