Clean Detox Day 21: The end – or the beginning?

Clean detox day 21

Breakfast: Creamy fig and cardamom smoothie. 3 figs, 50g avocado, 1 tsp flaxseed, 7g almonds, 1 prune (from Gascony!), ice, water and a few crushed cardamom seeds. ~260 calories. I was hoping for a more vibrant purple than I got but the taste was nice.

Lunch: A curried soup made by pureeing leftover dal and curried courgettes with some veggie stock. Garnished with cilantro and coconut chutney.

Dinner: Mexican night. Refried black beans, roast butternut squash, cumin-spiced zucchini, guacamole, green salad.

Thus marks the end of my detox. I’m not exactly eager to finish this thing because I’ve been feeling so good on it so I don’t expect my diet will change very much. I am very much looking forward to re-introducing “nightshade” vegetables back into my diet (tomatoes and peppers!). But I’m not pining for coffee or alcohol as much as I thought I would. And I’m also really looking forward to my next breakfast smoothie. Detox for life? We’ll see… more to come in a follow-up post…

      Thanks so much for your support. After a weekend of retoxing, I’m ready to get back to soups and smoothies. I’m working on a modified detox concept. Detox for life! Tomatoes will definitely feature.
