As according to the dictionary
I have no intention of going to the hospital. People complaining of muffin tops only congest the emergency wards. They just take up valuable space for real emergencies.
That’s why I am going to continue referring to it as Cleaning house.
No coffee, no alcohol, no sugar, no flour and very little fat. That’s the plan.
Just typing, no coffee brought a little drop of sweat down my forehead. Breathe deeply.
Instead I am having this.
7:45 a.m: 1/4 lemon in hot water.
10:00 a.m: 1/4 lemon in green tea
10:30 a.m: 1 grapefruit, 2 slices honey-dew melon, 4 strawberries, 1 small peach, 1 bunch of spinach, 1 tsp Spirulina, 1 tsp glutamine, 1 tsp psyllium, ice and 1/2 cup 100% pomegranate juice. Blend into a shake
This made a lot! tomorrow I will make it smaller. I feel water-logged. It was very good though, refreshing and no spinach taste at all.
2 p.m: 8 medium tomatoes, big bunch of fresh basil, 2 cloves garlic, the juice of 1/2 a lime, 1 bunch of spinach, 1 white onion and cayenne pepper. Blend until creamy and heat half of it in the microwave for a tomato soup.
I just realized that this looks exactly like breakfast! It’s not I promise, the basil and spinach make everything look like baby diarrhea. Even though I admit to being a salt abuser, this had none and it was actually pretty darn good! I added some chopped broccoli to the soup for something to chew on.
7 p.m. 1 large bowl spiraled zucchini topped with the other half of the tomato soup from lunch with 1 diced tomato and mushrooms with a sprinkle of brewers yeast.
If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler and make long strips with the zucchini or simply cut it into long thin strips. Brewers yeast is often used by vegans since it is a good source of Vitamin B which they may be lacking from no meat consumption. It has a nice salty flavor almost like parmesan cheese. I often sprinkle it on roasted veggies or pasta sauces.
So all in all, today was a bit challenging and by the end of the evening I was craving bread. Toast and peanut butter to be exact. I also did not work out today so I’m still not sure how the energy level is affected. I will say that my biggest worry was coffee but after the green tea and lemon, I completely forgot about it.
Have you made any New Years resolutions?
