Detox DietPosted: May 17, 2012
I’m sure you can see, from the lack of food posts, that I haven’t been in the kitchen this week. I seem to have lost my cooking mojo and my diet has suffered because of it. My meals have consisted of lots of frozen foods and meals that haven’t been well planned. And, I’m not afraid to admit, I also gave in to non-vegan foods while at work because someone treated me to lunch (being vegan in the workplace is a whole other topic I’d like to discuss in a future post).
Anyway, long story short, physically I feel like crap.
Now, I don’t believe in those fad detox diets that require nothing but liquids, but I do think it’s a good idea to clean up and re-evaluate your diet on occasion. So, during my next grocery trip, I’m stocking up on lots of fresh fruits and veggies. No fake meats or even tofu. I’m sticking to grains, lentils and beans for my protein. I also want to eliminate white flour this week to see if that makes me feel better. And green tea. Lots of green tea.
Do you have any detox foods that you like to eat when you’re feeling a bit blah?
