Today, I felt so… lifted. Like, you know how you board a plane on a cloudy day, then as your flight ascends above the clouds, everything is clear and bright? That “above-the-cloud” feeling is how I felt yesterday: productive, nice, creative.
Apparently there’s some confusion about the difference between a detox, a cleanse, and a fast. I’m in this thing for 90 days, so I’ll be phasing through all three. I’ll have another
post to go more in-depth on the difference, but for right now, just know that I’m detoxing.
I’m using the smoothie recipes in the book below to support the detoxifying functions of my body. They will be phased out (not completely) as I develop the Food Discipline to stay away from so much of what I don’t need, and as I adopt a more plant-based diet.
I’ve almost eliminated dairy and sugars, but as long as my aunt keeps making this banana bread, I will keep eating it.
As long as I start my day off with 2 cups of water and a cup of tea, maybe 2, then I’m not too hungry until close to dinner time. The smoothies are perfect during the day.
Then for dinner, like tonight, I’ll bake some sweet potatoes and veggie burgers with some of the approved dressings from Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide, like kale, tomatoes, and cucumber.
Where to Find Stuff
The recipes I’m using are a modified version from this book: The 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. (This is an affiliate link, which means you click, you buy, I get a couple dollas.)
I replaced some of the greens and fruits with some that are on the approved Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide, which you can download here..
You can also follow me on social media where I might be doing stuff that may or may not be interesting. But I’m documenting so that in August (my birthday month), I can look back and see what kind of growth took place.
