Breakfast: Mango, avocado and mint smoothie. Very good!
Snacks: Celery with hummus and salsa macha. An apple or two while wandering around the orchard.
Dinner: Sesame crusted haddock (adapted from this recipe for crisp sesame fish fillets – I added smoked paprika with the sesame) with more of the infamous veggie noodles.
I love them, but it’s time to take a break from the veggie noodles.
Today was a bit of a weird one. Due to last night’s late meal, I couldn’t have my first meal until about 11am. So I didn’t really have lunch, and then I had a fairly substantial dinner. After yesterday’s quinoa flour fail, I tried sesame crusted haddock which worked much better. But I was basically repeating last night’s meal and was a little bored with the whole thing. It’s time to mix it up! I have some ideas. They involve quinoa, the seed not the flour.
I am also going to try to be more gung-ho about the liquid meals “rule” and stick to having my liquid meals at breakfast and dinner. So far I’ve been mostly having smoothies for breakfast, soup for lunch and a “solid” dinner. But the problem is that I’m often REALLY hunger at dinner time and I think I overeat – the proof is in my digestion, and I’ve been feeling a little sour-stomached in the morning. (Proof that you can eat too many vegetables.) The opposite of the Clean detox intention!
All that being said, I’m feeling pretty good. This “detox” is pretty easy, and actually very fun, and I must admit it’s been really nice feeling super good throughout the weekend (vs spending Saturday and/or Sunday feeling less than stellar due to weekend drinking and foodie indulgences).
One last thing – the mango smoothie was really good and my first use of my homemade cashew milk. Will do again, maybe with some ginger next time…
