We just finished the dinner for our 7th day. The reset takes place in 3 phases, 1 week per phase. This first week we have been weaning ourselves off of animal proteins. Weeks 2-3 are strictly vegan (no animal proteins, including eggs and dairy). Sitting down at the end of day 7, I can honestly say that it has gone better than I thought it would have gone. It hasn’t been a walk in the park, but it is doable. We have tried some things that were good, we have tried some things that were not so good. But I feel good that we have tried new healthier food choices.
Tomorrow we start with 2 cups for fresh fruit for breakfast. I just got done chopping/rinsing strawberries and blueberries. I will chop some green apples in the morning to add to the mix. The key with the fruit it to find the lower glycemic index fruits. I made our pinto beans and rice blend for lunch along with a salad. And for dinner we are going to try the Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Bisque. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
Still struggling with drinking enough water. I don’t feel dehydrated but I know that I need to get in more water than I am currently getting. I haven’t had coffee in two weeks and I am ok with it. 🙂 I had green tea on Sunday for something warm to drink at church, but other than that, I have stayed away from caffeine. And guess what? My energy level is good! But I will keep in mind that we have been sleeping in just a little longer than we normally do. I am hungry in a normal way. Not starving.
Tomorrow begins phase 2. I am proud of my husband and I for sticking with the program thus far. We start a new supplement tomorrow called Detox. That will last for the next 7 days. Wish us well!
