The other reason (and maybe more important reason) that I’m going to stop the official cleanse is that I’m not feeling any better than I do when I eat non-cleanse healthy. I figure, if I don’t feel any better than normal and I’m not enjoying myself, then I might as well eat other healthy food.
I did end up breaking the cleanse today with dinner: drunken noodles with fried tofu and spring rolls with peanut sauce (those might be Crazy Sexy).
However, I’m going to apply the “take the best and the leave the rest” attitude to my diet. I enjoy juicing and drinking smoothies (especially the pineapple basil one!!!) so I’d like to continue with that. I love eating Crazy Sexy snacks. I learned I love pears! Who knew?! I thought I didn’t. I’m also in love with spiced almonds. Last week I made curried almonds and this week I made my own barbeque ones (recipe to come). And I really enjoyed the flavor of almost every recipe I made, so they’ll still be on my radar. In a nutshell, I still adore Kris Carr and many of the elements of her diet.
For the future, in terms of healthy eating, I want to try out at least one recipe from each section of Color Me Vegan, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. I received it for Christmas and have been anxious to test out some recipes.
