Day 12- We're over 1/2 way there!
Congratulations on getting over 1/2 way through the detox! Whoop whoop!
Here was how day 12 looked for me...started with a smoothie. I realize that majority of my mornings a start out the same way...smoothie. I start off nearly every day with a workout (sometimes two) and the last thing I want is food sitting in my stomach during this. So "pre-digested" food in the form of a smoothie increases digestion and my ability to absorb those nutrients. I'll start trying to mix it up (different smoothie recipes and different meals all together).
I did a 4 hour workout this morning (3 hour ride followed by a 1 hour run). During the workout, I had 2 servings of Skratch (definitely not RESTART legal, but quite necessary for this type of workout) and 1 pocket packet of organic raw coconut butter by Artisana. And lots of water and salt! It was warm out there!
When I got home after my workout, I ate left over spring rolls (Rice paper-a modification, carrots, cucumber, cabbage, kelp noodles and red bell peppers) from yesterday's party with a pre-grilled chicken thigh and chicken wing.
After a short nap, I spent the afternoon picking peaches off my peach tree. Hard not to indulge in them, but instead, I spent the night (and will be spending most of tomorrow) processing these peaches. I plan to dry, purée, freeze and make fruit leather with collagen out of them so the can be enjoyed in moderation after the detox is over.
For dinner, we enjoyed pork ribs with homemade BBQ sauce, leftover Thai cauliflower rice salad and grilled zucchini.
For dessert, we had coconut mound bites (recipe to come soon!).
