Vegan Cleanse Day 1

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Today’s Meal Plan:

  • Breakfast:  Bob’s Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, and raw Sunflower Seeds
  • Snack: Homemade Hummus and Mary’s Gone Crackers Herb Rice and Seed Crackers
  • Lunch: Raw Mexican “Rice”
  • Snack: Sweet Cinnamon Soaked Raw Almonds
  • Dinner:  Quinoa and Lentil Salad with lots of raw spinach and summer squash

Mostly raw, I would say 60/40.

I woke up hungry and rested, before my alarm at 5:15.  This AM was Chest, Shoulders, and Tris, and ARX.  I did OK.  I stopped using Xtend for the cleanse and I felt weaker in my workout.  I was able to do more ARX than in the past, though.

My hips and glutes are still really sore.  After sitting for a while I walk funny.  Considering I have lost 22 pounds in two months, while still eating upwards of 1600 calories a day though, I am NOT complaining.  It is just taking HARD WORK.

I was hungry for breakfast, loved it, and felt satisfied when done.  I ate at about 7:30

Snack was about 10:30 and I was hungry before, knew when to stop (felt satisfied) but am a little hungry again now, at 11:25.  I am behind on my water, so I focused on that and made it until 12:20.  I was hungry.

The Raw Mexican “Rice” was DELICIOUS.  I will eat this again and often!  I have to admit, though, I made a hybrid recipe to the link so I will post it here:

  • 1/2 head cauliflower ground up to tiny chunks in food processor
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 sweet onion, chopped
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • organic salsa seasoning from Whole Foods

I mixed this all up and put in fridge over night.  Today I added 1/2 avocado and a whole small tomato, both chopped.  So so so so so so good 🙂  So, so, so, so yummy.  My husband walked by and asked what I was eating.  He was scared to try it but did, and LIKED it!  🙂

I was satisfied and felt like I could do my lunch cardio without issue.

Was hungry about 3, ate the raw soaked nuts that I added cinnamon and stevia to while they soaked.  Melissa called them “Sweet Cinnamon Nuts”  they were very good.  I also had 2 cups of Rooibos Tea, it was by Mighty Lead and called Chocolate Mint Truffle.  Caffiene free and delish!

I had forgotton to purchase pro-biotics so YES I went to Whole Foods AGAIN.  I got Acidophilus Pearls.  Started taking them at dinner.  I ate at Whole Foods so that I wouldn’t have to cook when I got home. I had Quinoa with lemons and lentils.  It is a good salad there and easy in a pinch.  More expensive than making it at home, but I could not have adhered to my no food within 3 hours of bed had I waited.  I was VERY hungry when I ate it and was VERY satisfied when I finished.

I struggled a little with hunger about 8 PM.  I was tired, and felt a little down so I went to bed at 9:00.  So glad that I had eaten at 6!  I was battling mood, so hopefully that is part of the cleanse and will be over soon… ’cause I also woke up in the same mood this AM.  😦 Boo-hoo.
