New year’s theme

3 Comments Uncategorized

Drum roll please…I completed the cleanse! I drank 99% of all of the juices (couldn’t get through all of the beet-based one). Honestly, I probably won’t do it again. It did a great job with nutrients — I rarely felt hungry. However, they did not taste great and some were acidity, burned when going down . The worst part was missing the act of eating!

I finished the cleanse on January 1 and rolled right into Whole30. I read the book about the program and flagged all the recipes I want to make. Basically, you eliminate alcohol, sugar, gluten, dairy and legumes — yes, there were some tears. But it’s only 30 days…and I’ve got a couple of friends doing it this month too!

My friend Amy and I cooked up a tomato, ground pork sauce served over zucchini noodles — which was super yummy and filling. I bought a veggie spiralizer, found bacon (at Whole Foods), that doesn’t have any sugar, and stocked my fridge with good foods.

While I’ve committed to Whole30, it’s not a resolution. Instead of a laundry list of things I “must” do, I’m going to have a theme for the year: mindfulness. I’m going to strive to be more mindful of:

  • what I put in my body
  • what I do to my body
  • how I interact with others (being more focused)

…whatever I do in my life.

I’m thrilled to start a new year!

I believe this is going to be an amazing year for all of us! Happy 2016!!
