With a little help from my friends

14 Feb

I’m into day ten of the cleanse and I’m feeling really good. Monday and Tuesday afternoons of last week I felt the lag at 3ish. All I felt like was cupcakes with a decadent serving of creamy sugary icing. But so far… I have resisted. I think what has been helping is my latest craze – banana and berry smoothies. Without dairy and sugar I have been making my beautiful shakes with two bananas, frozen blueberries, a teaspoon of honey and the special ingredient, coconut cream. So so delicious.

Since then with my tastes to sugars getting sharper I have cut out the need for sweetners of any sort, and has discarded the honey. Last night the recipe included: two bananas, a mix of frozen blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, half a can of coconut milk, soda water and a splash of soy milk. It was thicker and very tasty indeed.

Other things in my week of food that have been making the cleanse alot more palatable.

Chicken rice paper wraps

Three units of alcohol a week, give or take. 🙂

Gluten free cornflakes with blueberries, necterines and soy milk.

So the cleanse continues… And the cravings are getting less and less. I definitely don’t feel the same need for sweet things. It actually is empowering to resist them. It feels good to deny. There has been talk of this cleanse continuing til May. Can I do it? We’ll see!

My friend B cooked dinner for S and I last night – grilled marinated chicken with asparagus and the most amazing carrots ever!

      It absolutely is, but having said that it doesn’t make me stop dreaming about fried chicken and creamy cakes from time to time! It’s really hard to stop the addiction!
