Detox Day 2

Day 2 of this detox, I'm pushing through, yesterday was not a great day. I didn't feel very good in the evening and ended up crying for about half an hour.  Ridiculous!  I complained to my husband how much I wanted chips and cookies and cake and french fries and ice cream!  He just laughed at my silliness.  I told him that if I couldn't make it through the breakfast drink without gagging, then I wasn't going to continue today. I made it.  Dang.

If you're curious what this detox includes, you can find full instructions here, but I'll do a brief summary.

First thing in the morning:
-water with lemon and ginger
-green breakfast juice: celery, kale, an apple, a small cucumber, parsley.  So far I hate it.

Mid morning snack:
-cut up veggies-celery, cucumber, carrots.  I did not include celery today for fear of throwing up.  It would appear celery on it's own makes me sick.  I've never really liked it anyway.

-sushi salad-grated carrots, avocado, cucumber, cilantro, nori, toasted sesame seeds, and a soy/lemon/ginger dressing.  Not bad, I like the nori the best because it reminds me of sushi :D

Afternoon snack:
-'activated almonds'-I soaked them overnight and so they are damp, that's supposed to bring out more of the nutrients.  These make me want to gag as well.  It's sort of a love-hate relationship.  I like almonds, but something about this texture is not working for me.

-Vegetable 'soup'-basically a ton of cut up vegetables in water with a little bit of salt and spices.  Not bad.

-Chia seed pudding-it never turned into a pudding consistency like the site said, I ended up drinking it. It was weird.

Evening Tea:
-Cup of Chamomile tea-it's supposed to relax you.  And I did have a very good night.  Of course that could have been because of all the crying.

I am curious to see how I feel tonight and tomorrow.  A lot of the reviews I read said that the first and second days are rough but everyone feels amazing on the third day.  We'll see.


  1. There are lots of great chia pudding recipes out there. The key is to let it sit in the fridge for 2-4 hours or more, so the chia thickens it. I like the recipes that have a 1:4 ratio of chia to liquid at the most.

  2. This looks like a great way to detox! Thanks for sharing! Xo, M&K at
