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.
