Week 3: deep detox

Standard
veg 2 April 2015

This week’s delivery of organic deliciousness.

Spring has arrived with gusto!  I can practically watch the leaves growing on the huge fig tree outside my home office window. I’ve taken to having a little siesta most days in a sunny spot in the living room, for some reason I sleep deeply with the sun shining on my head.

Radishes

It doesn´t get fresher than this!

I’ve been doing 2 fruit meals (and snacks) and 1 veggie meal and it’s going VERY well.  I tried all fruit one day, but by night time I really needed to have a salad for that saltiness.

Most days I have my orange juice for breakfast, a banana mid morning and then a fruit smoothie for lunch.  Afternoons I snack on fruit and tthen our evening meal is mostly 50% raw and 50% cooked   I imagine I’ll be able to eat raw evening meals as the weather gets warmer and set aside those gorgeous curries for autumn/ winter. We’ve been having loads of ginger, chili and fresh turmeric over the past months, but now the weather calls for more ying foods. If I feel peckish I have fruit in between, being careful not to mix with any other food groups.

Beet juice

Beet, celery & parsley juice

Yesterday our organic veggie/fruit delivery arrived and so I decided to juice beetroot, parsley and celery for lunch today.  It was the first time I’ve ever juiced beetroot (always been a little suspicious of them) – that and my childhood memories of revolting bottled beetroot…… AND celery – another vegetable I’ve taken too, despite knowing how good it is for me.  The verdict – all in all not too bad – I might try celery with carrot another day.  LOVE the gorgeous pink colour!!

I’ve slipped up a couple times and had some coffee when out, but at home I’m only drinking organic Green Rooibos, filtered water and an occassional glass of sparkling Veri.

Getting loads of sleep and rest, meditating, dry skin-brushing and exercising every day.

Weight loss since 01/01/2015: 7,5kg / 16 lbs

Deep detox: week 2

Standard

I’m feeling fabulous on this high fruit diet.  In just one week I have noticed my joints are not as stiff, and even Miquel has said his back is feeling better and has improved mobility.  So, we’re both seeing the benefits of 2 fruit meals a day.

WEEK 2: 23 – 29 March

Today we start week 2.   The plan is;

  • 2 fruit meals, fruit snacks + 1 veggie meal x 6 days a week
  • fruit ONLY x 1 days a week

Dr Morse addresses my questions & new meal plan

Standard

How excited was I to watch Dr Morse’s Q & A # 301 and hear him addressing my questions (16m11s)!  As I’d thought, I have a lot of work to do. He recommends I go on a 100% fruit diet. so I’m moving that way gently, starting with at least 1 full fruit meal a day.  Eye photos here.

Natural skincare

Standard

I have always suffered from dry, dehydrated skin and have tried every imaginable product available, with little satisfaction. However some timrose watere ago I decided to go the natural route and have been using 2 simple 100% natural products to clean my skin: Sweet Almond OIl to cleanse and remsweet almondove make up, followed up with Rose Water to tone. The results have been AMAZING, even in the middle of winter where where have to deal with ‘tramontana’ – an extremely strong, drying wind for days on end. I buy both these products online from http://www.ecco-verde.es (they also have online shops all over Europe and the UK)

Getting back on track

Standard

Life has taken over a little in the past few weeks, and bit by bit I have gone off the detox road.  A couple of cups of coffee here, a sandwich there, some pasta, less water and more cava (champagne) and wine on a romantic getaway…. and all of this has added up to me NOT feeling well.  In fact I can say without a doubt that my body DOES NOT like any of it!  I’ve been feeling lethargic, irritafork-in-the-roadble and just not quite right. I have also been feeling a little dizzy for over 2 weeks now (and even though this might very well be related to the CMT) and need to get it checked. My blood pressure may be too low. It’s a little worrying.  Then again the timetline ties in with me going off my super healthy habits…… so it could be anything.

Anyway, it’s done and I have learned an incredible amount about myself, so it’s time to dust myself off and get back on Detox Road!

Freezing toes and lentil soup

Standard

Well, I went off my strict (alkaline) fruit / veg detox diet this last week  and had some heavy (vegan) bean, chickpea and lentil dishes. In my defence, the weather has literally been FREEZING (it actually snowed for 20 minutes this morning), and quiet honestly, there is only so much raw veg you can face in depths of an icy winter.  That said, I didn´t feel all that great afterwards and my tum was not happy – so, there’s definitely something in it!
