NEW YEAR – TIME FOR A CLEANSE

Happy New Year to all of you!

I really enjoy the beginning of a new year and how it naturally encourages me reflect upon the previous year while at the same time considering of how I hope the new year will unfold.

I have made it a habit to begin the year with a cleanse.  I posted about my cleanse last year and am in the midst of a cleanse which follows the same principals as that one…fruits and vegetables.  Plain and simple.

My family and I were driving home on January 1st from visiting my sister and her family (a long car ride to be sure, but we made record time), so I didn’t begin preparations for the cleanse until January 2nd.  Luckily I had enough fruit on hand that day to begin the cleanse before I had a chance to grocery shop.

January 2nd was spent grocery shopping, steaming corn, water-sauteing shredded cabbage with onions, baking quartered mushrooms, roasting squash on my Silpats instead of using oil, and chopping fruits and vegetables.

I just completed day 3 of the cleanse and plan on continuing through next Friday at the earliest (which would make 10 days), but may do the cleanse for 14 days…we will see how I feel after 10 days.

I truly love how eating this way makes me feel.  Sure, there can be cravings to deal with, but when I crave something sweet I have a banana or some dates.

The net effect is so worth it.

Remember…keep it simple and uncomplicated.  Eat food in its natural state and DON’T GO HUNGRY!!!

  1. What you are calling a cleanse is how I eat every day. It is how humans are supposed to eat all of the time.

  2. Your cleanse sounds not only refreshing, but really tasty. I too would love to eat this way all the time!
